Jubilee Park Adventure Playground, Mortdale, Sydney

The Jubilee Park Adventure Playground in Mortdale, Sydney, features a large climbing frame with nets and slides, a children’s bike track, junior swings, flying foxes and multi-purpose sports courts.

The excellent new multi-million dollar Jubilee Park Adventure Playground is a great addition to the community. Built behind the existing Mortdale Community Centre, the playground has revitalised the park and given the community a great spot to picnic, play and get fit.

Jubilee Park Addventure Playground, Mortdale, Sydney

As part of the upgrade, Jubilee Park was also given a new picnic and BBQ areas, outdoor gym equipment and new seating areas.

Jubilee Park Addventure Playground, Mortdale, Sydney

The centrepiece of the park is the adventure playground. It’s a huge structure that suits older kids best, where they can climb up a huge spiderweb or enclose rope ladder to reach the top, and traverse suspended rope bridges. There is a large tunnel slide to get to the bottom.

Jubilee Park Addventure Playground, Mortdale, Sydney

Also new to the park are a flying fox, basket swing, children’s bike track, junior swings, flying foxes and multi-purpose sports courts.

Jubilee Park Addventure Playground, Mortdale, Sydney

While older kids will love the new climbing structure, littlies can enjoy the junior play area, with rubber hills featuring handholds, swings and a smaller basket swing.

The bike track is really fun for young riders, with a series of paths posted with street signs, road markings and crossings. The track continues throughout the park and through the landscaped play area, where kids will love the “wombat crossing”.

A landscaped play area is lovely for nature play, with wooden logs and rocks for climbing on, and concrete animals such as the wombats.

At the bottom of the park is the fitness area. A variety of multi-purpose courts are perfect for netball, basketball and soccer with goals for all sports available. There is also fitness equipment including balance beams, parallel bars and sit up boards. On the day we visited the courts were being used for skating practice, which is a great idea for kids just learning to rollerskate or ride a bike.

There are public toilets in the park which are clean and maintained well. There is an accessible toilet that has a baby change table in it.

There is no cafe in the park, but we love Bitton, which is only a few blocks away.

We parked in the free car park at the community centre. 

If you’re in the area, I highly recommend checking out Oatley Park and the Oatley Park Adventure Playground as well.

Oatley Park is a 45-hectare bushland reserve on the northern side of the Georges River. It is bounded by the Georges River, Lime Kiln Bay, and Jew Fish Bay. Oatley Park features an inclusive adventure playground, a netted swimming bath, short, easy bush walking tracks, picnic areas and other free amenities for the local community to enjoy. 

Oatley Park, Sydney

The park was created on the headland in 1887, and over the years has been upgraded to create a spot for locals to enjoy recreational sports, cycling, walking, swimming and playing.

Navigating Oatley Park

Oatley Park Bird Life

Oatley Park, Sydney

There have been 145 species of birds recorded in the bushland of Oatley Park, including its tidal mud flaps, mangroves and Lime Kiln wetlands. We spotted a huge amount of sulfur-crested cockatoos but keep your eyes peeled for the many other species that live in this sanctuary.

Websters and Hills Peak Lookouts

The lookouts are accessed by the road (you can pull your car over and hop out to take a look) and feature stunning views over Jew Fish Bay and Lime Kiln Bay.

Oatley Castle

Oatley Castle is a surprising feature of Oatley Park. Built around 1935, the castle was created as a kind of “beach house” that would resemble an old British castle, give views over Oatley Bay and become an attraction for visitors to enjoy.

The castle is accessed by walking/cycling from the playground, or driving. There is a car park next to the base of the castle for easy access, and a ramp from the base of the castle to top for wheelchairs/strollers. 

Oatley Castle has bbq facilities inside it and can be hired for events.

Oatley Park Walking Tracks

Oatley Park Playground

Oatley Park features seven walking tracks of varying length and difficulty, and a 2km cycling/driving/walking loop on paved road in a shared car/bike/pedestrian zone. The road is one direction only, so if you overshoot a spot where you want to park/turn off, you will need to keep driving around the loop and return to the spot again. There is a maximum speed of 20km/h around the park.

