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.

A brilliant day for brunch at @cottagepointkiosk then a putter around the river in one of their runabouts. Happy boating! #cottagepointkiosk #kuringgaichasenationalpark #astwFeeling like a ‘king’ being driven around the Hunter Valley by @aatkings on a food and wine experience. But after soo much to eat and drink I actually feel like image two (swipe left) 🐷 The lion statue is at @leogateestatewines and the piggy is @bimbadgen winery. #smilekingsAwesome way to spend a Friday! An @aatkings coach tour to the Hunter Valley visiting @tintillaestate @bimbadgen and @leogateestatewines with delicious cheeses, lunch and wines. And the best part, sitting back in comfort on a small luxury coach and not having to drive! #smilekings #astwWhat an excellent way to see and taste the Hunter Valley, without having to drive - take a day tour from Sydney with @aatkings and you can sit back in a luxury coach en route with an engaging driver and guide and eat and drink to your heart’s content. #smilekingsHere is another colourful piece from #graffiato in Taupo. This is by @micastill and her website says her art will ‘sneak up in your dreams while making you laugh out loud in the light of day.’ The more you look at this image the more you see. If you’d like to see artists at work this year, the Graffiato Street Art Festival runs in Taupo from 26-28 October 2019. @greatlaketaupo #taupo #astwIt’s hard to choose a favourite from the more than 80 murals that brighten the buildings of #taupo, a legacy of their #graffiato festival which sees ten new murals painted each October long weekend, but this one by @owendippie is certainly up there. The detail in this monochrome mural is amazing and it is so striking from a distance. Not sure what the hands are saying, but they are definitely powerful. @lovetauponz @purenewzealand #streetart #lovetaupo
