According to ol’ Bob, Sydney is full of wankers…”these Sydney folk are so far up their own ass they could eat for dinner what they had for lunch”. It’s fair to say that Sydney ain’t Bob’s favourite Australian city. But Sydney has it’s charms. The beaches are incredible, the weather is amazing and the women are prettier than a cocaine sunrise. If you’re headin’ for Sydney, be sure to give your old friend Bob a call – he’ll get you a campervan so good you’ll think the goose had laid it’s golden egg right on your fuckin’ face!
Australia’s first and biggest colonial city – Sydney has evolved to become one of the worlds great destinations. With the Blue Mountains just 45 minutes west and the magnificent Pacific Ocean right on the doorstep – Sydney is usually the first port of call for travellers to Australia.
While most travellers tend to hover around Bondi Beach, Kings Cross and Manly – they are often missing out on the REAL Sydney. The coastline north of Manly (known as the North Shore) is littered with massive headlands and perfect sandy beaches – and FAR LESS people to compete with for space!
Just south of Sydney are the urban city beaches of Maroubra and Cronulla – both perfect for a day trip if you’ve got time and wheels! Most Campervan and Car Hire Operators are based in Sydney, and Bob’s Campervan World truly recommends hiring a car, campervan or motorhome so you can truly explore the city and it’s endless nooks and crannies!
With a population of nearly 4 million, there are endless activities and tour providers to choose from – from surfing lessons and Skydiving to Winery Tours and National Parks – Sydney has everything a traveller needs for a great time!
Hire a Campervan in Sydney and explore Ku-Ring-Gai Chase National Park!
Sydney is fortunate to have at the edge of its suburban sprawl and 24 km (15 miles) from the city center a national park of great beauty. Visitors can take a scenic drive through it or stroll along its many tracks. Bordered by Pittwater to the east, Broken Bay to the north and Sydney’s suburbs towards the south, the Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park covers over 15,000 hectares (37,000 acres) and contains rivers, gorges and more than 100 km (62 miles) of navigable water.
Caves and sheltered overhangs in sandstone provided protection for the Aborigines who once lived there. Rock engravings of kangaroos, dolphins, emus and sharks are their memorial. Maps on where to see Aboriginal paintings can be obtained from the Bobbin Head Information and Retail Centre or Kalkai Visitor Centre.
How to Get There: A ferry to the park leaves from Palm Beach, or follow the signs from either the Berowra, Ku-ring-gai or Cowan railway stations.
