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 - BriarsTravelBeatOnly three families lived in Bathurst Harbour, now part of Southwest National Park. And only one person lived there for almost 50 years. I’ve read about Deny King, so it was thrilling to see where he and his family lived while exploring with @tasmanian_boat_charters. This is Deny’s pontoon up Moth Creek. #boatinghistory #discovertasmaniaThis may be my favourite pic of Bathurst Harbour, a harbour within a harbour at Port Davey in Southwest National Park, Tasmania. These are the Celery Top Islands highlighted by morning warmth against the backdrop of Mount Rugby (I think). Views like this are only possible from the water. Thanks to boutique expedition cruise @tasmanian_boat_charters expert guide @petermarmion and photographer @andrewbrucewilson for taking us out in the tinny to get these #mistymorning shots. #tasmaniaKnow what this plant is? I certainly didn’t recognise it. It’s a baby Huon Pine grabbing a foothold amongst the quartzite cliffs of remote Davey Gorge in @tasmania Southwest National Park. You could spend several days walking in here, or fly in as I did with @paraviontas as part of a boutique cruise with @tasmanian_boat_charters and get escorted to hidden spots like this with expert guides. Tasmania #nzhtravelIt’s taken me a while to get to Port Davey in #tasmainia but it’s been worth the wait! Cocooned inside Southwest National Park at the bottom of Tassie this huge waterway surrounded by wilderness would take weeks to explore, but I saw an amazing amount in four days aboard @tasmanian_boat_charters vessel Odalisque. With weather changing hourly, we captured some moody shots, thanks to photographer @andrewbrucewilson who helped us capture the light. #portdavey #expeditioncruise @tasmaniaparks @nzhtravel
