The Lane Cove National Park is only 10km north-west of Sydney and covers 600ha. It was Gazetted as a National Park in 1938.

Although its waterways and the edges of the park are being encroached by weeds, it remains an incredible source of wildflowers - many of which are unique to the Sydney Basin.

There's an estimated 550 native flora species recorded in the Park. Our website has a third of those.

The National Parks and Wildlife website provides details of the Park.
