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.

The power of nature is an alluring attraction (I visited White Is earlier this year) but is always unpredictable. My blog post may give you a perspective on this regularly visited active volcano.

You can pick up a copy of the Travel Ideas mag in store or find online. They have made four inspirational video clips, one of which I love in particular. Read why in my blog post.

Some friendly locals heading to Church Point in their tinnier kindly offered us a ride, but we were just doing a tourist round trip. #pittwater #boatinglife #tidesreachDogs of Pittwater. This doggie resides next door to @tidesreach and when his owner left without him he waited on the jetty, sometimes climbing into the the pretty red dinghy at the end. #faithfuldog #pittwaterlife #dogsofinsta #tidesreach #dogslifeHow cute are the ferry wharves on Pittwater? This is Carols wharf on Scotland Island. While staying @tidesreach we did a round trip on the ferry from nearby Elvina Bay. So interesting watching life on the water. #tidesreach #pittwater #pittwaterlifeSunset over McCarrs Creek as seen from the deck of @tidesreach on a relaxing weekend getaway. #pittwater #sunset_love #tidesreach
