ACTIVITIES

There are a vast array of bushwalks within the Lane Cove National Park and a visit to the river and the fish ladder near the weir which provides the opportunity for migratory fish to swim upstream, is always a treat.

Kayaks, canoes and pedal boats can be hired from the Lane Cove Boatshed on weekends and are an excellent option for more energetic guests.

Sounding Good?  Read on…

Tandara affords guests a tranquil location to spoil someone special. Harmoniously integrated into the Australian bush, Tandara was built to offer something very different to what a traditional camping experience might entail. It reflects a practical approach to integrating sustainability principles into tourism development on land within a Reserve or National Park.

Tandara is unique, there is only one tent! A spacious self-contained canvas tent within its own private sanctuary. There are also other budget and family accommodation options (such as cabins) within the Park if you are looking for accommodation for one than one couple.

Our tip: Tandara is a great experience, however please note that it is situated on the edge of the Lane Cove Tourist Caravan Park in the city. While your caravan park neighbours are not visible, they may be heard.  If you are after a complete bush getaway, we recommend looking at other great glamping options nearby.
