Swimming, Views, BBQs and a Playground
Echo Point Park
Echo Point Park

This wonderful park has to be one of Sydney's best kept secrets. Leafy and quiet, romantic and beautiful with views and lovely little swimming areas. It is quite hilly and there are stairs, but this only adds to the romance I think.

The park is set across three levels. The upper level has a wonderful grassy area with tables, gardens and BBQs and a toilet block (albeit not the newest one you've ever seen). Up here there are wonderful water glimpses and lots of grassy spots to set up a picnic. This area can also be booked for functions and photos.

From the top section you can access both the middle and lower levels via a series of paths and stairs. You can also head down some stairs to the marina - we were unfortunately there at high tide so were unable to access the beach to head across to the marina. There is however a cafe here, Echo on the Marina Cafe, which is a great place to grab a coffee and lunch.

Boat Envy!

The second level is great for kids - it has a cute boat shaped playground and some seating for parents. It is easily accessed via the upper level (via a paved walkway), so it is still close to the toilet block (if required).

The lower level is a great function area. It is at water level so has wonderful views and there are electric BBQs and a large undercover seating area.

View from the Lower Level

The lower level is also the easiest place to access swimming spots. There is a path that goes from the picnic spot along the waterline - it is a little bit rocky in places and there are some stairs but I managed it ok with a toddler and little one (in a carrier). The water here is lovely and clean and with barely a wave it is a great spot for kids. There are quiet a few different places to pick from to go for a dip.

What an Amazing Swimming Spot



You can also head off on the Two Creek Track from the lower picnic area. If you walk along Two Creek Track, keep an eye out for the location of the old Roseville Baths - what a pity they were demolished due to pollution many years ago.

You can find Echo Point Park on Babbage Road, Roseville. Just keep driving until you see a car park. The car park will bring you to the upper level, if you continue on for a little while you will come to an Echo Point Park sign (shown at top of this article) which is the entry to the middle area, and further on is the entry point to the lower area.

There is always plenty of parking, either in the car park or on the road. Parking and entry to the park is free.

I really wouldn't suggest swimming in this area, its a known breeding spot for sharks.
