The wonder of Lawry Plunkett Reserve is that few people even know it exists, it sits right beside Sydney’s most popular harbourside beach. Lawry Plunkett is a 4 hectare reserve tucked away in a small gully. It doesn’t get all the fanfare, which strange because it’s less than 100 metres from the busy promenade and bustling cafes of Balmoral Beach.
Lawry Plunkett’s Sydney Sandstone Gully Forest supports over 110 species of native wildflowers and 40 native species.
As you wander the trails, you’ll come across an impressive cutting & the remnants of the Balmoral tramway system that operated from 1922 to 1958 when it was decommissioned.
Street parking, play equipment, seating, rest and recreation park with an open grassed area and Natural and Cultural Heritage Walk.
