Is a great place to relax and have a good time. Apart from being a great place for family picnic, BBQ boasting a picturesque cascade and natural bushland for bush-walks and nature studies, it also has great facilities to cater for a wedding. Bookings are necessary to use the wedding garden. Further information on Nurragingy Reserve can be found on Blacktown City Council's webpage.
Nurragingy - the name
The name "Nurragingy" commemorates one of the two aborigines of the Dharruk (Dharug, Daruk) tribe who received the first land grant to natives from Governor Macquarie in 1819. The other title holder was Colebee, whose name has been given to the Centre within the Reserve. A painting by local Aboriginal artist Danny Eastwood, depicting this land grant hangs inside the Colebee Centre.
Nurrangingy - history
In the early days of the development of the City of Sydney, the Reserve formed part of the Cumberland Timber Forest - for some time a major supplier of timber for the construction of houses and fences as well as heating. Subsequently the area was used for everything from a leased horse stud to an illegal rubbish dump.
During the 1970's the land that today forms Nurragingy Reserve was purchased by the State Government, for the Eastern Creek Special Uses and Open Space Corridor, to act as green belt for the new residential and industrial developments in the Western Sydney region.
In 1981 the then NSW Department of Environment and Planning consented to lease, at a nominal charge, a section of the corridor land to Blacktown City Council for development as a passive recreation area.
The Council, by utilising funds from Commonwealth unemployment sources and its own money, adopted the project as its major Bicentennial project and set about turning a virtual dumping ground into the magnificent recreation area you see today.
