  • I'm not sure if I've ever been here before but I was very impressed. It's a long drive through the bush and the national park entry fee is $12, but with a sealed road it's still quite easy to get to, ...  more »

  • West Head Lookout and the surrounding walking tracks are perfect for a day out in nature. West head gives picturesque views of Pittwater, Lion Island, and the Central Coast. There are Aboriginal heritage areas and cave paintings along some of the paths, and a number of secluded sandy beaches. There's a park fee of $12. Or you can get an annual pass to all national parks for $60. The walks are generally moderate in difficulty, but some are steep with steps and narrow paths. You can choose shorter or longer walks, and the difficulty. There is information and signage on the tracks, and toilets at a stop about 300 metres before the lookout. Remember to bring lots of water, good walking shoes and sun protection.
  • Great national park for bringing international guests. With lots of hiking tracks, view points, history and facilities it wont disappoint. Its also a fantastic spot to do some cycling, with decent roads and a good amount of climbing. Plus a cafe stop on the way back. Always love coming here. Hows the serenity.
  • Paradise on earth 1. Great drive from city 2. Mesmerizing views 3. New world away from traffic 4. Public transport not available 5. Restroom facility available
  • Gorgeous lookout and access to a couple of walks on the headland. The view of Palm Beach is gorgeous. Good parking or for the note active walk in from the nearby Resolute picnic area which is about a 1.6km round trip through beautiful bushland down hill.
  • Beautiful lookout with benches and shade. An easy 20 mins downhill walk from Resolute picnic area to get to the lookout. But the way back uphill is certainly more difficult. Probably better to enjoy the trails on cooler days than summer days.

Where to stay in Sydney

Sydney offers visitors hundreds of lodging options in its central area, with choices suitable for most budgets. As expected in a major tourist destination, harbor views play a major role in determining room prices. Expect to pay more for ocean-view suites, especially if you visit at the peak of the tourist season or around big city events. If you don't need to stay in the center of Sydney, consider budget-friendly hotels near the airport, or look for smaller roadside motels in the city's South West neighborhood.
