Tunks Park

Home > Sydney > Parks | Picnic Spots
Published April 7th 2010
The most compelling aspect of Tunks Park lies hundreds of meters above: the famous stone Suspension Bridge at Northbridge. From the North Sydney CBD, it is possible to drive along Miller St towards Northbridge.

In order to access Tunks Park, it is necessary to drive across the beautiful old bridge, whose road is Strathallen Ave. Once across the bridge, turn right onto Cliff Ave, then drive down to Tunks Park along Lower Cliff Ave.

According to North Sydney Council, Tunks Park backs onto Gully Reserve:

Majestic sweeps of bush cloak the steep sides under the Suspension Bridge. A beautiful vista is funneled to the playing fields and exercise areas of Tunks Park."

There are other man-made features of the park that may be of interest to prospective visitors, including a sports field, boat ramp, BBQs and exercise equipment. There is also a playground that is designed to blend in with the natural environment - complete with a treehouse, seesaw, spring-mounted deck and a large gravel pit. There is even provision made for wheelchair users, with a large curved access ramp that was added to the park in 1996.
