I strolled and took photos. Others walked, jogged, ran and cycled. Other folks even drove. Full blown nature 10km from Sydney CBD. Awesome. The tourist park is brilliant place for all sorts of accommodation.

Started with a wonderful breakfast at the cafe. Enjoyed a lovely walk on a perfect day. Great walks, loved seeing the boats on the water. Perfect spot for families.

Another great day located in the heart of Sydney. Parking is abundant as are the many walk trails and picnic spots. Take a hat and camera and enjoy the day.

We came here on public transport and easily walked into the park and hiked for a couple of hours. The views of the river were stunning. This place would be fantastic for a nice bbq. Our walk was a wonderful experience. One can see pictures...More

Lovely natural parkland/bush with excellent picnic nooks with seats and fireplace/bar-b-q. Eight dollar charge to enter and drive through is a discouragement for repeated visits

Nice park with a cool river. It is well-maintained and clean. Lots of open grassy area as well as bushland. There are facilities to hire boats. Also barbecues are scattered throughout. Awesome winding roads for riding. Just watch out for cyclists and other pedestrians

This park is lovely to walk in, you can choose to do longer or shorter bush walks, or cycle even. Its a hidden gem and very secluded
