Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park is a shielded area, located 25 km North of Sydney in New South Wales. This is a wonderful place that is different than any other mainstream places. This park covers a massive area including rainforest, coastline, Hawkesbury river and natural bushland. Situated at the southern end of the Hawkesbury River, this national park comprises many hiking trails and a bit of Aboriginal life story placed in rock carvings throughout the park. This park is accessible by palm beach ferry or by car via Mc Carrs Creek Road for the west side. Elvina Bay, Great Mackerel beach, Coasters Retreat and Appletree Bay all are located within the park boundaries. It possesses a great track with a nice stop of taking coffee and lunch.
