Ku-ring-gai Chase offers a rich variety of things to see and do in a natural setting adjacent to Sydney's northern suburbs. West Head, in the park's north-east, has some of Sydney's best water views, while Bobbin Head, on the western side, is well known for its waterways, picnic areas and walking tracks.
Walking tracks reveal rugged scenery, quiet beaches and a wealth of wildflowers and birdlife. There are several picnic areas, some providing gas and electric barbecues, but no open fires are permitted within the park. Larger picnic shelters at Bobbin Head can be booked through the Sydney North Region Information Centre. You can see Aboriginal rock art on The Basin, Echidna and Red Hand tracks.
