Palm Beach and The National Park are breathtaking. The waves are huge, water warm and the beach is immaculate. The trails are for the most part intermediate but you can find some tougher ones. It was a worthwhile visit for sure.

Great place to escape to outside Sydney. There are many different trails, some easy, others requiring a more strenuous hike. Great views across the bays and peninsulas that dot this region.

West Head Lookout is one of the most beautiful scenic spots I’ve been to! I loved it here as there are so many different trails to choose from, to enjoy a nice walk amongst nature. I am so glad I came here!

On the national parks website, you start this walk at the Sphinx Memorial but I did it with someone who'd done it before and it was better to start at the marina. The walk is 10k, steep in places, with a fair few steps and...More

The tour vendor was Sydney Outback Tours and they provided a great tour. Paul and Jeff provided excellent history of the Aboriginal sites and the boat cruise (piloted by Ron) was simply amazing as we were able to see art in the river sandstone. Best...More

You need a car to reach this park, and a small entrance fee is payable. A favourite with locals, lots of picnic tables and barbecues for public use. Boats can be hired, from Paddle Boats to large Cabin Cruisers. Plenty of trails for bushwalkers, and...More
