The Basin is the only part of the Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park where camping is permitted.
Overlooking the Hawkesbury River on Sydney's northern outskirts, Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park frames the shores of Pittwater and Broken Bay with sandstone cliffs, eucalypt forests and rainforest. The park also has an extravagant bird life, and a rich legacy of rock art left by the Garigal people, for whom the park is named.
The Basin has toilets, cold showers, gas barbecues and even a shelter shed. Relatively difficult access deters car-boot campers. The camp site can be reached only on foot, via a two-kilometre walk along The Basin Track, or by ferry from Palm Beach Wharf.
The Basin can accommodate 400 people, and has a public telephone and drink vending machine. This is a great spot for swimming, bushwalking, mountain biking, birdwatching and simply relaxing.
