Brightmore Reserve, Cremorne

Brightmore Reserve is a small open forest remnant on a ridgeline overlooking Willoughby Bay in Middle Harbour, located at the end of Little Young Street, Cremorne.

Brightmore Bushcare Group was formed in 1993. This group meets on the first and third Sunday of every month, except during the Bushcare break of December and January.


The vegetation communities at this location include Angophora Foreshore Forest and Blackbutt Gully Forest represented by the dominant tree species, Sydney Red Gum (Angophora costata), Blackbutt (Eucalyptus pilularis) and Sydney Peppermint (Eucalyptus piperita). Bird species include Eastern Whip Birds, Tawny Frogmouths and Kookaburras. Eastern Water Dragons are often seen beside the creek and falls.  

Essentially, Bushcare is a social activity. It is a great way to undertake light exercise and enjoy the great outdoors while contributing to the conservation of our bushland areas. Qualified supervision and equipment is provided free of charge. Just turn up at the specified dates and times listed below to participate. Wear gardening clothes, including; a long sleeved shirt, long pants, enclosed shoes and a hat. Please bring your own bottle of drinking water.
