We’ll walk along a ridge-top fire trail before descending to Djarra Creek crossing, where we’ll stop for morning tea. Hear about the early history of the area and view the brilliant display of plants and wildflowers along this guided walk. You'll learn about Glendale Road farm, the activities of Sir Edward Hallstrom (a driving force behind the development of Taronga Park Zoo) and the research activities of the University of NSW.

We'll stop for lunch overlooking pristine Berowra Creek and return via a loop track. Enjoy spectacular views across Muogamarra and the broader Hawkesbury plateau to the north, south and west. This is a rare opportunity to visit the nature reserve as it's usually closed to the public due to the fragile ecosystems.

A good level of fitness is required as there are some steep sections. There'll be time to stop, rest and take in views. Bring at least 1 litre of drinking water, lunch and snacks.
