View the wildflowers in Spring…
Muogamarra Nature Reserve is an extraordinary place to view wildflowers in spring, just north of Sydney. It opens just 6 weekends a year, preserving the fragile ecosystems and Aboriginal cultural heritage.
Visit Muogamarra in spring as the reserve transforms into a brilliant display of colour when wildflowers come into bloom. You’ll see waratahs, majestic angophoras, old-man banksias, pink boronias and delicate native orchids. The reserve is home to many native animals like echidnas, and birdwatchers might glimpse a soaring wedge-tail eagle or an iconic lyrebird.
To visit Muogamarra Nature Reserve, join a guided tour and discover the secrets of this special place from our volunteer guides. You’ll get the chance to see Aboriginal rock engravings and learn about the area’s significance on a Muogamarra Aboriginal heritage walk.
If you’d prefer to take things at your own pace, simply pack a picnic and a pair of binoculars and take in spectacular views on a self-guided walk. This is only possible during the 6 weekends that the reserve is open to the public.
