We’ll begin at the information centre and follow the John Duncan (JD) Tipper loop. We’ll pass by spectacular flowers of all colours, from white and yellow through to the brightest pink and red. Some interesting historical places along this path include the museum and the JD Tipper lookout and monument. You'll learn what inspired John Tipper to conserve this beautiful pocket of bushland.

We’ll also see the old cabin site and scattered relics from Tipper’s era. At the end of the walk we’ll return to the information centre to explore the many photographic and information displays there.

Muogamarra Nature Reserve is open for just 6 weekends a year to preserve its fragile ecosystems and Aboriginal heritage.

Wear enclosed sturdy walking shoes, and bring weather protection, drinking water and all food and snacks. Help us keep Muogamarra Nature Reserve plastic-free.
