Garawarra State Conservation Area

It’s not often you get to retreat to the bush, so close to the city. Garawarra State Conservation Area borders the Helensburgh end of Royal National Park between Sydney and Wollongong. It’s a haven of scribbly gum and red bloodwood, with patches of subtropical rainforest, making the area perfect for bushwalking and hiking.

Take a walk or ride your mountain bike along Cawleys Road trail. It’s a great place for birdwatching, and you could easily spot satin bowerbirds, honeyeaters and perhaps even a lyrebird. Horse riding is also popular in Garawarra, and there are scenic bridle trails located in the reserve to the west of Helensburgh.

Enjoy a picnic at Kellys Falls picnic area, with breathtaking views of its waterfalls below.
