NSW Sydney - Ku-ring-gai National Park

Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park lies at the place where the Hawkesbury River meets the sea, a tight cluster of secretive, winding creeks, sheltered beaches, hidden coves and wide expanses of deep blue water. Wildflowers grace the sandstone ridges, dense forests cling to the slopes, and mangroves squat on the tidal mudflats.
