The Muogamarra Nature Reserve is located just north of Sydney and it’s the place to visit as we prepare to usher in spring. The reserve morphs into a floral wonderland with a striking display of colour and wildflowers in bloom. Get lost in a sea of native wildflower including waratahs, pink boronias, old-man banksias, native orchids and much more. Plus, native animals like echidnas can also be seen roaming about along with the lyrebird and more. It’s open only for a limited time every year for about six weeks so get in fast for a chance to see its extraordinary wildflowers in bloom.
Muogamarra Nature Reserve
Keen to get a glimpse of this stunning reserve in the city? The 2023 open season will run from August to September 2023, giving nature lovers and adventure seekers an opportunity to join a guided tour and unearth the many secrets of the place. Visitors can also see Aboriginal rock engravings, surrounding bushlands, colonial artefacts and spectacular views of the Hawkesbury River, Bar Island, Milson Island and Berowra Creek.
Visitors can book one of four guided tours or opt for a self-guided tour to explore the stunning reserve although previous open seasons have sold out quickly so you’ll need to be fast. The tours can be booked at different dates and times between Saturday, August 12 and Sunday, September 17. The reserve is closed for the rest of the year to preserve the delicate ecosystem. Head to the NSW National Parks website to book a spot. No better way to bring in the new season and bid adieu to winter.
