Muogamarra Nature Reserve was awash with native flowers of bright pinks and sunny yellows on 31 August. A group of 30 members of OFF, Menai Wildflower Group and Hurstville Council Bushcare enjoyed the splendour of the last winter’s day of 2013. Our group was a little too early for the flowering of most of the waratahs, but we did manage to see some of these iconic specimens. But, the boronias, eriostemons and pultenaeas were in full flower.
This reserve offers various walks of different grades, aspects and views and has a deep history of colonial existence. The NPWS staff and volunteers were very knowledgeable and extremely helpful about the program of walks available – either as a guided walk or as an amble at your own pace.
This is the second year Sharon and I have been to this reserve and we always experience or see something different. As this reserve is only open 6 weekends a year check out NPWS website for next year’s opening times.
Muogamarra Nature Reserve Walk on 31 August 2013 was led by Jason Cockayne and Sharon Pearson
