Sydney nature experiences

Surrounded on all sides by ocean, rivers, inlets and thickly forested valleys and hills, Sydney is a gateway to the great outdoors. There's the Royal National Park in the south, the Blue Mountains in the west, Pittwater, Narrabeen Lakes, the Hawkesbury River and Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park in the north, plus a jewel in the centre: Sydney Harbour National Park.
