Muogamarra Nature Reserve near Cowan, just north of Sydney, will open its gates for six weeks this August and September, for the first time since 2019!


Every year around springtime, the reserve transforms into an extraordinary display of colour and life, as many of the 900 species of native plants blossom and bloom. 

The 2,500 hectare reserve is only open for a limited time each year to help preserve the fragile ecosystem and significant heritage of the area to the Ku-ring-gai people. 

This year, Muogamarra Nature Reserve will open from Saturday 13th August to Sunday 18th September. Entry to the reserve is restricted to those on pre-booked guided and self-guided tours, so book ahead to avoid disappointment!

Guided Tours

Choose between four different guided tours that explore four separate areas of the reserve, all led by experienced National Parks volunteers; 

The guided tours differ in distance covered, difficulty level, and cost per person so be sure to find one suitable for your skill level and wallet!

Self Guided Tours

While there are four different guided tours available at different times throughout the six-week opening period, self-guided tours will only run on Sundays. 

Self-guided tours cost $15 per person and still need to be booked in advance, along with a free car space, with a limit of 140 car spaces available at the reserve per day.

Don’t miss out on your first chance in three years to have a sticky beak at this stunning wildflower display!
