Moola picnic area - North Ryde
The sounds of the birds singing from trees that rustle with the wind - it won't take you long to relax at this scenic spot right next to Lane Cove River.
Moola picnic area is one of Lane Cove National Park's most popular places. There are plenty of facilities here, including wood and electric barbecues, and, when it's open on weekends and school holidays, you can even pick up an ice-cream or cold drink from the boatshed kiosk.
Once you've enjoyed your picnic or barbecue lunch, you can head off along the Riverside walk to explore the bushland of Lane Cove National Park. If you'd like to travel by water and you didn't bring your own vessel, it's easy to hire a row boat, canoe or pedal boat from the Lane Cove Boatshed.
