Western Sydney Parklands

A beautiful area to stop for a breath of fresh air! Moonrise Lookout has expansive views of Western Sydney that continue as far as the eye can see to the city skyline. Sugarloaf Ridge is a lovely, elevated picnic spot with district views.

Both offer nearby tracks for bushwalking and bird watching. The Sugarloaf Loop is an easy 2km one and Moonrise Loop is a challenging 6.2kms. See our side menu for maps.

  • See hire a picnic shelter  page for nearby facilities you can book for special occasions or large groups.