The Myra Wall Garden has a wheelchair accessible bushwalking path.

You can read about the walking trail options here.

Sandy Bay – Oatley Park Baths – Jew Fish Bay Baths

On the easterly section of the headland is Jew Fish Bay. Featuring a 320m long shark-proof net, the bay is home to an area called Sandy Bay, featuring Oatley Park Baths / Jew Fish Bay Baths. Oatley Baths was constructed in 1909 and has been the home of the Oatley Amateur Swimming Club since 1927. A popular swimming spot in warmer months, the baths feature one of only a few suspended net enclosures in Sydney, and are one of only two baths/pools in the region to be formed by enclosing a natural shoreline.

The water is a bit muddy when shallow, but is a calm, serene place to swim, with stunning views over the Georges River. The original change rooms are still in operation on the site of the baths.

To reach the baths, drive down to the carpark and walk the rest of the way. There is a ramp and stairs to access the baths.

Myra Wall Garden

The circular Myra Wall Garden was constructed in 1964 to honour a local conservationist. Parking is beside the garden which is located 300m on the left from the main entrance, along
the main road.

Oatley Park – Important Information

There are no direct public transport links to the park. It is a 1.7km walk from Oatley Station. The 954 bus service from Oatley Station drops you 700 metres from the entry to Oatley Park. 

Entry to the park via Oatley Park Avenue is narrow and means that often, only one car at a time can pass through. AVOID entry and exit to the park during school drop off and pick up. You can also drive in via Douglas Haig St. 

There is a car park at the playground. If this is full, try Myra Wall Garden, Frog Hollows and the Oval – they function as overflow carparks.

The park closes at sunset and the vehicle gates are locked. Make sure if you have driven in, to leave before the gates are locked as there is a fee to retrieve your car.

There are free BBQ and picnic facilities available throughout the park, including next to the playground.

Visiting Captain Cook’s Landing Place At Kamay Botany Bay National Park Kurnell

Visiting Captain Cooks Landing Kamay Botany Bay National Park Kurnell Sydney

Visiting Captain Cook’s Landing Place At Kamay Botany Bay National Park, Kurnell

Kamay Botany Bay National Park in Kurnell is the landing place of the HMS Endeavour, and place of first contact between the local Aboriginal people, Captain Cook and the ship’s crew.  

It is one of NSW’s most significant heritage sites, and was included in the National Heritage List in 2004. 

Kurnell Kamay Botany Bay National Park

There are many reasons to visit Kamay Botany Bay National Park, from exploring the history of the peninsula to leisure activities. 

The Kurnell Visitor Centre is currently closed for renovations, but would usually be the best place to start a visit and learn about local Aboriginal culture and history, including encounters with the crew of HMS Endeavour in 1770.

Burrawang Walk

Kurnell Kamay Botany Bay National Park

To understand the historical events that took place here, take the Burrawang Walk, a paved path that leads to several of the area’s historic sites, including Captain Cook’s Landing Place. 

Kurnell Kamay Botany Bay National Park

The walk starts at the Kurnell Visitor Centre. It is a 1.2km loop and takes anywhere from 15 – 45min. A large section of this walk is paved and wheelchair-accessible, however the last section that leads to the new whale sculpture is not.

The Burrawang Walk tells the story of the first meeting of European and Aboriginal culture. During one section of the walk there is a a soundscape featuring Aboriginal language, children laughing and clap sticks.

Kurnell Kamay Botany Bay National Park

The walk leads visitors past many of the historical sites on the peninsula, including the welcome wall, freshwater stream, the meeting place, Banks’ Memorial, Ferry Shelter Shed and Captain Cook’s Landing Place.

Kurnell Kamay Botany Bay National Park

There are interpretive signs along the walk that explain the significance of the sites and perspective of both the Aboriginal tribes and European ship’s crew, including the first impressions both had, and the deep misunderstanding between the two cultures from the very start. 

