Muogamarra Nature Reserve


Located in the northern outskirts of Sydney, Muogamarra Nature Reserve is an extraordinary place, and it’s easy to see why. It's open around spring time for just 6 weekends a year to preserve the fragile ecosystems and Aboriginal heritage, transforming into a brilliant display of colour when spring wildflowers come into bloom.

When you visit Muogamarra, you’ll see majestic angophoras, old-man banksias, pink boronias and delicate native orchids. The reserve is also home to many native animals like the iconic echidna, and for birdwatchers there's plenty of birdlife to see. Look up to catch a glimpse of a soaring wedge-tail eagle or keep an eye ahead for a lyrebird.

To visit Muogamarra Nature Reserve, join a Discovery tour and hear the secrets of Muogamarra from our volunteer guides. See Aboriginal rock engravings and learn about the area’s significance on a Muogamarra Indigenous heritage walk.

Or if you’d prefer to take things at your own pace, simply pack a picnic and a pair of binoculars and take in spectacular views on a self-guided walk. If you're interested in taking a self-guided walk, phone Kalkari Discovery Centre to get more information on walking track options.
