Please note
  • Remember to take your binoculars if you want to bird watch
  • Ice is available at the nearby Lane Cove Tourist Park
  • It can be a busy place on the weekend, so parking might be limited.
  • If you’re bushwalking in this park, it’s a good idea to bring a topographic map and compass, or a GPS.
  • A current NSW recreational fishing licence is required when fishing in all waters

This charming sheltered picnic area is nestled against the riverbank and has both picnic tables and barbecues, making it a great place to while away an afternoon with the family. Located in a lovely bushland setting, it’s also a great spot for birdwatching along Lane Cove River, with plenty of opportunities to see water dragons.

There are also many opportunities to get active in the surrounding Lane Cove National Park should you want to work off your lunch, including canoeing and bushwalking. Two historic cottages, Schwartz and Bakers, are also nearby.
