The only place more beautiful in the Sydney area... More

Captain Arthur Philip said that Pittwater was the most beautiful waterways he had ever seen. Over 200 years later, Ku Ring Gai Chase gives access to this pristine area.

There is so much to do and see in this beautiful green space so close to the CBD. Take a picnic and find a lofty spot to look down on the sparkling Pittwater.
