If you love horse riding, then it's time to saddle up and head for the hills; Terrey Hills that is. Perimeter trail is a popular horse riding track, nestled in the bush just north of Sydney. There's 21 km of scenic trails designated for horse riding, within Ku-ring-gai Chase and Garigal National Parks. However, you can choose to explore on horse-back, mountain bike or foot along these tracks through iconic Australian bushland.
Passing grass trees and magnificent angophoras, this 7km trail traces the edge of the park. Continue to Long Trail, which leads to Peach Trees lookout with spectacular water views across to Cowan Creek.
There's plenty of walking tracks to further explore the surrounding bushland and waterways. It's only a short drive to Sphinx Memorial to Bobbin Head loop track.
About the region
Located in Sydney's north, Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park combines important history with scenic beauty, making it perfect for school excursions. Bobbin Head is a great place for a family picnic, and parts of the park are ideal for cycling, fishing and bushwalking.
Australia's second-oldest national park, Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park is a recreational favourite for locals and visitors alike. This large park, located in Sydney's north, lets you feel at one with nature without leaving the Sydney metropolitan area. A heritage-listed park, it combines important history with scenic beauty.
Winding creeks and stretches of ocean meet rainforest and eucalypts, rocky cliffs and mangroves. Camp at The Basin or spend your time exploring walking tracks, mountain biking trails, breathtaking lookouts and significant Aboriginal sites. You'll still have plenty of time to discover its marinas, cafes, kiosks and well-equipped picnic areas."
