Enjoy Lane Cove National Park

Hidden in the middle of urban Sydney, Lane Cove National Park is a beautiful oasis of nature only 3.5km away from Chatswood.

You can enjoy an amazing day out for only $8, from 9am to 6pm. Though there are no shortage of things to see and do within the 372 hectares of bushland, these are our top picks.


Lane Cove National Park is filled with great walking tracks, whether you want an enjoyable stroll or a challenge. The park offers historic sites such as the 140 year old Baker’s Cottage and Aboriginal rock art near Carter’s Creek. Keep your eyes peeled along the way for exciting wildlife such as wallabies, brush turkeys and colourful birds. Not a fan of walking? Bring your bike and cycle along the fire trail instead.


There are over 40 different picnic areas in the park, offering spectacular views onto the river. Many of them are fitted with barbecues, toilets, and tables. Visit the National Parks website to check their features and choose one that’s right for you.


Want to enjoy the best of the scenic Lane Cove River without getting drenched? At the Lane Cove Boat Shed you can hire all sorts of water craft to enjoy with your friends including canoes, kayaks, rowboats and pedal boats. The calm water is perfect for anyone, even if you have never been boating before.


For those of you who love being under the stars, the park provides a range of well maintained accommodation options. Hot showers, a swimming pool and kitchen access are available even if you stay in a tent or caravan. You can also hire a cabin or the luxury tent Tandara.
