Beautiful national park probably overlooked as the Blue Mountains seem to be more popular. Easily accessed from the city centre by public transport, north shore train line goes straight there. Hop off at Mt Kuringai station, stunning 11km trail round the creek with some spectacular views. Trail leads right to Berowra station where you can get a train straight back... More

A leisurely rail trip up the Northshore Line from the heart of Sydney will deliver you into the Ku-Ring-Gai Chase, a beautiful area of typical Australian eastern coastal bushland teeming with flora and fauna. Listen to the sounds of birdlife ringing through the treetops and you may even happen upon the occasional Rock Wallaby or kangaroo. The area abounds with... More

On our way through the national park we stopped just past the first bridge over the creek. There is a track down to the creek which has a nice little waterfall. There is a larger waterfall there also but we didn't venture down the rock to view that. Nice spot for a quick stop.

If you like a nice windy road or train trip and a quiet lunch with water views at the other end then this is entirely for you. Conveniently it is located in between the Central Coast and Newcastle so it is easily accessible by all. Just ensure you are extra vigilant on the weekends regarding motorcycles.

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.
