With world class lookouts, countless significant indigenous sites, and too many tracks to name, Ku-Ring-Gai is a smorgasbord of adventures. With Pittwater Harbour to the east, Hawkesbury river to the north, and Cowan Creek to the west, there are plenty of opportunities to swim in the crystal clear waters. Camp at the famous Basin Campground to fully experience everything this National Park has to offer. A fabulous part of our Pittwater Boat Day Tour
Jaw dropping views of Broken Bay, (where the Hawkesbury meets the ocean) make this a walk to remember. Starting at Little Wobby (or Rhino beach if that's where we've been camping), it changes name after Patonga, but the look outs only get better. Finish with a lovely meal in Pearl Beach, and we'll take you right back to where you need to be. An optional part of our Cowan Creek Boat Day Tour.
A relatively short and accessible walk, but the views make it almost unmissable. Sandwiched between Pittwater on the west, and the vast Pacific Ocean to the East, you can look back at the peninsular to marvel at the two environments, while trying to spot a whale making its way up the coast. With an historic lighthouse, and a funky waterfront cafe waiting at the end, there's plenty to experience on this trip. A great way to finish the Pittwater Boat Day.
The track here hugs the water line of the gorgeous Cowan Creek. Easily accessible from the back of St Ives, it is a nice short hike down the side of the valley, and an easy walk to the famous picnic areas of Bobbin Head. Here you can hop in a kayak to continue your trip down river, or keep hiking back up the short and steep hill to Berowra.
Boasting some of the most impressive views of the Hawkesbury, Popran remains largely underrated, because it can be tricky to get to if you don't know the right routes. But with shipwrecks, waterfalls, and secret pools, it's one of our favourites. Best done as part of our Hawkesbury Kayak, Boat, or Overnight Adventures
Starting at Thornleigh, Galston Gorge, or Crosslands, there's nearly 40 km of perfect trail here, and plenty of ways to do it. With train, road, and kayak options, and waterside restaurants half-way, this is an accessible adventure with gorgeous views along the whole way.
