Palm Beach

Barrenjoey Lighthouse & the Basin Lagoon

Spectacular views await at the top of Barrenjoey peninsular where smugglers of old sailed in through Sydney’s backdoor with their bounty bound for the city. Visit the historic lighthouse, before we ferry across the harbour to the Basin to meet some very cute and extremely adorable furry friends! We’ll even set up a picnic so you can sit back and relax while your new found crush hops around.

Out of the City

We head north and out of the city to the northern beaches after all travellers have been picked up. Along the way your guide will give you details of the day’s itinerary, what to expect, and crack a few jokes. So sit back and relax while we play some classic Aussie tunes and take you on an incredible adventure along the Australian coast.

The Lighthouse and Lookout.

As we arrive at Palm beach we will take a quick look at the iconic spots of Australia’s most famous soap opera “Home and Away”. Get ready to walk up to the lighthouse for an incredible 360 view of the coast and Ku-Ring-Gai National Park. Here you will see where the Pacific Ocean meets the Australian mainland.

Ferry to Ku-Ring-Gai National Park

After the lighthouse we will take a leisurely ferry across the spectacular harbour to the National Park. Get ready to meet some very furry and cute wallabies in this beautiful camp ground. If you are extra nice they will come up to you for a closer look.


The Basin Lagoon

Hop into your swimmers and take a dip in the refreshing waters of the Basin Lagoon while we set up a picnic for you. Grab a Frisbee or cricket bat and just have fun. Enjoy a delicious lunch served out for you on the camp grounds with little wallabies by your side. If you are feeling energetic why not hike up to the Basin trail lookout to check out the rest of the National Park.

Heading Home

After a full day at Palm Beach we will catch the ferry back before heading home. Share your stories, social media contacts, and photos with your new and wonderful friends.
