A gorgeous natural walk through bushland is a tonic for the soul, and trails that include a playground for the kids are the perfect outing for the whole family. Here are some of our favourite natural adventures, complete with playgrounds.


1. Bobbin Head Playground and Walk, Ku-Ring-Gai Chase National Park

The Ku-Ring-Gai Chase is a wonderland of things to do for kids, with a playground smack in the middle of winding bush tracks, a waterside wharf with boat hire available, canoeing, fishing and gorgeous picnic spots.

The area features barbecues, picnic tables, shelters and plenty of green space for an impromptu frisbee session or a spot of cricket. There’s also a children’s playground that’s sure to be a hit with kids and you can pick up a coffee at the Bobbin Head Inn Café or tuck into some beautiful Mediterranean cuisine at Galley Foods Restaurant and Kiosk.

  • Best features: The playground is a huge drawcard, and while you’re there, try Bobbin Head picnic area for a barbecue or a spot of fishing, or go canoeing or hire a paddle boat
  • Address: Sydney North (Bobbin Inn, Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park)

    Hallstrom Park near Willoughby Leisure Centre is a lovely park too for littlies. There are great bike tracks through the Flat Rock Park. Visit before the Bush is destroyed and poisoned as the old tip is dug up, Wildlife is killed and trees knocked down. Please voice your concern before it’s too late.
