This much-loved camping destination is great for a day trip and offers well-maintained barbecues in beautiful national park surrounds.
The barbies at Blackwattle Bay are brand spanking new. Enjoy views of the ANZAC Bridge while you sizzle.
Beachside barbecuing followed by a large-scale backyard cricket session is a perfect proposition whatever the season.
This is one of the city's most popular barbecue locations, and luckily its 360-hectare expanse means that even the biggest crowd can be accommodated for a relaxing parkland lunch.
Just past the Manly Beach crowds is a smaller, more scenic beach with six barbecues and a great north-facing view.
