Enjoy A Picnic With Stunning Views
Banjo Paterson Park's stunning views and facilities make this the perfect weekend BBQ or picnic spot. Located at Punt Road, Gladesville, the park features picnic shelters, free BBQs, toilets, playground and walking track. Views of Glass Bay & Parramatta river also make it suitable for weddings, special events and functions.
Children can ride their scooters, skateboards or bikes on the footpath or play ball games on the grassy areas. Best way to get there is by car - there is a large carpark near the top of the park. You can also get there by public transport. Check Sydney Buses timetables for bus routes.
There are no cafes or kiosks located nearby, so bring snacks, drinks and coffee, however you will find Banjo Paterson Cottage Restaurant, a stunning standstone building dating back to 1830's. The restaurant offers fine dining for corporate functions, weddings or family gatherings. Menu includes modern Australian cuisine as well as vegetarian and children's meals. It is open Tuesday to Friday and Sunday from 12noon and for dinner Tuesday to Saturday from 6.30pm. For a booking call 02 9816 3611 or visit the Banjo Paterson Cottage Restaurant Website
A lot of history around that area if you take a look too, remains of the original convict-built ferry landing are at the end of Punt Road, a little of the original stone guttering exists near the entry to Banjo Patterson Park too .. and more..
