Highlights: This is one of the last remaining turpentine-ironbark forests on Wianamatta shale soil in Sydney — only about 1% of the original forests remain in the metropolitan area.
Activities: A loop walk explores the transition zone between the wetter shale forests of Sydney's north shore and the drier shale woodlands west of Parramatta. Stop and enjoy the tranquillity of this important bushland remnant and take time to appreciate some of the 35 species of birds that have been recorded in the reserve.
Access: Corner of Twin Road and Cressy Road in the Sydney suburb of Ryde, 10 km north-west of the CBD. Access to the loop track is off Cressy Road.
