“A day in the lap of nature...... Ku-ring-gai Chase national heritage park”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 September 2012

If you want to go on exploring walking tracks, canoeing, breathtaking lookout points, fishing or just want to picnic and BBQ with your family..... Ku-ring-gai chase is the place to go. My husband and I had gone by car so we had to pay $ 11 entry fee. The park is open from 6:00am to 6:00 pm.
It is so vast with so many amazing views that it is not possible to cover it all in just one day. My fav is West head lookout point. It is located in the north eastern part of the park. The view of the Pacific ocean is just breath taking. It's a perfect romantic getaway.

Bobbin head is a great place for picnic and BBQ. It has a Marina too. There are many walking trails too. However, the food in the restaurant is not good so I suggest you carry your own food.

There is a great walking track called Sphinx Track. The highlight of this track is the Sandstone miniature of Egyptian sphinx made by a Serviceman. It is a memorial commemorating the fallen A.I.F soldiers during 1st world war.

There is so much left to explore so I will be going there again.

“Go bush ... no need to go far”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 December 2011

On the edge of some of Sydney's most prestigious northern suburbs, so easily accessed, though you need a car. Great walking tracks, virgin bush, wildlife for the observant; horse riding trails and stables in the area. A nice bush experience close to town.
