Near Quest North Ryde where I was staying is this peaceful, well maintained park in natural splendor. My quiet, uninterrupted walk on a Saturday morning recharged my batteries as I listened to birdsong and admired the ghostly gums. This is the place for walkers and others who desire a little bit of nature close to the city.

When you drive up to the park from any direction you approach via Sydney normal traffic and infrastructure which then opens up to amazing bush land which I am used to travelling... More

We completed an 11 km return walk from De Burgh's Bridge to the weir, walking along the river. The terrain is different on the two sides of the river. It is rocky with caves on one side while on the other the track is flatter and more clearly made. We enjoyed walking through bushland and were pleased to see native... More

I often head into Lane Cove Natiaonal Park for a lunchtime walk. There are some great tracks along the river. Easy going but beautiful surrounds including the occasional Echinda. A real delight.
