Day Trip to Palm Beach

Crowned by the Barrenjoey Lighthouse about an hour north of Sydney, Palm Beach is an idyllic spot that combines the best of beaches, bush and food. A day trip to Palm Beach begins with a leisurely ramble across the Hawkesbury River, through Garigal National Park and out to the Northern Beaches, at which point coastal rhythms take over.

When the highway finally ends at a parking lot that stretches up the spit, you know you have arrived. Here’s how to enjoy a day trip to Palm Beach.

And instead of simply floating along drinking champagne like most tour options offer, I was looking for a real experience.
