This tour was incredible, and I have since recommended it to soo many others! My friends and I love adventuring and kayaking, and this tour was the perfect mix. The walk and view over at Carrawong was stunning and was accompanied with some great local knowledge. Thanks for such a great day!

Whale Beach

Beach located on Sydney's northern peninsula.

Reviewed By Craig M - Sydney, Australia

Intended on visiting Palm Beach area one day but when we arrived we were deterred by the amount of people about. Decided to drive 10 minutes or so south, down the windy cliff face, to Whale Beach.
Vey picturesque Beach with clean sand and water. Good rockpool at the Beaches end, plenty of natural shading and picnic/laying down spaces for relaxation.
Parking fees apply, about $4 per hr. And yes, rangers patrol the area! Limited food outlets in the immediate area which I found to be pricey with small servings. On busier days, prepare to be patient for your order! I would personally take your own food/drink!
Would recommend and return albeit a fair drive from many parts of suburban Sydney.

Hawkesbury River Kayaks

Hawkesbury River Kayaks has a small fleet of single and double kayaks for hire, perfectly suited to exploring the waters and inlets of the Hawkesbury River. Spend just a few hours paddling around Dangar Island, or take a weekend to travel upstream and camp at a secluded beach. Explore beautiful Jerusalem Bay, picnic on one of many small Beaches, or have lunch at picturesque Cottage Point.

We were given great maps and options on where to go in our double kayak to get the most of the Hawkesbury River. Information and safety briefing was great. We had such an amazing time. Beaches are beautiful and secluded. Thanks heaps, we will be returning!

Cinema Paradiso

Reviewed By Euan R - Ettalong Beach, Australia

This is a wonderful complex of 6 seperate cinemas.
All themed on an Italian theme, frescos, wall art, even ceiling art throughout, I think of it as a little like wandering around Sienna.
All current movies ,restaurants in same building offering dine and movie packages, a terrific attraction for Ettalong

Mona Vale Beach

Reviewed By AfricaExpeditionOne

Great beach.
Lovely for walks.
Beware of swimming and Surfing.
There are strong currents and hidden sandbanks.
Out son broke he’s neck Surfing here during the winter this year. Dived off he’s surf board and hit a shallow sandbank with he’s head.

Mount Ettalong Lookout

Reviewed By Paul L - Cape Paterson, Australia

This lookout has some really nice views of the bay, you can see Lion Island from some vantage points, you can see across to Bouddi National Park, you can see the layout of Umina and Ettalong and their attendant Beaches and all within a few minutes drive of Umina.
You have to be ready and waiting for the turn off as it is easy to go cruising past and then you can park your car by the large tank. In years gone by you could drive right out towards the lookout itself. I seem to recall it was somewhat of a venue for 'parking' but that could be the ravages of time on my addled memory banks.
Now however the local council is saving itself the expense of maintaining the road and parking bays - or saving itself cleaning up after the visitors - by having the road closed. The walk isn't very far but certainly not friendly to less mobile folks.
Irrespective of all that if you are a tourist in the area then it's not a bad little spot to check out.

Bilgola Beach

Reviewed By NickfromOz - Sydney Australia

Bilgola Beach is located on the Palm Beach Peninsular about 30miles from Sydney CBD. Well worth a visit for its special white sanded beach and views. its a fairly secluded beach during winter but crowded during the summer and car parking is at a premium. The water can be quite dangerous for some swimmers due to rip currents .

Barrenjoey Lighthouse

Reviewed By jayneeveringham - Sydney, Australia

This is a great walk. We went early in the morning to avoid the heat and it was lovely. It’s quite steep so I recommend taking a water bottle but the views to the central coast, out over Pittwater and Palm Beach are breath taking. It takes about 30 minutes with moderate fitness to get to the lighthouse.
