Londonderry Woodland Reserve is a haven for nature enthusiasts!

Accessible by invitation only, the woodland holds great significance as one of the last remaining examples of mature grassy woodland vegetation on the Cumberland Plain. It boasts majestic old trees and rare plants that serve as habitat for a diverse array of wildlife, including frogs, lizards, snakes, possums, and over 80 bird species.

Throughout the year, the reserve is adorned with vibrant colours due to its diverse understorey of rare herbs, orchids, and grasses. Rickaby’s Creek meanders through the reserve, creating a crucial corridor for eastern grey kangaroos and swamp wallabies, linking various patches of Cumberland Plain Woodland from the northeast to its termination at the Wianamatta Nature Reserve in the southeast.

Volunteers have the opportunity to assist CVA ensure the woodland's ongoing protection by removing weeds, monitoring threatened species and undertaking ""Caring for Country"" activities with Dharug Traditional Owners.
