We took the ferry from church point to Scotland island to explore and go for a walk.
The island is residential and some what run down. Due to vast bush land and steep terrain the views are not looking out on the water as we had expected.
Once we had walked the entire island in 40 min we then had a 40 min wait for the hourly ferry return.
The surrounds of Scotland Island (church point) are very pretty and well worth a visit but I would not recommend getting off the ferry at Scotland Island. There is nothing for tourists.

The whole river area is gorgeous. Very untouristy and laid back. The Brooklyn area has a number of small cafés and the local ferry to Dangar is enough to make it worth your while even if you aren't visiting friends.

A get out of town place, the whole of the Pittwater area is very beautiful, take in Palm Beach, Whale Beach and the light house. Johanna's Restuarant is great, expensive but you could visit the bar.
