Wallumatta Nature Reserve – North Ryde

A short drive from Sydney CBD, the unique open forests of Wallumatta Nature Reserve offer a quick nature getaway with bushwalking and birdwatching, near Ryde.

For a quick nature getaway without leaving town, Wallumatta Nature Reserve, near Ryde, protects the largest remnant forest of the Sydney turpentine and ironbark forest. Only 10km from the Sydney CBD, you’ll soon discover why it’s much-loved by locals as well as those keen on birdwatching and bushwalking.

The reserve was historically set aside as part of the Field of Mars Common in 1804 and again, in the 1980s, it was saved from housing development. Now it’s a tranquil bush oasis nestled in the suburbs and an important resource for environmental education and scientific research. Popular with botanists and school groups alike, local bush regeneration groups help to preserve this valuable original bushland.

With over 30 species of native birds, birdwatching is a must during your visit. While walking, keep an eye out for black-shouldered kites, masked lapwings and the vibrant blue-winged sacred kingfisher.
