The Basin is located on the eastern side of the West Head peninsula in Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park adjoining magnificent Pittwater. It is a popular public picnic and camping area administered by the National Parks and Wildlife Service. It has a large grassed camping area as well as a safe enclosed lagoon for swimming. A variety of habitats are available nearby that include dry eucalypt, rainforest, mangroves and rock platforms.
