Barnetts lookout

"I always take a detour on my way back into Sydney from the north and have my lunch at Barnetts lookout. That view makes stress disappear in a second."

Take time out from the rushed pace of life and take your lunch or coffee down to Barnetts Road Reserve and the Barnetts lookout. The creek looks so peaceful from up here and your troubles just seem to fly away over the valley.

You can enjoy a picnic with a view, plus there's a small playground near the picnic area, so you can bring the kids along for some time in the great outdoors.
