With Parks Week starting on Monday 9th March this week’s photo is from Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park, just 25km from the centre of Sydney. Covering 15,000 hectares the park offers both bush and water-based activities as it surrounds Cowan Water (a tributary of the Hawkesbury River) and edges Pittwater. This image is taken above the waterfall in Refuge Bay. You can walk in from West Head Road or come by boat and climb up from the small beach below. The beach is tidal and completely disappears at high tide, so if you come by kayak or small runabout, make sure you secure your craft before climbing the hill. You can hire kayaks and tinnies for exploring or fishing from Cottage Point Kiosk, where you can also get a coffee and delicious light meal. Children will love the displays of stuffed animals at Kalkari discovery Centre near Bobbin Head, where there is a stroller-friendly walk through the bush. Bobbin Head has a mangrove boardwalk, large picnic areas and a huge playground along with a couple of cafes. Hope you can explore a national park near you soon.

Instagram - BriarsTravelBeatWow! Swimming with turtles has to be one of the most amazing experiences. I got to swim alongside this graceful creature at Mackay Reef, just a 30min boat ride from Cape Tribulation in @tropicalnorthqueensland with @oceansafaricapetrib who are so passionate about what they do. Every visit to the Great Barrier Reef contributes to its protection, so plan a visit now. #astw #exploretnq #thisisqueensland #turtleSeriously, I never tire of the views in Queenstown. When asked what’s my favourite travel experience, it’s often the last one. Here in #Queenstown it’s a combination of paragliding (awesome!) and these stunning views! Everywhere you look there is a backdrop of imposing mountains, whose mood changes with the light. Did you realise @stayzau has over 700 places to choose from in #Queenstown many with views like this. #stayztravelbootcamp #queenstownnz #nzmustdo #newzealandSo, so much valuable information imparted @thetravelbootcamp that time to sit, think and plan is important. And what better place to do it than with this view of @queenstownnz. What a place for a conference! #travelbootcamp2019 #thetravelbootcamp #queenstownlive #thetravelbootcamp2019Another moody shot of Lake Wakatipu as the sun illuminates the hills. No matter the weather the scenery steals the show in this town known as the adventure capital of New Zealand. @queenstownnz @purenewzealand #nzmustdo #queenstown #sunset #lakeviews #wakatipuMy pilot Dan pretending to be scared as I take control of steering on my first paraglide flight in #queenstown with @gforceqt Such an amazing feeling soaring on the thermals just like the hawk we saw before take off. @purenewzealand #nzmustdo @queenstownnz #paraglidingQueenstown you are always a show-stopper! I never tire of your beautiful Lake Wakatipu views. #beautiful Daylight saving enabled my to enjoy a lovely evening strolling by the lake. #queenstown #newzealand #lakewakatipu #twilight
