Know More about this tour

After morning pickup from your Sydney hotel, head north across Sydney harbour bridge to reach Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park, located just 45 minutes drive from central Sydney. Your guide points out the landmarks you pass on the way to your first stop, West Head lookout.

From the lookout, take in incredible views of Broken Bay, Pittwater and the historic sandstone lighthouse on Barrenjoey Headland. Gazing across Broken Bay, see the beaches of the central coast and Lion Island, which shelters the largest population of little penguins in the Sydney area. Hear stories about shipwrecks, pirates, smugglers, escaped convicts and the park’s importance during World War II.

You'll also meet with a guide who provides interpretation of Aboriginal customs and Dreamtime stories. Learn about the Guringai people who originally lived in this area during a guided tour of a remote Aboriginal heritage site, which holds some of the most important rock carvings in Australia.

Continue to Akuna Bay where you board a 50-foot catamaran for a 3-hour cruise through the park's remote waterways. Your guide shows you exotic birds and marine life, Aboriginal heritage sites that are only visible from the water and one of Sydney’s most inaccessible waterfalls. Enjoy a 1-hour on-board cultural presentation, partake in hands-on demonstrations of the didgeridoo, spears, woomera (spear-throwing device), fire making and other Aboriginal skills.

For lunch, enjoy typical Australian fare that features bush tucker flavors. Your tour also offers morning and afternoon tea and samples of favorite Aussie snacks.

At the end of an exhilarating full-day tour, your guide returns you to your hotel.
