Hillside lodge is nestled over Morning Bay in Ku-ring-gai National Park. This hostel is an easy escape from the busy city life of Sydney and ideal for groups. Attractions include bushwalks to lookouts and More Aboriginal engravings, plus from the hostel you can see native birds, wallabies, possums and goannas. Paid Wi-Fi available. Arrive by ferry or water taxi from Church Point and escape the hustle of Sydney in a beautiful location. Book out entire hostel under YHA's exclusive use scheme. Less
