If you’re looking for a nature walk that’s close to home but feels a million miles away, head to Marramarra National Park in north-west Sydney. Here, you’ll find Coba Ridge to Collingridge Point walking track. This mostly flat option treats you to beautiful views of the surrounding valleys and the calm waters of Berowra Creek on your way to Collingridge Point.

The track is popular with families, mountain bikers and wildflower enthusiasts – visit in spring to see the landscape burst with colour. You’ll see pink and purple boronias, soft yellow spike wattles, tall flowering grass trees, and bouquets of white on the long leaf smokebush.

The walking track starts at the end of Bloodwood Road and follows Coba Ridge fire trail for 4km. When you reach the junction, keep right and follow the track south for another 1km. You’ll reach an unfenced sandstone outcrop, with stunning views overlooking Collingridge Point and Berowra Creek.

For an extended, 20km return walk, at the junction stay left to continue another 6km to Coba Point. Or, if you’re keen to explore more, try the Marramarra Ridge to Smugglers Ridge walking track and combine it with a stay at Marramarra Creek campground. After a day of hiking, you can cool off in the river and enjoy an authentic bush camping experience.
