About the Quenda Search Project

Shire of Mundaring Libraries partnered in the Quenda Search Community Project. The Project aimed to find out where quenda, the bandicoot species found in South West WA, live in the Shire of Mundaring. The Project team ran from April to June 2020.

You can view a summary of the findings here.


Maybe you don't know what a quenda looks like, or you may see diggings and wonder what made them. The Quenda Search Team has developed information and activity resources to help you learn about quenda. Click on the links below to download them.
