Walk Agnes Banks Nature Reserve

Agnes Banks Nature Reserve is unique in the Sydney area and a wonderful place for wildflowers in both spring and autumn. It's unique because it consists largely of white dune sand, even though it's 60 km from the coast!

Not only does it have dune sand but some coastal plant species too, the conspicuous one being wallum banksia (Banksia aemula) which flowers (conveniently for the walk) at this time of the year. This is its only inland location. Among a number other species flowering in March will be the incredibly delicate nodding geebung Persoonia nutans, which is listed as endangered. At the bottom end of the reserve there is a distinctly different flora on waterlogged Londonderry Clay.
