Sydney has one of the most beautiful settings in the world, but its not just the Harbour that is capable of creating a little magic. In and around Sydney are stirring headlands, parks large and small (with excellent facilities), undisturbed bushland and slow, peaceful rivers. There are thousands of places to spread out a picnic blanket, unpack a hamper and soak up the great Australian outdoors, and in Sydneys Best Picnic Spots, Parks & Reserves youll find the very best of them. Coverage includes the Royal National Park in the south, the Blue Mountains and Wisemans Ferry in the north.
