Another great day located in the heart of Sydney. Parking is abundant as are the many walk trails and picnic spots. Take a hat and camera and enjoy the day.

This park is a wonderful respite from the urban jungle that Sydney has become. It has untouched forests and provides a great home for whatever wildlife still lives in the city environs. Great place to revive the spirit with much needed fresh air and the...More

Lovely natural parkland/bush with excellent picnic nooks with seats and fireplace/bar-b-q. Eight dollar charge to enter and drive through is a discouragement for repeated visits

Nice park with a cool river. It is well-maintained and clean. Lots of open grassy area as well as bushland. There are facilities to hire boats. Also barbecues are scattered throughout. Awesome winding roads for riding. Just watch out for cyclists and other pedestrians

Sydney is very lucky to have a National Park right in the suburbs. Plenty of picnic areas as well as a lovely river where you can hire canoe as well as dangle a fishing line (don’t forget your fishing license). A great place for kids...More
