5 of the best spots to enjoy a picnic in and around Sydney

As part of the Australia group tour holidays provided by us here at Distant Journeys, you’ll be able to enjoy a Freedom Day in the wonderful city of Sydney, allowing you to do as you wish and uncover what the city has to offer at your own pace. One of the great ways that you can appreciate the city and its beauty is with a relaxing picnic in one of Sydney’s several beautiful parks and nature spots. We’ve picked just five of the best in and around Sydney for your enjoyment.

Clifton Gardens

Situated in the stunning Sydney Harbour National Park found a short distance from the Sydney metro zone, Clifton Gardens is not only home to a number of beautiful beaches and wharves but is also a perfect spot for fishing. As well as the beaches, there are also grassy areas and bushlands on offer, for those who are undecided about where exactly to base their picnics. Walking tracks surround the gardens, while electric barbecues are conveniently located throughout.

Cremorne Point Reserve

Located on the outskirts of the city, picnics at Cremorne Point Reserve offer up truly unrivalled views of the harbour and of the city, with plenty going on at the Reserve itself. If you fancy a dip, there’s a free saltwater pool to cool off in, and there is a walking track allowing you to wander around the reserve.

  • The organisation and communication were first class. The flexibility in travelling to the destination was impressive and the hotels where we stayed  in were all of a good standard. Our Coach was driven by Ken, who was a character and nothing was too much for him.

  • We both enjoyed the Magnificent New Zealand holiday immensely. The Coach Driver/Tour Guide was excellent and the hotels were really comfortable. The holiday was extremely good value and I would recommend it to anyone waning to taste the Antipodean holiday experience.
