There are beautiful wildflowers to see, walks on which to explore nature, picnic areas to eat and barbecue in (complete with great barbecue facilities to use), waterways on which to go boating, birds to see and hear. There... More

The walk to Jerusalem Bay is one of my all time favourite activities. It's so beautiful and worth doing. The track from Cowan to Brooklyn is a station to station walk which passes through the Bay and Ku-Ring-Gai Chase National Park. But the bay is also accessible through the park (ask guides). It's a tough walk depending on the direction... More

Stayed a day in Sydney in transit and managed to choose a day when thunderstorms raged through Sydney for my first run in the park. I was surprised at the size of the park and the the trees and birdlife so close to the city. Some of the paths were rugged and some of the paths under water due to... More
