Sailing to the Pittwater Icons
Surrounded by extensive national parks, Pittwater is a large sheltered waterway, part of the broader Broken Bay. With the famous Newport Beach and Palm Beach to the east, and West Head and Hawkesbury river system to the West, it is a popular sailing experience. There are many beautiful bays, beaches, creeks, islands, rivers and nature reserves to explore.
On a boat rental Pittwater, there are several excellent beaches including The Basin and Great Mackerel beach. Sailing around Scotland Island is a must do, as you sail past West Head (nature park) to the west. Further north, Broken Bay offers great sailing opportunities with fresh breezes around Lion Island, and further north to Pearl Beach, Patonga and Kilcare.
North West up the Hawkesbury is a broad expanse of water taking you to Brooklyn. Stop in to one of many restaurants for a tasty lunch. Beyond Brooklyn the water system continues and eventually winds its way right up to Wisemans Ferry but these places are beyond a day yacht charter.
South West up the Hawkesbury you can discover breathtaking private bays including Bay of Americas & Refuge Bay. Renowned for the waterfall right onto the beach which is truly spectacular and only accessible by boat. (You can also find the special plaque commemorating the WWII special forces training site for the “Krate” boat & their adventures). Further upstream continues through the Kuringgai National Park past Cottage Point (great restaurant for lunch) to Bobbin Head, or Coal and Candle Creek. Travelling beyond Cottage Point is usually best under motor.
Newport and Church Point, located within Pittwater, are convenient pick up / drop wharfs.
