About this park
Conveniently situated on the Great Eastern Highway, Boorabbin National Park is nature’s rest stop. Experience the trees and wildflowers of the Great Western Woodlands.
There are lots of interesting plants to see. Walk among grevilleas, hakeas and featherflowers. In springtime their showy blooms are eye catching. Also look out for the three types of semi-arid banksia species. Swordfish banksia, inland banksia and the rare Lullfitz’s banksia are all present in the shrubby areas.
The park takes its name from the former Boorabbin townsite. Back in 1898 the settlement provided water for steam locomotives going to and from the Goldfields. The name Boorabbin comes from the Aboriginal name of a rock on the edge of the park.
