I highly recommend Lane Cove National Park for a leisurely stroll along the river, a picnic, or a bit of a paddle on a row boat from the Lane Cove Boatshed. There is plenty of shade and a small playground on the Lady Game Drive side of the park, near the park office. Parking is paid, but it is very... More

Near Quest North Ryde where I was staying is this peaceful, well maintained park in natural splendor. My quiet, uninterrupted walk on a Saturday morning recharged my batteries as I listened to birdsong and admired the ghostly gums. This is the place for walkers and others who desire a little bit of nature close to the city.

Lane Cove National Park has some lovely drives on sealed roads running along the side of the Lane Cove River. This is right in the suburbs of Sydney. When you drive up to the park from any direction you approach via Sydney normal traffic and infrastructure which then opens up to amazing bush land which I am used to travelling... More
