School Holidays 2017: Take a Bush Walk in Our Pittwater Reserves or Picnic With a View
In Pittwater you don't have to go too far to find something to amuse the littlies during school holidays, and all of it is free!
We have bush reserves atop every hill, a coastal walkway for those who like to really stretch their legs, green nooks set aside in streets or to allow estuary and beach access that are perfect for picnics, a lighthouse to visit that's open for tours every Sunday, and all those beaches that have a pool when the surf is rough and Patrolled areas when it looks too nice not to dive on in.
With whales making their way south, bush-flowers blooming everywhere, tree-shaded streets, great libraries with great books, that cry of 'I'm bored' can be easily averted with an adventure in your own backyard. Just don a hat, slap on some sunscreen and pack a water bottle, and some nibblies if wanted, and off you go - get out there and enjoy Pittwater - you are in the best place to have great fun without spending a cent or spend a few and take a ferry ride to those great western Pittwater idylls.
