Lane Cove National Park - Chatswood


The picturesque Lane Cove River winds through a peaceful bushland valley within easy reach of the city centre, extending from East Ryde to Wahroonga/Pennant Hills.

The river is the focus of most activities - take a stroll along the bank or hire a row boat. Swimming is not advisable. There are dozens of picnic spots and you can stay overnight in cabins or powered/unpowered camping sites at the nearby award-winning Lane Cove River Tourist Park, which is operated by the NPWS. The northern part of the park is good for bushwalking and bike riding on fire trails.
