National parks

Ku-ring-gai is bound by Garigal National Park in the east, Lane Cove National Park in the west and Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park in the north.

Council is directly responsible for 1,150 hectares of bushland. We manage policies and strategies as well as operating programs to ensure our bushlands and waterways – and the flora and fauna that live in them – are protected.

Garigal National Park

Enjoy beautiful bush scenery, water views and rich heritage. Davidson Park on the northside of Middle Harbour near Roseville Bridge is a popular spot for picnics, boating and fishing. Garigal National Park

Lane Cove National Park

The Lane Cove river winds through a peaceful bushland valley at the park. While swimming is not advisable, there’s still plenty to do – why not take a stroll along the bank or hire a row boat? You can also stay overnight at Lane Cove River Tourist Park. Lane Cove National Park

Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park 

Its waterways are its greatest asset, with sunken river valleys, tree-covered headlands, wild estuaries and sheltered coves. On weekends you’ll find houseboats, yachts, cruisers, dinghies and even canoes making their way through the clear waters. The park is also home to spectacular lookouts, including Barrenjoey Lighthouse. Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park
