In 2015, an out of control bushfire ripped through Cloisters Reserve in Salter Point. Since this event, the City’s Natural Areas team have undertaken restoration in the form of weed control and planting of native species to assist the bush to regenerate.
The Cloisters Reserve restoration area is comprised of two sites located between Benson Chase and Roebuck Drive that are approximately 0.6ha in total. The Reserve forms part of Bush Forever Site 227 and is one of only two areas of the Kwinana Freeway Foreshore containing remnant coastal vegetation. Its condition varies from degraded to very good.
The Cloisters Reserve foreshore remnant vegetation is highly important for bird, reptile and frog breeding and conserved as a high priority to maintain the environmental value of the area and increase visual amenity.
