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 - BriarsTravelBeatExploring Bathurst Harbour in @tasmanian_boat_charters tender means going where few have gone before. Narrow gorges, shallow bays, secret rivers. It also means going ashore to climb hills, cross button grass plains and marsupial lawns. #southwestnationalpark #bathurstharbour #expeditioncruising #tasmaniaSensational #sunrise was the reward for getting up early on our last morning aboard @tasmanian_boat_charters Odalisque. And what a morning, crisp, cold, stunning. Thanks to @petermarmion for finding the best spots to photograph and @andrewbrucewilson for helping us to capture them. #portdavey #tasmanianboatcharters #photographytour #astwHere is Odalisque, our luxury expedition base while exploring remote Port Davey in Southwest National Park in Tasmania. This custom built, 20 metre expedition vessel takes a maximum of 10 guests along with a crew including expert guide and chef. Owner and skipper Pieter van der Woude based the aluminium design on his previous abalone fishing boat so it can withstand the rigours of the Southern Ocean. It is based on a Mark Ellis Marine design, built by Legend Boat Builders in Western Australia and is powered by a Caterpillar C18 marine engine. #odalisque #expeditioncruise #tasmania @tasmanian_boat_chartersMarsupial lawns, button grass moorlands and tannin-tinted waters, it’s another world in Tasmania’s Southwest Wilderness. And accessing from the water gives yet another perspective. @tasmanian_boat_charters @tasmania #southwestnationalpark
