NSW National Parks is hosting an overnight bushcare camp at Marramarra National Park. On Day 1, we'll make our way in an NPWS car convoy to the start of the Marramarra Ridge trail, and take a guided Discovery walk to Marramarra Creek. Enjoy a rest and bite to eat before heading a little downstream to our weeding site, where we’ll target scattered lantana and wild tobacco. After setting up camp at Marramarra Creek campground, volunteers will have plenty of leisure time to explore the creek and participate in cultural activities. On Day 2, we’ll get busy with a little more bush regeneration before walking back to Fiddletown.

Volunteers meet at Fiddletown, to transfer overnight equipment to an NPWS convoy car before the guided walk to Marramarra Creek. Limited camping equipment can also be booked by volunteers. Bush regeneration tools, on-site training and catering will be provided.
