EXPLORING NARRABEEN LAGOON







Every time I drive up to Avalon and its surrounding areas in Sydney's Northern Beaches I drive past Narrabeen Lagoon and want to stop and explore. But usually there's never time. However, this long weekend we made a trip of going there and took bikes and scooters in the hope that the little ones could have a little fun exploring.

The drive takes about 40 minutes from the centre of the city and there was (paid) parking on site. Alongside the lagoon is a bike trail and while we didn't walk the whole way, I've read that it takes about 1 hour 40 minutes.

It's a beautiful walk through bushland that is almost always within view of the lagoon, which has a variety of birds, including pelicans and ducks. There are lots of sports facilities in the vicinity too - we spotted an abseiling wall and an archery range, as well as kayaks.

A new bridge opened on the site in March and the area was popular with a cross section of locals - from seniors to babies being pushed in jogging prams.
