Mookin-bah Reserve

Mookin-bah Reserve part of Bayside Parklands has been slowly developed over the past 10 15 years. Last weekend we decided the weather was perfect for a walk, so we went to have a look. This reserve is so large that you seem to find new paths and walks each time you visit.

Bush reserve

The land has been reclaimed from old housing estates with hundreds of new trees planted. The reserve seems to go on forever, as you walk from melaleuca forests out into wetlands from concrete paths to grass walkways and over small bridges that pass across Lota Creek. In reality, it is all captured in a small section of land.

Still, I couldn't stop marvelling at how fast the landscape changed and how remote and tranquil it was.

Home to water birds

The reserve is home to koalas, bandicoots and two large ponds for water birds, so dogs must remain on leash. Nevertheless, there are loads of new smells for them, so they enjoy the experience as much as their human parents. Despite the fact that there are no playgrounds or formal play areas, it is a great place for kids to run and explore. Once you enter, the city seems to disappear and you leave feeling grateful the area has been protected and reserved for people to enjoy.

The reserve can be accessed from Whites Road, Manly or Greencamp Road, Wakerly.
