Driving Around Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park

Sunset Over the Hawkesbury River: Sunset Over the Hawkesbury River

On the weekend I went for a drive around Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park, stopping frequently to take pictures of great views and to hike down some short tracks near the road. It’s amazing how far out in the bush the park can feel even though it is still within the Sydney metropolitan area. Towards the end of the day, we came across a Wallaby near West Head lookout – the first wild wallaby I have seen in the Sydney area. We then saw a nice sunset over the Hawkesbury River near West Head Road
