Brisbane Water National Park - Somersby
Brisbane Waters National Park is 11,473 hectares and is located nine kilometres south-west of Gosford (on the Pacific Highway) and 60 kilometres north of Sydney. It is a great place to see wildflowers and go bushwalking, birdwatching and sightseeing.
The sandstone landscapes are rich in Aboriginal art. See engravings at Bulgandry on Woy Woy Road and water views from Warrah Trig and Staples lookouts. Somersby Falls and Girrakool picnic areas have excellent picnic facilities and bush walks.
The park is bounded by the Hawkesbury River and Broken Bay to the south, Peats Ridge to the west, Somersby Road to the north and Brisbane Water to the east.
