Guided Bushwalk to Ferndale Park, Chatswood

Join our free guided bushwalk to Ferndale Park Chatswood.

Ferndale Park

Ferndale Park is a long and narrow remnant bushland reserve that is surrounded by residential properties, located within the Lane Cove River catchment, Chatswood. It plays an important role linking a number of small bushland spaces to larger significant bushland reserves like Mowbray Park, Blue Gum Park and the Lane Cove National Park.

The value of Ferndale Park as bird habitat is reflected in the high number of forest and woodland birds present. Smaller remnant areas containing healthy mid-story vegetation are important in maintaining species diversity of birds, reptiles and mammals. The vulnerably listed Powerful Owl is known to roost and nest within the Park. There are also a suit of mammal species including four species of Microbats, Echidnas, Bandicoots and Antechinus that inhabit the area.
