Berowa Valley National Park
Enjoy a picnic or barbecue……
Join the Great North walk, mess about on a boat, have a barbecue or enjoy scenic views from one of the lookouts in Berowra Valley National Park, just north of Sydney.
This large park occupies the beautiful bushland valley between the suburbs of Hornsby Heights, Thornleigh, Galston, Pennant Hills and Cherrybrook, reaching up to the quiet waters of Berowra Creek.
Covering a 25km stretch of the Great North walk, the park offers more than 70km of walking tracks and fire trails. If you’d rather enjoy nature at a slower pace, enjoy a picnic or barbecue at Crosslands Reserve, so close to the suburbs and yet so far from the speed of daily life. Berowra Creek is a great spot for some canoeing or kayaking, and there are some good places to dangle your line overboard – you might be lucky enough to catch some lunch.
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.
Crosslands Reserve is open 8am to 7.30pm during daylight savings and 9am to 5pm the rest of the year
Barnetts Road Reserve and the lookout is closed from sunset to sunrise
