Overview

Sydney Outback offers nature, Aboriginal and coastal tours to Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park, just 45 minutes north of Sydney. Admire the spectacular coastal views from West Head Lookout, enjoy a 3 hour scenic cruise through pristine National Park waterways, and learn about indigenous traditions by visiting ancient Aboriginal rock engraving and sacred sites.

Our aim is to educate all peoples about Aboriginal Dreamtime and creation stories, Aboriginal astronomy, bush foods and medicines, bush craft and survival techniques, and in doing so, leave our guests with a deeper sense of connection with and respect for the Aboriginal culture and its people (see Trip Advisor).
