Sydney has one of the most beautiful settings in the world, but it’s not just the Harbour that is capable of creating a little magic.
In and around Sydney are stirring headlands, parks large and small (with excellent facilities), undisturbed bushland and slow, peaceful rivers.
There are thousands of places to spread out a picnic blanket, unpack a hamper and soak up the great Australian outdoors, and in Sydney’s Best Picnic Spots, Parks & Reserves you’ll find the very best of them.
Coverage includes the Royal National Park in the south, the Blue Mountains and Wiseman's Ferry in the north.
