About this Event

Free Guided Bushwalk Warraroon Reserve to Tambourine Bay return

Sunday 21 February 2021 9 am to 12 noon.

Grade: Medium/easy bush tracks with steps and tree roots to negotiate.

Description: Enjoy a fascinating guided bushwalk through Warraroon Reserve and along Tambourine Bay’s shoreline. Warraroon contains the greatest diversity of species in Lane Cove with both ecologically endangered communities and endangered wildlife. You will see tall tree species, rainforest vegetation along the creek, wetland communities alive with frogs and a tidal mangrove wetland where the creek empties into Tambourine Bay. Ibis, Egrets and Spoonbills are often seen here wading in the mangroves. The endangered Powerful Owl and Grey-headed Flying Fox inhabit the Reserve. Among the acacias, ferns and wildflowers, we may see small native Finches and Whip-birds, beautiful pink Croweas or the pink Hyacinth Orchid which flowers in summer. During the walk the guides will explain the various issues unique to the management of suburban bushland.

There are spectacular rock formations sculpted by water and wind, sandstone cliffs and a natural rock bridge over a small waterfall in the creek. We’ll encounter interesting, historic, man-made structures such as a fresh water well cut into the sandstone bed of a creek in the early days of settlement of the north shore. Our turn around point will be at the sandstone ruins of the Riverview College change rooms where the college’s original salt water pool was constructed in Tambourine Bay.

We will stop for a snack and chat beside Tambourine Bay on our return walk.

Children are welcome.
