Lane Cove National Park

Lane Cove National Park is a large national park nestled between suburbs on the north shore of Sydney. There are various entrances to the park, and lots of trails to be discovered.


Difficulty: Easy-Moderate
Duration: 1-5 hrs
Start: Various points


There is no one route through the park – there are lots of tracks to be discovered.

You will need to study the map to find a starting point that suits you. The tracks vary in difficulty, but overall the level varies from beginner to intermediate, depending on which track you take. In many cases you will be able to take service trails, which is great for beginners. You should note that lots of walkers use the tracks, so always be on the alert.

How to get there:

There are a few train stations within a short ride of the park. Some of them are: Macquarie Park, Epping, Cheltenham, Beecroft, Pennant Hills and Thornleigh.

If you’re driving from the city, cross the Harbour Bridge, and head up the Bradfield Highway, go through the Lane Cove Tunnel onto Epping Road. From Epping Rd head north up Lane Cove Road to Yanko Rd, Doncaster Avenue, the Comenarra Parkway and to the end of Kissing Point Rd, where you can park your car and head into the park.
