Walk slowly

Pack and picnic, sun-cream and your swimmers, or if you're feeling interpid, a tent.

Drive to the Palm Beach ferry wharf on Pittwater or catch the L90 bus from the city.

Catch the ferry to the Basin, there is usually one departing each hour

The ferry to the basin. You can see Lion Island and the lighthouse in the distance

When you arrive, head towards the shallow bathing area to the left and keep your eyes peeled for kangaroos.

This one grabbed a banana skin

Look at that grin! (I'm not talking about the child)

If you want to camp at the Basin, there is a well established camping ground with showers and toilets, fires permitted, electric BBQ's & a vending machine.

The truly energetic are well rewarded here with a very steep bushwalk from the campground that reveals aboriginal carvings after walking (or cycling) for about an hour uphill.

The spectacular views across Pittwater are also a bonus.
