Lane Cove National Park

Lane Cove National Park is a beautiful pocket of bushland that sits on either side of the peaceful Lane Cove River. It’s in easy reach for Sydneysiders, extending from East Ryde to Pennant Hills and West Chatswood.

There are lots of picnic areas to choose from, including those that offer picnic tables, barbecues, children’s play equipment, flat grassy areas and easy access to walking tracks and places to ride your bike. You’re bound to find a perfect place to picnic for the day.

Hit the walking tracks to explore the park’s bushland, hire a boat from the Lane Cove Boatshed to row along the quiet Lane Cove River or cycle along the park’s roads. There’s a fire trail between Pennant Hills and West Pymble, where you can ride your bike. The park’s historic sites are best explored along the self-guided Heritage walk. Pick up a brochure from the Lane Cove park office. If you’d like to stay overnight in the park, head to Lane Cove River Tourist Park and book a campsite or cabin.

Listen out for the kookaburra’s laughing call, look for colourful lorikeets flitting between the trees and the eastern water dragons slinking around by the river.
