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

We’ll also see the old cabin site and scattered relics from Tipper’s era.

We'll then walk to Point Loop, a natural rock platform with a gorgeous view to Bar Island, Berowra Creek and the Hawkesbury River.

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