The Secret’s Out: Marramarra National Park

Last week, we featured Berowra Valley National Park, today we are headed just north of Berowra to Marramarra National Park. It is close to Sydney; takes less than 1 ½ hours to drive there. Marramarra National Park is 11,785 hectares of land 40 km north west of Sydney’s CBD. However, it is hard to imagine that this nature wonderland is that close to one of the biggest cities in the entire Southern Hemisphere and all of Australia. It feels remote and is a haven for outdoor lovers because you can camp here, kayak, canoe, swim, cycle, picnic, bird watch, fish, and bushwalk. The Hawkesbury River, Berowra Creek, and Marramarra Creek are a few of the waterways in the park. There is also much to be learned about the Aboriginal heritage […]
