Fred Jacoby Park, Mundaring

Fred Jacoby Park Mundaring

Close to Mundaring Weir, Fred Jacoby Park is a lovely spot to take a stroll. Autumn is when this leafy park really comes alive – it’s many deciduous trees, including a giant oak, change colour from green to many shades of orange, red, and gold.

Found in the Beelu National Park, the park was once the property of an early settler Fred Jacoby, features trees from around the world. As well as lots of nature, you’ll also spot the Goldfields pipeline running along the trees.

One of the biggest English Oak Trees in Western Australia, is protected by a wooden deck.  Its trunk is immense and the oak is an impressive 140 years old+, planted in 1870!

A short walk-trail through the park tells the rich history of the park with interpretive boards.

Fred Jacoby Park is a great place for a picnic. In fact, I remember taking visiting English relatives there for an Aussie barbie and billy tea in the 1980s. It hasn’t changed much since then! There are plenty of picnic areas, and BBQs (these are wood BBQs) making it a quaint place for lunch by the pipeline.

The park itself is dog-friendly, but it is worth noting that furry friends are not permitted on tracks that lead into the national park, like the Portagabra Track.

Fred Jacoby Park is the start and finish point of the Portagabra Track. The 3.5km loop trail is moderately difficult, with some steep inclines through the peaceful Jarrah Forrest.

The park has public toilets and there is plenty of parking too. Here’s a tip… while there is parallel road side parking when you drive in, if you keep driving around, past the BBQ spots. There are far more parking spots at the top of the park, near to the main road and exit.

Want to explore more? At Fred Jacoby Park you are only 1km from the Mundaring Weir Hotel. As well as the hotel, there’s and arts and crafts gallery, plus the Mundaring Weir Interpretation Precinct too.

Find Fred Jacoby Park at Hampel Rd, Mundaring.
