Waterfront bushwalking and the perfect place for a picnic
Tambourine Bay Park boasts a peaceful waterfront location in Lane Cove. As the name suggests, the park sits on the shores of the calm and quiet Tambourine Bay.

With a large area of gently sloping grass, this park is a great spot for a relaxing picnic on a sunny day. Picnic tables and benches are available, along with BBQ facilities if you feel like a snag or three. There's also children's play equipment to keep the kids occupied, while public toilets are a handy addition. To top it all off, there's ample shade if you need to get out of the sun.

As well as being a good spot for a picnic, Tambourine Bay Park is also a designated off-leash area for dogs. If your pooch likes exploring and making new friends, he'll be right at home here.

A short stroll from the park is the historic Tambourine Bay Well, which was built in 1833 by Thomas Duckworth to collect the pure water from a natural spring. It was an important source of water for residents in the surrounding areas.

Tambourine Bay Park is also the starting point for a lovely bushwalk to nearby Warraroon Reserve. Starting at the now-closed harbour baths, the track winds along the shores of Tambourine Bay. It climbs slightly to take in sandstone cliffs and rock overhangs, as well as running alongside mangroves on the water's edge.

The well-worn track then turns away from the water to deposit you in the relaxing surrounds of Warraroon Reserve. This walk is the perfect way to explore a peaceful stretch of water, and it's sometimes hard to believe how close you really are to the Sydney CBD.

To access Tambourine Bay Park, you can find off-street parking at the end of Tambourine Bay Road and further street parking in Kallaroo Road. Head to the Lane Cove Council website for more information.
