Bush Walking in Sydney

Back in Sydney for the Wallabies/All Blacks Bledisloe Cup/Tri-Nations match (Australia 18 New Zealand 19), we were stuck for a place to park the campervan, and still have decent access to the stadium. We struck it spot on with the Lane Cove River Tourist Park. It is situated in the Lane Cove National Park, fifteen minutes from the Sydney CBD. And being right in the near suburbs, there was a bus to the ANZ Stadium (Sydney Olympic Park) that stopped right out side. Two birds with one park.

We had a great little 10k bush walk around the Lane Cove River--it started out as a quick look-see and turned into a three hour affair. It is an easy trip through varied terrain and woodlands. The local fauna (at least around the caravan park) is a little on the tame side. The park offers an "Animals of the Night" tour, and it is as likely to have the critters find you as it is to have to look too hard for them. By day the birds are abundant: not obnoxious, just around.

Take a day and explore, especially if you won't be able to get out of the city into the Blue Mountains.
