You have to drive quite a way and pay entry to the national park, but West Head is worth it. The views of Broken Bay, Lion Island and the Pittwater side of Palm Beach are just spectacular. The viewpoint is well set up with pathways, car parking and picnic tables. There is no shop (for once - it wouldn't be appropriate). Go on a sunny day.

This is a place of mixed interest.
60 Minutes drive from the centre of Sydney, no way to get there by public transport, it overlooks Pittwater and Lion Island, in the middle of a beautiful natural park, water on most sides, war time gun emplacements, aboriginal rock carvings, bush walks, creeks and Australian flowers.

This makes a good bicycle ride (if you are fit) and the views over Pittwater to Palm Beach and the Hawkesbury are magnificent. By car it is easier but it is not free because of the National Park entrance fee.

With only 45 minutes drive from the city, this place is a must visit. Located within Ku-ring-gai National Park precinct, this lookout is the main attraction, the view is magnificent.There is a track down to Resolute beach, a little pristine beach looking over Palm beach at the opposite side. You can take a deep or have a picnic here. The trail is rather steep but it is considered easy track. Stop at Akuna Bay for a bite on your way back. Prepare $11 for vehicle or $6 per adult as entrance fee.