Kurnell Kamay Botany Bay National Park

In 1770, Lieutenant (later Captain) James Cook, along with botanists Joseph Banks and Daniel Solander and the crew of the HMS Endeavour, landed at Botany Bay’s Inscription Point. He and his crew stayed in the area for eight days. 

Kurnell Kamay Botany Bay National Park

Cook and Banks recommended Botany Bay as a suitable site for settlement, however upon inspection by Captain Arthur Phillip it was found unsuitable as it had no secure fresh water or suitable anchorage, resulting in the selection of Sydney Cove to set up a penal colony instead.

Kurnell Kamay Botany Bay National Park

There were Aboriginal people of two different nations living in the area at the time – the Goorawal People and the Gweagal People. Their way of life, responses to the landing and consequences following the invasion have been included in the interpretive signs on display. There are several significant historical Aboriginal sites throughout Kamay Botany Bay National Park including middens and engravings.

Read about an Aboriginal perspective to the landing here.

250th anniversary and sculpture installation

2020 marked the 250th anniversary of the encounter between Aboriginal Australians and the crew the HMB Endeavour on 29 April 1770. Three large bronze sculptures of significance to the Gweagal Aboriginal People were installed along the walk to acknowledge the anniversary, designed and created by Aboriginal artists Julie Squires, Theresa Ardler and Alison Page.

The works include both Aboriginal and European viewpoints of the arrival of the Endeavour. 

Kurnell Kamay Botany Bay National Park

Julie Squires and Theresa Ardler’s work ‘Wi-Yanga and Gurung The Whales’ are based on Ardler’s painting on her Budbili, a possum skin cloak. “The story behind my Budbili is connected to the Sydney rock engravings of the mother humpback whale and her baby, out at La Perouse on the shores of Botany Bay. This engraving is a prominent landmark from my ancestors who carved the rock and continues to hold cultural and spiritual connection to our sea and country.”

Kurnell Kamay Botany Bay National Park

A Rock Weave was also installed near the whales; a woven fishing net was hand made by Aboriginal Master Weaver Phyllis Stewart and cast into bronze by sculptor Julie Squires.

Kurnell Kamay Botany Bay National Park

The ‘Nuwi/Canoes’ represent stringy bark canoes that the the Gweagal Clan traditionally fished from. “During their ‘first contact’ observations, both Cook and Banks recorded this practice,” explained Ardler.

Kurnell Kamay Botany Bay National Park

Alison Page with Nik Lachacjzak designed ‘Eyes of the Land and Water’. The work is an “abstraction of the ribs of the HMB Endeavour and the bones of the Gweagal totem the whale”. Working closely with researchers at the Gujaga Foundation and Gweagal artist, Shane Youngberry, Page and Lachacjzak developed cultural and historical content which was etched into each rib, including a description of the encounters at Kamay in 1770.

“The Eyes of the Land and the Sea’ is a story about discovery. Not the discovery of land by England, but of all Australians discovering our true history as we move together towards a reconciled Nation,” explained Page.

Read more about the mixed response to the anniversary commemoration here.

Whale watching

Kurnell is an excellent spot for whale watching between June and July. Drive from the visitor centre to the Cape Solander viewing platform to watch the whale migration.

Water activities

Inscription Point and Sutherland Point are popular spots for diving and snorkelling. 

Rock pools

Just past the whale sculpture are some incredible rock pools to explore. 

Kurnell Kamay Botany Bay National Park

Bush walks

Try the Banks-Solander track and Cape Baily track for a longer walk. There are plenty of native birds to be spotted.

The delightfully zen Auburn Botanic Gardens are located in Auburn, in South-West Sydney. Established in 1977, the gardens are surprisingly tucked away in a suburban pocket between rows of houses. Spread over 9.7 hectares, the gardens are a serene place to enjoy nature.

The Auburn Botanical Gardens are broken into several distinct sections.

