Surrounded by the Pacific Ocean, Brisbane Waters and Bouddi National Park, the Killcare Peninsula is a largely undiscovered paradise.
Boasting seven unspoilt sandy beaches - Killcare Beach is patrolled, with the other beaches accessible only by foot or water. They include Lobster Beach, Tallow Beach and Maitland Bay, site of the historic shipwreck of the paddle steamer Maitland in 1898.
Just 900 metres over the hill from beautiful Killcare surf beach lies the tranquil Brisbane Water. Hardys Bay, Pretty Beach and Wagstaffe offer deepwater moorings and Wagstaffe is literally around the corner from Broken Bay, Pittwater and the Hawkesbury River. Whatever pastime you desire, whether active or passive, you will find it here on the Killcare peninsula. There are activities galore… fishing from the public jetties, boating and kayaking, tennis at Turo park, swimming, bushwalking, picnicking or enjoying a ferry ride. Indulge at the cafés and restaurants, wander through the galleries or pamper yourself with a beauty treatment and massage. Enjoy the local relaxed atmosphere... it is common to be greeted with a friendly smile by a complete stranger.
Hardys Bay has a busy marina. It’s a safe haven for yachts with guest moorings. Both sailing and kayaking are popular in the bay. There is even an annual regatta for old timber sail boats.
Killcare and Putty beaches offer both body surfing and safe protected swimming.
Killcare Beach has an active Surf Club and is patrolled throughout the Summer Season, Easter and October school holidays.
Being close to a Marine Reserve, both the bay and beaches provide exceptional fishing.
Bouddi National Park provides excellent bush walking along its spectacular ridges. Its network of coastal trails leads to pristine beaches such as secluded Maitland Bay and dramatic Tallow Beach. There is an abundance of Australian native flora such as angophora trees, cycads and blackboys, native flowers and a wealth of bird life.
There are breathtaking views from many vantage points in the area, comparable to the best the world has to offer. The view from the Marie Byles lookout on the Scenic Road, looking down the coastline over Barrenjoey and the headlands to Sydney is spectacular and definitely worth a visit. The wildlife will captivate you, with a huge variety of birds and animals. Whale and dolphin sightings are common and you might be lucky to have penguins swim with you at the beach. Many examples of ancient aboriginal culture can also be found throughout the 1,532 hectares of National Park.
