Just 200 metres down from the Ku-ring-gai Wildflower Garden entrance gate is Bidwill's Clearing.

This basic but highly visible picnic area has been designed for visitors who prefer to bring their own barbecue or event caterer. The shelter shed provides ample weather protection for a small group, while still allowing additional space for small marques or pop-up shelters to be errected for larger groups.

It is available for hire from 8am to 5pm daily (including weekends and public holidays).

Bidwill's Clearing can be hired for $35 per hour with a minimum booking period of 2 hours on weekdays and 3 hours on weekends.  A non-refundable booking fee of $9 will also apply.  To make a booking, please fill in and return the Application for Facility Hire form (pdf. 223KB).  Please also read our Terms and Conditions (pdf. 193KB).