Auburn Botanic Gardens Sydney

Japanese Garden

The most well-known is the Japanese garden, which a row of cherry blossom trees that blossom each spring, torii gates, a red bridge, waterfall and lake. The koi carp fish in the lake are beautiful, and when we visited there was a large cluster of peacocks, swans and ducks around the lake.

Newmarket Dining Randwick: Eat, Play and Unwind

Newmarket Dining Randwick: Eat, Play and Unwind

Sydney’s newest precinct, Newmarket Dining is a place to eat at cosy cafes and restaurants, picnic in the park and play at a state-of-the-art playground.

Officially opened in 2020, Newmarket Randwick was built on a site containing plenty of local history. The original inhabitants were thought to be the Cadigal and Biddigal Aboriginal people. In 1809, the land was granted to an ex-convict named Andrew Byrne, before becoming part of Randwick’s horse racing story. William Inglis & Son, Australia’s largest and oldest racehorse auctioneer, took over the site from 1917 – 2017, transforming it into the Newmarket Sales yard.

Some of Australia’s most famous horses paraded the sales yard, which has now been transformed into a children’s playground, and scenes from the movie Phar Lap were filmed in the Newmarket Big Stable, which is in the process of being resorted for use by the community.  

Surrounded by a ring of shiny new apartments, the Newmarket Dining precinct at Newmarket Randwick has opened with Baccomatto Osteria, an Italian restaurant, RaRa Randwick, a Japanese diner, Cali Press, makers of seasonal salad bowls, Café Mckenzie, serving speciality coffee and a Middle Eastern menu in a family-friendly environment.

The outdoor space at Newmarket Randwick is designed to encourage community engagement, with space for picnics, BBQs and a brand new playground with lots of inclusive elements.

One challenge we noticed on our visit was that the bathrooms were locked and not generally accessible, so keep that in mind when visiting that if you need to use a toilet you will need to ask one of the shops/cafes for a key.

The easiest way to reach Newmarket is by public transport as parking in the area is a challenge. To use public transport, take the light rail or bus. The nearest light rail stops are UNSW High Street and Randwick.

A month-by-month guide to Fruit Picking Sydney: strawberries, apples, oranges

Fruit Picking Sydney

Fruit Picking Sydney: A month-by-month guide of where to go and what to pick

One of our new favourite activities is fruit picking in Sydney. We are so lucky to have so many pick-your-own orchards within 90 minutes of Sydney. Depending on the season, choose from strawberry picking, apple picking, orange picking and more.

All of the farms and orchards listed are within a 2-hour driving distance of Sydney’s CBD, making them all do-able for a weekend outing.

Fruit & Nut Picking Seasons

These are the peak seasons and locations for where fruit picking occurs in Sydney. Some crops run longer than others and crossover seasons.

January to June – Apples, Persimmons, Plums (Bilpin) 

March to April – Chestnuts & Walnuts (Mt Wilson & Mt Irvine)

July to October – Oranges & Mandarins (Hawkesbury)

November to January – Peaches (Bilpin) and berries (Thirlmere and Dapto)

As the weather impacts the time when fruit will be ready for harvest it is advisable to call the orchards below and check which fruit is ready for picking as the charts on the various websites may vary by up to 2 weeks.

Tips on fruit picking in Sydney

Bilpin Fruit Bowl

Get all the info first
Check the orchard’s Facebook page for the most current information on their stock levels. Many orchards are bookings only. Some require and entrance fee on top of cost per kilogram for purchasing the fruit at the end.

Wear appropriate clothes
It can be dirty work, picking fruit, through muddy fields, so wear appropriate clothes. Most nut farms provide gloves for picking, but double check before turning up to pick prickly nuts. Most farms are an hour and a half drive out of Sydney and the temperature might be different to that at home, so check the weather before leaving home. Bilpin in particular can get cold.

Bring your own bags
Heavy duty reusable supermarket bags are best. Some people take boxes which is a good option for keeping fruit safe from bruising. Most orchards will provide you with plastic bags if needed.

Stock up on produce
Most orchards sell other pre-packed produce either grown on their own farm or locally. You will be able to pick up fresh eggs, juice, fruit, vegetables and often fruit pies.

