Departing from the hotel with AEA Luxury Tours we travel out to Sydney’s Northern Suburbs and our first stop of the morning at Ku-ring-gai National Park, approximately 1 hour from your city hotel. This spectacular 14,928-hectare park, 20 to 30km from the city centre, forms Sydney’s northern boundary. It’s a classic mix of sandstone, bushland and water vistas, taking in over 100km of coastline along the southern edge of Broken Bay, where it heads into the Hawkesbury River.
We will enter the park and travel alongside the tranquil waterways, past Akuna Bay Marina home to luxury boats and then on up to West Head Lookout. Here the views from the lookout vantage point are simply breathtaking across Pittwater to Barrenjoey Headland, the Hawkesbury River and beyond to the Pacific Ocean. We then enjoy a delightful Australian Bush morning tea/coffee and refreshments.
From West Head, we then drive a short distance to explore areas with vivid Aboriginal Rock Engravings that are believed to be 1,000’s of years old. Ku-ring-gai National Park has one of the highest concentrations of art sites found in Australia. Primarily these are engravings in the sandstone and relate to hunting and initiation stories from the Guringai people who lived in this area at the time of European settlement in 1788. An explanation of their significance, meaning and how the art was created is given.
Departing the National Park we head down to the spectacular coast enjoying the Pittwater views as we travel through the picturesque suburb of Church Point with its million dollar homes. Wilder and more distant than Sydney’s eastern strands, the Northern Beaches are a must-see.
We arrive at our lunch destination Whale Beach. Here you will enjoy a delicious 2 course lunch at Jonah’s Restaurant – perched on the cliff top overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Jonah’s main dining room offers uninterrupted views of the ocean with floor to ceiling glass windows. This multi award winning restaurant showcases a seasonal menu offering the finest
On conclusion of lunch, we depart Palm Beach and commence our return to the city, heading along the coastline via Curl Curl and Manly beaches. We pause at North Head for stunning views back across the harbour entrance to Sydney city. Then on to Manly Cove and back to the city via Spit Bridge, Balmoral Beach and back roads through the exclusive and quaint north shore suburbs of Mosman, Cremorne and Neutral Bay. Crossing Sydney Harbour Bridge, we arrive back in the city for approximately 5.00PMMAKE A BOOKING ENQUIRY
