• Irrawong Waterfall is a lovely secluded place in Warriewood 

Thursday, 24 January 2019

If you’re on the Northern Beaches, you already know there’s something pretty special about this area. You may have been born here or perhaps you moved in search of sun and sea. 

Spending your summer at the beach is certainly a summer well spent, get tempted by the thought of stumbling upon something even better…

Angophora Reserve

Experience the giant trees that just go up and up, and you'll feel quite small. Angophora Reserve covers over 18 hectares of urban bushland in Avalon, it has some pretty steep walks but they're incredibly rewarding.

Irrawong Reserve

Have you heard rumours of a waterfall tucked in the heart of Warriewood? It’s true. This little pocket of bushland is unknown to even the most established locals, and you’ll often have the place all to yourself!

The track to the waterfall is easily accessible from Garden Street or Irrawong Road in Warriewood.

The Queenscliff Tunnel 

A secret tunnel carved into the cliff by fishermen back in 1908 who wanted a shortcut between Manly and Freshwater (that’s some serious dedication to beach hopping!). Take care and stay alert as you make your way past the Queenscliff rockpool, over the rocks, and you’ll discover the entrance to The Wormhole – see you on the other side…

(only accessible in calm conditions, be ready for a bit of a rock scramble)

Stony Range

Stony Range sits right next to a main road, but once you are inside you’d never know it! It is famous for its spring floral displays and is the perfect place for a walk or a picnic. 

The main circuit takes approximately 20 minutes to complete and includes an accessible sensory track - where people of all abilities can experience the Australian bush like never before. Signs along the track point to plants you can touch, taste, smell, and look at. There are also side tracks for the energetic and inquisitive.
