Berowra Valley National Park
is one of those very special places within the Sydney Basin landscape. It is an area of great natural and cultural heritage importance, and yet is on our urban doorstep.
Berowra Valley is not only rich in biodiversity, but also contributes to the quality of living in Hornsby Shire - known to many as the 'bushland shire'.
The National Park conserves at least 18 vegetation communities, 10 threatened plant species and 11 threatened fauna species, and is known to contain over 230 vertebrate species - all within 30 kilometres of the Sydney CBD. In combination with the adjoining
Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park and Muogamarra Nature Reserve and adjacent Marramarra National Park, this Park contributes to a great network of protected areas in the Lower Hawkesbury River valley.
The resources linked to this web site are a 'must have' for those enjoying the many walking tracks, having a picnic, or studying some aspect of the park. With over 77 kilometres of walking tracks, including the Great North Walk, it is a park that is great for either a short day walk or an overnight journey.
The resources draw on both local knowledge and extensive scientific research, the culmination of
information gathered over many years.
