Lane Cove accommodation
Lane Cove is only nine kilometres north of Sydney on a peninsula at the mouth of the Lane Cove River that flows into the Sydney Harbour. It's about a 15 minute drive by car or bus into the centre of the city. Lane Cove accommodation's made pleasurable in that it's near a fully stocked supermarket, restaurants, cafes, speciality shops, a golf course, gymnasium, and aquatic centre.
Parklands At Your Front Door
Lane Cove holiday rentals are surrounded by parklands that entice you to pack up a picnic lunch and a BBQ to spend the day in the outdoors throwing a frisbee or ball around with the kids. Once you get them started the kids can run around in the wide-open spaces enjoying themselves on the swings while you get their lunch ready. All this is so easy when you stay at Lane Cove as 16 percent of land in the suburb's been set-aside as public recreation areas. For instance you can choose whether to go to; Burns Bay Park, Blackman Park, Pottery Green, Tambourine Park, or walk the natural bushland settings along the river banks, particularly at Lane Cove West or Riverview.
The Lane Cove River
The Lane Cove River begins its rush to the Sydney Harbour from Thornleigh, an outer Sydney suburb 15 kilometres to its north. Its upper reaches are heavily forested as it cuts its way through a narrow valley where a weir's constructed. This weir controls the water flowing down the river giving it a constant level and making it suitable for all kinds of water sports in its lower reaches at Lane Cove.
Lane Cove National Park On The Slopes Of The River Valley
The Lane Cove National Park is a small park with much of it taken up with rugged terrain and dense bush. However, there are many picnic sites available mostly between the tourist park and the Fullers Road Bridge. The lower part of the park is popular with cyclists, joggers and walkers.
A Great Place For A Cycling Holiday
Sydney accommodation is generally cycling friendly with most local municipalities putting areas aside for safe riding. Lane Cove is no different, particularly at Blackman Park. It's a great place for children to learn road rules while they have cycling fun in a safe environment. The cycle ride between Longueville Wharf and Greenwich Wharf gives you some wonderful views of Sydney Harbour. Aquatic Park and Cunningham's Reach are also accessible by cycling tracks. All within easy distance from your Lane Cove holiday rental that is the same as bringing your home on holiday with you, so that you can enjoy your own space, privacy and independence.
