At 26 hectares, Warriewood Wetland is the largest remaining sand plain wetland in the northern Sydney area. It provides a variety of habitats for native animals and also plays a vital role in flood mitigation, nutrient recycling and filtering sediments. The wetlands contain several Endangered Ecological Communities.
The 2.4km walkway network provides an excellent opportunity to enjoy the natural attributes of the wetlands and gives bird watchers greater access to enjoy their passion.
The wetlands are popular with Sydney's birdwatching community, particularly in autumn when the swamp mahogany trees are in flower. Over 80 bird species have been recorded including the endangered Regent Honeyeater, the Goshawk and Powerful Owl.
Dogs are prohibited from the boardwalk due to the sensitive environment. Bikes are prohibited from the boardwalk because of the narrow nature of the walkways.
