Garigal National Park is close to Dee Why Beach. On our return back from Dee Why we stopped by Garigal National Park. One word to describe this park would be sensational. This is for sure a hidden treasure and a place where you want to come just to explore the scenery. It really is stunning with its beautiful water views, large open grassy areas, BBQ’s , amazing nature walks and natural bushland it feels like your miles away from Sydney.
We spent the afternoon at Davidson Park picnic area. You can choose to sit and relax under the shade, go for a swim in the harbour pool or go kayaking and there is heaps of space for family games.
If you’re after a beautiful waterside setting for a great day out with family or friends, Davidson Park picnic area is perfect, and just a short drive from the Sydney CBD.
