Bassendean Green Trail

In 2020, the State Government began construction on a principal shared pathway (PSP) next to the Success Hill Train Station, closing the final gap in the Perth to Midland PSP. As part of the project, the Department of Transport, Main Roads WA and Town of Bassendean developed the Green Trail initiative to add native landscaping to the area along the new path, and broader route. The State Government-funded initiative is the second of its kind in WA, and will create a shaded and scenic route for walkers and riders alike.


Bassendean Green Trail Gallery

The Town of Bassendean Green Trail Gallery is a digital art trail showcasing the talents of young, local artists with the aim of creating moments of engagement for the trail.

Between First and Third Avenue, artworks created by Cyril Jackson Senior Campus art students are on display, accessed by a QR code.  Each artwork is designed in collaboration with a Sound Artist, to create an evocative experience whilst walking along the pathway. Local history, archival images and stories were the starting point for the project, utilising information found in the Towns local studies collection.   This was done with the support of professional artists as they created works in response to the location.

Bassendean Green Trail Landscaping

On ground works for the Green Trail initiative started in May 2021 with a community tree planting day, where residents assisted in the installation of 39 street trees along the PSP, from the river end of Railway Parade to the railway underpass. Planting works started in June, with students from La Salle College participating in planting days to work towards their Certificate II Active Volunteering Course. 2021 planting works will extend from the river end of Railway Parade to the Bassendean Train Station, using a selection of native waterwise plants. Over 6,000 plants will be used to create a scenic walking and cycling route, provide local cooling benefits and provide additional habitat within the Town.
