Explore the diversity of plants and animal life on the southern side Muogamarra Nature Reserve. This 7km guided morning bushwalk is a rare opportunity to visit the area. It’s usually closed to the public to protect its fragile ecosystems.

Walk downhill from Cowan Oval through dry, ridge-top heathland and into cool, shaded rainforest areas. You’ll see waratahs, majestic angophoras, old-man banksias, pink boronias and delicate native orchids. Birdwatchers might glimpse a soaring wedge-tail eagle or an iconic lyrebird.

You’ll then arrive at Bujwa Bay and visit the site of the old boatshed and house. Your experienced National Parks and Wildlife guide will tell you about the rich history of the area. Enjoy a break for morning tea while you take in the stunning views over Berowra Creek.

Bring at least 1 litre of drinking water and morning tea. It’s a good idea to wear comfortable, enclosed shoes and bring a hat, sunscreen and all-weather clothing.
