The Ingleside NSW area is a popular tourist destination for its natural beauty and proximity to Sydney. The following are some of the most popular attractions in the neighbourhood:
Terrey Hills Oval
This park is known for its intimate cricket ground and the panoramic views of Sydney’s northern suburbs. This is the perfect venue for picnics, barbecues or just watching a game of cricket.
This zoo features a huge range of Australian animals, including elephants, koalas, kangaroos and dingoes – as well as more exotic creatures like lions or tigers. This is the perfect place to spend a day with kids, and it’s also open later at night for adults!
Lady Carrington Drive
This picturesque drive runs past some of Sydney’s most expensive real estate. At certain times of year, you might catch an impressive display of autumn colours in this area – or even see kangaroos grazing in their natural habitat.
This beach is popular with tourists because of the nearby cafes and restaurants – or for just taking a walk on the sand, to take in some fresh sea air.
You can see this small bay from Lady Carrington Drive; if you’re feeling adventurous, you might want to go down there at low tide so that you can explore its hidden coves by foot!
This reserve is known for its large gum trees and secluded spots, making it the perfect place to watch a sunset. It’s also a good spot for birdwatching because it’s home to various types of lorikeets, cockatoos and kookaburras.
This blowhole is known for its impressive geology: when waves hit the rocks below, they create a powerful jet that shoots water over 30 metres in the air! It’s worth timing your visit so you can see this natural wonder while watching the sunset from nearby Kiama Harbour – especially if you’re lucky enough to be there during stormy weather.
The most popular attraction at Avalon Beach is arguably The Rock Pool: an unusual rock formation just off the beach that creates another world beneath sea level (and catches some amazing sunsets)!
Located near the beach, this park has impressive views of Sydney’s harbour. It also includes a children’s playground and picnic areas – making it great for families with kids who want to explore some greenery while they are in Ingleside!
Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park
This park offers a range of different trails – from short walks to long and strenuous hikes. You’ll find everything from rainforest, sandstone cliffs and coastal views in this area!
