This campsite is located in Ku-Ring-Gai Chase National Park

One of the state’s best-loved and most visited parks, Ku-ring-gai Chase preserves an important stretch of natural bushland as well as the lower reaches of the Hawkesbury River and a number of its tributaries. This is a stunning recreational area, and it’s only 30 km north of Sydney’s bustling city centre. Bookings are essential for the camping area.
