Discover Lake Parramatta Reserve

Lake Parramatta Reserve

Hiking in the Lake Parramatta Reserve offers a great day out, as you walk through 75ha of bushland, around an idyllic lake with a decommissioned dam.

Lake Parramatta was created as a result of the damming of Hunts Creek in 1856. The lake is now a recreational area with three marked bush walking trails.

The longest one is the full circuit walk that loops around the entire lake. The other two walks are much shorter and easier to do.
