Blaxland Riverside Park - the adventurous playground

We accidentally found this playground while shopping in the area. It turns out to be the best and the biggest playground we had ever experienced in Sydney.

The Dragon swing

Slides in all different heights

The steepest slide. Simply awesome!!

The flying fox

Unfortunately it was pretty late when we reached there, the water park was closed for the day and there might be other areas that we didn't get to explore. But this playground is worth coming back for.

The beauty of Northern Beaches: Long Reef, Avalon and Palm Beach

Besides the famous Manly beach at the north, there are many others that are worth visiting for their scenic beauty. 

Long Reef Beach

A unique Long Reef Beach with lagoon on one side and ocean on the other side

Avalon Beach

Great waves for surfing

The rockpool at Avalon

Palm Beach

Palm Beach wharf has the ferry to Ku-ring-gai National Park
From Palm Beach, we walked up about 1km to the Barrenjoey Lighthouse. The view up there was beautiful, well worth the effort.
