Overlooking Pittwater in the Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park at West Head, The Basin is a large grassy area with beautiful surrounds and spectacular views.
At The Basin, you’ll find great facilities along with a picnic area, sheltered beach and an inland lagoon where we are able to take the students canoeing and stand-up paddle boarding.
There’s no car access to The Basin campground. Schools can park at West Head Road but it’s a steep 2.8km walk to the campground from there. If you’re not up for the hike, arrive by ferry which leaves from Palm Beach Wharf.
