Red Tailed Cockatoo Brixton Street WetlandsAbout the Wetland
Brixton Street Wetland in Kenwick is an extraordinary mixture of wetlands containing over 320 plant species, more than 20% of Perth's flora in just 0.005% of Perth's area. The wetlands hosts plant communities and species that are rare and endangered.

Brixton Street Wetlands lie on a very flat waterlogged Pinjarra Plain that lies at the base of the Darling Range. Over 97% of the bushland on these waterlogged soil have been cleared for agriculture or housing, making Brixton Street Wetland so important.

While the wetlands only cover 19 hectares they:

contain many different vegetated wetlands with fringing vegetation in or near to the original condition

support a very rich flora of over 320 species

contain plant communities that are rare and endangered and in need of species protection

support over 80 special wildflowers that are rare and endangered, have only recently been discovered by botanists, are uncommon on the Swan Coastal Plain and/or are uncommon in the Perth area

are habitat for the Quenda (Southern Brown Bandicoot), waterbirds and many native terrestrial and aquatic animals.

Getting involved
Looking after your local bushland is a great way to become involved in your local community. The Friends of Brixton Street Wetlands was formed in 1993 and welcomes new members and members of the public interested in lending a hand.

Friends of Brixton Street Wetlands activity mornings are held on the third Saturday of each month. Meet at the Alton Street gate, Kenwick, at 9am. Morning Tea provided. Please wear suitable footwear. RSVP: Regina on 9459 2964.
