Sydney - Day Trips from Sydney (PDF Chapter)
This is the Day Trips from Sydney chapter from Lonely Planet’s Sydney guide-book.
Want to escape the city? This chapter includes the very best excursions from Sydney and they can each be completed in a day. Must-sees include Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park and Northern Beaches.
- right on Sydney’s northern fringes, spectacular Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park exempli-fies this part of the state’s natural beauty
- wilder and more distant than Sydney’s eastern strands, the Northern Beaches are a must-see, especially for surfers. Although you’ll most likely approach them as a day trip, they’re very much part of the city.
- with stunning natural beauty, the Blue Mountains have huge eucalypts that form a dense canopy across the landscape of deep, often inaccessible, valleys and chiselled sand-stone outcrops
Coverage includes: Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park, Northern Beaches, Blue Mountains, Parramatta, Royal National Park.
