It is a lovely mix of bushland, spectacular water features and classic sandstone. So if you are looking for an outdoor experience that is both exhilarating and insightful, look no further than this beautiful park.

The park’s name is thought to have been inspired by its original inhabitants, the traditional Guringai community. A closer look at the park’s historical sites reveals the vibrant art and heritage of traditional communities across more than 800 locations.

Some attractions include intricate patterns in the cave art and thought-provoking rock paintings. If this sounds fascinating, make your way to the Kalkari Discovery Centre. Here, you will find displays of Aboriginal culture alongside some of Australia’s unique fauna. In addition, you can take a self-guided walk that is perfect for nature lovers. Look out for the different species you will likely come across, including swamp wallabies, native ducks, and bush turkeys.

A trip to Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park is incomplete without visiting the lookout points that offer glorious views of the park’s attractions, including Broken Bay, Cowan Creek and Pittwater. Visit the heritage-listed Barrenjoey Lighthouse in Palm Beach. Entry is free, and guided tours are every Sunday.

Bobbin Head is also a beautiful picnic area where families can enjoy barbecues, hire a paddle boat, and even go fishing. Make bookings for The Pavillion and The Station, two of the sheltered picnic areas at the park.
