Within a stone’s throw of Sydney's central business district, enjoy a quick and easy weekend getaway with the family while enjoying the great outdoors at Lane Cove National Park. Short and steep, Fiddens Wharf walking track, near West Killara, leads to a large sports oval fringed by beautiful bushland. It’s an ideal destination for active families and groups looking for a large open playing field for ball games and fitness.
This clearly signposted track leads to Fiddens Wharf Oval, where there’s plenty of space for the kids to kick a ball around or enjoy a family game of cricket. If you’ve worked up an appetite, don’t forget a picnic basket and enjoy a leisurely lunch in a shady spot.
If you’ve still got energy to burn, follow the track to Fiddens Wharf on the tranquil Lane Cove River. Keen bushwalkers can also join the iconic Great North Walk from here.
