With its scenic backdrop of green forest, Durawi picnic area is a fantastic spot for a weekend barbecue in Bents Basin State Conservation Area. It’s a large area, so there’s plenty of room to throw a frisbee, enjoy a game of soccer, or just relax under a tree in the shade.

Choose your spot among the picnic area’s 3 sections, each of them offering picnic tables. If you feel like a swim, make your way to Bents Basin, on the Nepean River, just 100m down the hill.

After lunch, take a walk through the park via the footpath across the short bridge next to the water, and enjoy the views on Caleys lookout track.
