Do you feel like unwinding on the weekend after a tough week of work? Taking out a blanket, laying it on the grass and just sitting by the inlets of the Hawkesbury River?

Kuring Gai Chase National Park offers this experience to all visitors. Children are free to ride their bikes around the picnic area. Visitors are welcome to bring food for picnics and good old fashioned Aussie barbecues. Family areas also offer much land to play family sports without much interference from other families.

For the men, a boat hire store offers a range of canoes and small boats for people to borrow and go fishing in the inlet of river water in the serenity of the river valleys of the Hawkesbury.

Or if you just want some alone time, there are walking trails through the bush of the national park. There are even watering holes along the way of many trails, just in case you feel like an invigorating swim on a hot day. Just make sure you know your way around and don't get lost because it can be a frightening experience.

Or if you are an avid lover of nature and camping, the Basin campgrounds offer the traditional camping experience for visitors to be exposed to nature all day and night. It costs only $4.40 per adult to enter the campground, and just $2.20 per child.

In this park, vehicle entry fees are $11 per vehicle per day. If you're arriving by bus or taxi you'll need to pay daily entry fees of $4.40 adults and $2.20 children.

Certainly, there is no shortage of activities to enjoy and participate in at the Kuring Gai Chase National Park. So when you have nothing to do on a weekend, be sure to make the hour long trip north from the CBD.