Fruit Picking during COVID-19

Many orchards are open during the COVID-19 pandemic, with strict social distancing rules in place. Entry to farms are limited by numbers so if the farm doesn’t take bookings, I suggest arriving when the farm opens as that’s when the least amount of people will be there. During this time it is especially important to look at the farm’s most recent updates on their opening hours and social distancing procedures before driving all the way there and being turned away.

If you are self isolating but want to pick up fresh produce, many farms are doing contactless pick up of their produce, usually by phone order or they have stalls out the front with pre-packaged produce.

Fruit picking with kids

Bilpin Fruit Bowl

Kids of all ages generally love fruit picking. It’s a great activity for the whole family to enjoy. When visiting a farm with kids, remember to keep a close eye on them. Any fruit picked must be bought – before it’s eaten. Remind kids before starting to pick fruit of the rules. Anything picked goes into the bags, and definitely no throwing fruit, or trampling the plants on the farm.

Strathfield Park and Playgrounds

Visiting Strathfield Park

Strathfield Park, the oldest public park in Strathfield, is home to a huge playground with three play spaces, spanning 1.5 acres.

The park was renovated in 2017, with the resulting play spaces uniquely designed to  compliment each other, taking into account the various ages and abilities of children who might enjoy the play equipment. 

Strathfield Park

The main playground area features the premiere Skytower, an eye-catching structure, with four slides attached, a Konnecta rope play structure and triple Skyrider flying fox.

Nearby is the all abilities play area, which includes a carousel, mounds, slides, swings, maze and fortress area.

Linking the two play areas is a forest garden area with a Bushwood Teepee Tower, a giant wooden Lizard and the Flecto spinner.

A flat bike path leads across the park to the last playground area on the Chalmers Road side, which includes a smaller climbing structure and an excellent educational kids bike track with road signs.

The rest of the park includes barbecue equipment, sporting fields and a very old toilet amenities block in the middle of the park.

Tips On Visiting La Perouse Beaches

Tips for visiting La Perouse Beaches

Tips On Visiting La Perouse Beaches

La Perouse is located at the northern headland of Kamay Botany Bay National Park, near Maroubra. Named after a French explorer who landed on the northern shore of Botany Bay, to the west of Bare Island in 1788, La Perouse has great walks, restaurants, historic sites and sheltered beaches.

The traditional owners of this land, the Aboriginal people, lived in this area thousands of years before the First Fleet arrived.

La Perouse Beaches

Frenchmans Bay

Frenchmans Beach, La Perouse, Sydney

The most family-friendly of the La Perouse beaches, Frenchman Bay is located at the eastern end Botany Bay.

Frenchmans Bay La Perouse

A sheltered, calm bay, Frenchmans Bay has easy access from the street and plenty of off-street parking nearby. 

The Boat Shed, La Perouse, Sydney

There are plenty of shops and restaurants located right across the road from the beach. We loved The Boat Shed, which is extremely family-friendly and located above Frenchmans Bay.

There is a reserve behind the beach with a newly-built children’s playground and public toilets.

Frenchmans Bay La Perouse Frenchmans Bay La Perouse

There is very little shade on the beach, so a beach tend or umbrella are a good idea. 

Frenchmans Beach, La Perouse, Sydney

Be warned that the beach is not patrolled by lifeguards or lifesavers.

Congwong Beach

Congwong Beach, La Perouse, Sydney

Another calm La Perouse beach, Congwong Beach is a sheltered bay located inside the Botany Bay National Park. 

To access Congwong Beach, follow the track that leads down from the car park.

Little Congwong Beach

Little Congwong Beach La Perouse

Little Congwong Beach is a further 600m down the same track that leads to Congwong Beach. Take in and out any food and rubbish that you have with you – there are no rubbish bins available. The nearest public toilets are located at the start of the track that leads to 

Once considered an unofficial nudist beach, signs at the entrance to the track leading to Little Congwong Beach now aim to deter nudity.
