Beelu National Park

Beelu National Park is a national park east of Perth, Western Australia. Lying south of Mundaring, Western Australia, and west of the Mundaring Weir Road, it is part of the group of parks known as the Parks of the Darling Range. The park was formerly named Mundaring National Park.

Mundaring National Park was established and gazetted in 1995 as part of the Protecting Out Old Growth Forests policy of the State Government. The park was renamed in 2008 as an acknowledgement of the traditional owners of the area. The word Beelu is derived from the Noongar word for river or stream. The Beelu people were the original peoples of the area whose district was bounded by the Helena, Swan and Canning Rivers.

The park contains an abundance of native flora including Jarrah, Marri, Zamia, Bull Banksia, Sheoak and Grass tree.
