Bakers Flat picnic area

Tucked away in a tranquil riverside setting, Bakers Flat picnic area offers a peaceful spot for a family get-together, in Lane Cove National Park. With a large flat grassy area and wheelchair-accessible facilities, it’s ideal for the kids and large get-togethers of friends and family. Located a short drive from Chatswood, it’s perfect for a quick nature getaway without leaving town.

Take your pick of tables and unpack the picnic hamper, or bring some firewood and spark up a barbecue. Bring the bikes and cycle the nearby trails or launch the canoe for a paddle down the beautiful Lane Cove River. Don’t forget to leave some time to explore the nearby historic cottages.

Keep an eye out for the eastern water dragons that sun themselves along the water’s edge. You might be lucky to spot an echidna that might venture out during the warmer months.
