Book Now - Private Ku-ring-gai With a Twist

After crossing the Harbour Bridge we will pass through the leafy northern suburbs and it is not long before we arrive at the Ku-ring-gai National Park. Our first stop is at a National Parks Wildlife Rescue Centre. Here we have a chance to see some injured and recovering native animals up close. We will see the interpretation centre and take a walk through the grounds where we may spot some kangaroos, Emus and other wildlife. Continuing on we arrive on the banks of the Hawkesbury River where we take a walk along an elevated boardwalk across native mangroves, the breeding and cleaning system for the river. Here we have a chance to spot more wildlife as we stroll amongst the pristine bushland. Enjoy some premium coffee and fresh muffins at the end of your walk. Rejoining the vehicle we drive across to the Eastern side of the Park towards West Head. The road narrows as we wind our way through this very unique part of Sydney’s North. On our way to West Head we stop off to view some Aboriginal Rock Carvings. A short walk through the bush leads us to a pristine escarpment awash with carvings. This area was a sacred sight for the local Garyngal people and their rock carvings tell their story. We continue on to West Head Look Out for amazing sweeping views of Barennjoey, Pittwater and the Northern beaches. You will not be disappointed by this incredible area.

Akuna Bay is home to dozens of magnificent yachts and boats and we will enjoy the views over lunch. It won’t be long before our own private cruiser docks at the marina. We now board our private boat for a 2 hour cruise to the village of Brooklyn. The Hawkesbury River is a pristine water way. As we cruise along the river enjoy the magnificent views and relax with a glass of wine or a cold beer. Your skipper will point out places of interest as we meander past remote villages and oyster farms. When you arrive at Brooklyn your guide will be there to meet you for your transfer back to Sydney, arriving around 5.30pm.

Average Duration: 8 Hours
