A little slice of heaven lies just north of Roseville Bridge, on the shores of Middle Harbour Creek.

Fear not that sharks may be cruising by whilst you picnic, there’s a small beach with a netted swimming area.  Very handy for the littlies.

Davidson Park Picnic Area is part of  Garigal National Park and so you need to pay for entry to the National Park.

On public holidays this picnic spot can become just a bit too popular, it can be murder to park although there’s always a spot to spread your picnic rug.

Read info about walks here.

See below for a Google map.


I’ll catch you there one sunny Sydney summer’s day.  I’ll be the one lying under the shade of a beautiful tree whilst the kids run wild… in my dreams!

Where’s your favourite picnic spot?  Do you have any top tips on places that DON’T get too crowded on public holidays??

    I can’t believe I’ve never been there Seana – I will have to check it out with the boys over the holidays. Under a tree with a book – right up my alley! I’ll look out for you 🙂

      It’s a handy spot and I’ve had a good time there as the kids have run wild, cars are not close and you can relax a bit. Lovely shady trees. I haven’t done any of the walks, so would love to do that and … one day… must get a kayak and paddle up the river… would be gorgeous.
