Really nice walk around the lake. The walk is well sign-posted with stops for water. Can walk the dog on a lead. We will do it again and take some food as there are picnic / BBQ places as well

Hi, yes it is possible to ride a bike. Quite popular! its about nine kilometres around. Many suitable places to park a car. Park in the carpark on pittwater Rd an then you are close to coffee shops and cafes afterwards
Hi, I have a Narrabeen Lagoon Trail question. We are from Interstate and attending a sporting event at Sydney Academy of Sport for a week in late September. We will be relying on public transport for our visit however have been told buses don't go directly to the Sydney Academy of Sport. We originally were told we could walk from the bus stop (Pittwater near Waterloo St) along the trail and onto Academy of Sport grounds however someone else has advised us the Academy of Sport grounds are not accessible from the trail. Could someone please advise if it is / isn't possible. Thanks so much for your help
