Not just for the millionaires
Boat Hire Cottage Point Kiosk

Road to Cottage Point, Kuring-gai National Park
On the spur of the moment we decided it was a perfect day to hire a tinny - as luck would have it, Cottage Point Kiosk would have one available in an hour, at 12. We jumped in the car and headed into the Kuring-gai National Park.

Burgers Cottage Point Kiosk

As we didn't have time to pack a lunch, we got takeaway from the kiosk, and feasted on burgers and chips as we puttered around the inlets of Coal & Candle Creek and Cowan Creek.

If you are organised, check the tides prior to booking. Ideally, you want the boat in low tide, so that there are plenty of beaches to choose from, and to picnic on.

If you have the boat for high tide, Hallett's Beach is always a safe bet to pull up for sand and swimming.

The boats are 5 or 6 seaters, fuel and life jackets supplied, and no boat license is required. Rates start at $80 for two hours.

One of the most fabulous offerings of this city is the harbour and waterways, and you don't have to own a boat to get out and explore them. As Rat says in Wind in the Willows "Believe me, my young friend, there is nothing absolutely nothing half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats."
