Visit Muogamarra in spring as the reserve transforms into a brilliant display of colour when wildflowers come into bloom. You’ll see waratahs, majestic angophoras, old-man banksias, pink boronias and delicate native orchids. The reserve is home to many native animals like echidnas, and birdwatchers might glimpse a soaring wedge-tail eagle or an iconic lyrebird.

To visit Muogamarra Nature Reserve, join a Discovery guided tour and discover the secrets of this special place from our volunteer guides. You'll get the chance to see Aboriginal rock engravings and learn about the area's significance on a Muogamarra Indigenous heritage walk. 

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. This is only possible during one of the 6 weekends that the reserve is open to the public though. If you're interested in a self-guided walk, please contact Kalkari Discovery Centre for information on walking track options.
