  • 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.
  • Nice place, beatiful place. You can either drive or walk there from resolute pucnic area. It could be pretty crowd sometimes. You also to walk down to visit local beaches.
  • Perfect view from the west head lookout. Several traits go to diff beach which is really nice without too many people. BBQ nice and easy.
  • Must visit location in Sydney. Beautiful drive out. Cost is $12 for cars. Take a picnic and soak up the view. Plenty of trail walks enroute to headland. Wonderful bike ride for experienced riders too.
  • The views out from here are simply amazing. and well worth the drive up to the lookout (I guess a hike is possible but there is alot of ground to cover in the park so driving is better to save time).
