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.

I've been coming here with my children for years and love the birdlife in the bush as well as the rock formations and waterfalls.

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.

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
