Ku Ring Gai Chase National Park

Located in the west of Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park, Bobbin Head is a large area offering lots of attractions and facilities. As well as being a great place to walk, paddle or go fishing, Bobbin Head is the perfect waterfront picnic spot.

The area features barbecues, picnic tables, shelters and plenty of green space.

Visit ​the Empire Marina to hire a run-a-bout with ​a fishing licence, or follow any of the number of walking tracks and collect maps and brochures from the Bobbin Head Information Centre. 

Check into some ​welcome refreshments at ​the Waterside Bistro.​ You can also purchase some fish food and amuse yourself feeding the myriad of bream circling around underwater.

There are lots of birds to be seen like this Black-faced Cuckoo shrike, we will show you a few.

A cute little Masked Lapwing chick was running around.

We saw a Figbird for the first time here.

Some beautiful flowers to be seen as well like this Grevillea punicia or more commonly called a spider Grevillea.

As well as a Green bottlebrush.

Stroll the mangrove boardwalk behind the picnic area​ to see the rock formations and mangrove crabs. This rock formation looks though there is a face looking at you.

Some of the mangrove crabs or also known as Semaphore crabs. Here is a purple one trying to look big and tough.

And some daintier red semaphore crabs.
