A huge expanse of natural beauty - accessible from so many parts of the beaches and north shore areas. Difficult to believe it is so close to the congestion and noise of Sydney but a great place to escape those stresses.

The Ku-Ring-Gai Chase is a large area of outstanding national beauty near and along the northern beaches of Sydney. You can drive to many different walking tracks and viewing area, including West Head. A must do when in sydney

Kuring-ai Chase National Park is probably the highlight of the Aussie Northern beaches! Was so cool to be in the forest and bush , and only just up the road from some awesome Australian beaches! We saw a lot of wildlife too and it was very serene walking around and kayaking. I definitely want to go back again, one day!

With a stunning landscape, masses of aboriginal artwork and history dotted around the park, a magnificant river surrounded by untouched bush and all close to the amazing northern beaches that can be included in a day/two days of the area. I consider this a must do for Sydney, better than the overcrowded Blue Mountains. To absorb the aboriginal history its... More

When you are in Kuringai Chase national park, one would be forgiven if you sense that you where transported to another time, when Sydney was first colonised during the late 1700s. Native fauna and flora you won't see in any other part of the world. There are wild life signs in the park, if fortunate yo will see some koalas,... More

Ku-Ring-Gai Chase National Park was absolutely stunning. The drive there from Sydney was very pretty once getting out of the city. It was awesome to see koala crossing sign and kangaroo crossing signs. Once arriving at the park, the views were spectacular. The mountains hide a saltwater bay with great fishing. 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.
