Discover a hidden paradise of native wildflowers at Muogamarra Nature Reserve, just north of Sydney, when it opens on weekends from Saturday 10 August until Sunday 15 September. The reserve is only open for six weekends a year to protect the fragile ecosystems and Aboriginal heritage. Spot the rare wildflowers and take in expansive views across the Hawkesbury River on a walk or guided tour.
Parking is limited on site so we will car pool from Gordon station - please indicate below if you have a car or would like a lift. The park entrance is a 30 minute drive from Gordon station, so we will meet at 8.30 to try to be at the park soon after it opens at 9.00 am.
Once at the nature reserve we will have free time to explore as you wish, however you may like to book onto one of the discovery walks. We will aim to spend two to three hours there in the morning and then arrange a place to meet up for lunch (bring your own).
Some things to note:
1. There is an entry fee of $15 ($10 concession). It really helps if people can have the correct money in cash in order to speed up the entry process. NSW National Park annual passes are not valid for entry to Muogamarra Nature Reserve.
2. The entry gate is on the left of Peats Ferry Rd, just before Pie in the Sky.
Its then a 2.5km drive along a bush track to the parking area.
3. We don't think there is anywhere to buy any food once on site, so please bring food, coffee, water, and a picnic chair might also be a good idea. Insect repellent and sunscreen will also be a good idea.
