Drive a convertible like a rockstar along the scenic drive to… West Head Lookout
One of the most remarkable things about Sydney is that you don’t have to travel very far from the city to feel like you’re in the middle of nowhere. Locate a snazzy Uber Carshare car near you and point it just 25km north of the CBD, and you’ll find yourself on Mona Vale Road and the southern end of the Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park. Following McCarrs Creek Road will bring you to the first natural wonder on your trip, Upper Gledhill Falls. Taking a left onto West Head Road, you’ll head deeper into the park, through the banksias and red gums until you reach the remote loop at the tip of the peninsula with some gorgeous views of Pittwater and Barrenjoey Head. This national park holds many exceptional sites where millennia-old Indigenous artworks reveal the ancient cultural story of this corner of Greater Sydney. Park up and follow the Red Hands Cave track to find Aboriginal ochre rock paintings created by the Garrigal people of this area over hundreds of years.
