Wattamolla Picnic Area

Royal National Park, Heathcote

Cockatoo Island

Central Sydney 

Located in the heart of Sydney harbour, this historically beautiful UNESCO World Heritage Listed island is one to tick off your bucket list. Pack your camera and immerse yourself in the well-preserved scenery. Warning: Once you arrive you won’t want to leave. But don’t worry, you can book a luxurious tent on their camping site for an overnight stay.

Royal Botanic Garden

Sydney CBD

Situated in the middle of Sydney’s bustling CBD, the Royal Botanic Garden will instantly calm your mind. Boasting colourful, unique flowers, trees and plants this family-friendly location is not one to miss. With the Opera House right next door, the breathtaking view is worth going for alone.

Centennial Park

Looking for a hassle-free, family-friendly picnic spot? Look no further than the magical Centennial Park. Let the kids run free around the park and playgrounds, and watch the happiness beam from their faces while they feed majestic swans and cheeky ducks. With an abundance of trees, shade is easy to find and you’ll be able to spend the whole day lounging around on nature’s luscious furniture.

Lady Robinson Beach


Pining for the feel of sand between your toes? Lady Robinson Beach is calling your name. Simply pack a few sandwiches and enjoy what this wonderful location has to offer. Wade in four tidal pools, enjoy the bike and walking paths, and if you enjoy a spot of fishing the opportunity is there too!

Going on a relaxing picnic with those close to your heart is one way you can relax your mind. But, when it comes to de-stressing your body, don’t forget eating well is key.
