Ku-Ring-Gai Chase National Park
The Ku-Ring-Gai Chase National Park is just across Refuge Cove and has so much amazing scenery to offer. There are many walking tracks for you to choose from including the Aboriginal Heritage track, The America Bay track taking you down to the beach, The America Bay Waterfall and the Apple Tree Bay Birrawanna Loop track. The national park is within easy access either by car or water taxi from Refuge Cove.
Sits at Sydney’s most northern point – Barrenjoey Head at Palm Beach. Positioned 91m above sea level, the lighthouse can be reached by a couple of walks. Take the picturesque 1km walking track to the top, which is an easy walk offering outstanding views along the track. Or for those who are keen for a challenging short hike, take the Smugglers track to the top. It now offers a steeper and shorter trek to the lighthouse. Don’t worry though, the walk isn’t as hard as it looks and is well worth the effort.
