Muogamarra Nature Reserve, just north of Sydney, only opens for six weekends of the year, preserving its fragile ecosystems and Aboriginal cultural heritage. The 2019 season kicks off on Saturday 10th August and runs until Sunday 15th September.

Muogamarra is famous for its incredible wildflowers which bloom in all their multi-coloured glory every spring. It’s also home to native animals including echidnas, wedge-tailed eagles, and the iconic lyrebird.

Fancy a visit? Join a guided Discovery tour with the reserve’s passionate volunteers or head out for a self-guided stroll on the Muogamarra Aboriginal Heritage Walk.
