This is the Landcare NSW Gateway for Wahroonga Waterways Landcare. For more regular updates, please see our Facebook page @WahroongaWaterwaysLandcare.

Wahroonga Waterways Landcare is a volunteer group established by Adventist Aged Care and works at Wahroonga Estate, a 34.1ha E2 Conservation Zone privately owned by the Seventh-day Adventist Church. It extends between Lane Cove National Park and Lucinda Avenue.


Wahroonga Estate contains remnant Sydney Sandstone Gully Forest, Sydney Turpentine Ironbark Forest and Blue Gum High Forest. Although privately owned, it is publicly accessible. To continue to allow this amazing resource to be used by the public, we have guidelines to entering the estate. This means:

1. No vehicles in the bush. Only staff have the right to drive service vehicles along tracks.

2. Dogs must be kept on a lead. Take dog droppings with you. Bins and bags are provided at most entrances for this purpose.

3. Walkers and dogs must stay on the path to prevent erosion.

4. Do not damage or remove plants, animals or habitat in the bush.

5. No fires and no smoking.

6. No camping.


We have had instances of the above taking place, so if you notice anything, please contact us at or on our Facebook page.


With the sponsorship of a Private Conservation Land Grant from the Foundation for National Parks and Wildlife, we are offering educative tours to schools in the region. Students are guided around Wahroonga Estate, in full- or half-day excursions to witness environmental control measures and urban interface impact management in action.
