Ku-ring-gai Wildflower Garden

Featuring bushland, gullies, ponds and waterfalls, it's a great venue for a bushwalk, picnic or a special event.

The Ku-ring-gai Wildflower Garden is one of Sydney's best kept secrets!

Situated in St Ives, the 123 hectares of urban bushland is a great spot for bush walking, picnicking and special events.

Within the Wildflower Garden visitors can choose from a range of public access walking tracks, including the accessible Senses Track or the more challenging Mueller Track.

The Garden features heath land, tall forest, sandstone outcrops, ponds, gullies and waterfalls. There are several picnic areas with barbecues, some of which are available for hire.

There is plenty of onsite parking, toilet facilities and a children's playground.
