Marramarra Creek campground is delightful. Set among the trees and by the tranquil waters of Marramarra Creek, this campground is in the northern outskirts of Sydney.
The beauty of this remote campground is that you can only access it by foot or by water, making it a peaceful retreat away from the crowds. Follow the easy 3.5km walk along Marramarra Ridge trail to the campground. Try your luck fishing in the creek or head off along Marramarra Ridge to Smugglers Ridge walking track to explore. Jump in your canoe or kayak and paddle around the mangroves. Wander off on foot and explore the orange orchards from early European settlers that still exist near the campground.
Lie back and listen to the chorus of birds in the trees above. You might see a majestic wedge-tailed eagle gliding high above. Keep your eyes out for swamp wallabies and bandicoots, then get ready for a peaceful night with a bit of stargazing.
