Where tranquil waters and friendly locals collide
BEST TIME TO VISIT
Heatseekers should consider scheduling their yacht charter in Pittwater during the summer months of December to February. With warm temperatures between 24°C and 28°C complemented by the light humidity, this is the perfect time of year for water-based activities and sun lounging. The autumn (or fall) months of March through May also present typically warm temperatures between 17°C and 25°C. This is also a popular time to visit, however the nights can feel cool.
Those seeking solace should consider visiting during the winter from June to August. The slowest season for tourism, you’ll have most local landmarks to yourself during the week. Temperatures typically top out at 17°C during the day. While this might seem chilly to some, those from colder parts of the world may still find this comfortable.
Ideal weather: 25 – 32°C
Activities & Experiences
Relax onboard your private, floating retreat while you admire the scenic beauty of Pittwater. Recruit your closest friends and spend a day exploring the very best this area has to offer, culminating in a gourmet dinner onboard while you’re whisked back home. Stay on board a little longer and enjoy a laid back tour of all the local haunts.
While planning your itinerary, consider some of these must-do activities:
One of the most iconic sights marking Sydney’s northern coastlines, the Barrenjoey Lighthouse is well worth a stop. Sitting 91 metres above sea level, this landmark offers some of the most impressive views of the Pacific Ocean, Broken Bay and the Ku-ring-gai National Park. Home and Away fans might recognise the lighthouse from the show, and can even spot the Summer Bay Surf Club nearby. Built in 1801, the sandstone lighthouse is presented in its original stone finish and the interior can be toured by appointment.
Ku-ring-Gai National Park & The Basin
The picturesque Ku-ring-gai national park could be a whole month long visit on its own. With its expansive grounds perfect for cycling, bush-walking and fishing, it’s the perfect place to get amongst nature. We recommend taking a small hike in the park followed by a lunchtime stop at The Basin. The Basin is a beautiful bayside camping area with ample facilities for a traditional Aussie barbecue. Meet the free roaming native animals such as wallabies and kookaburras and enjoy a sausage sizzle before jumping onboard for the next destination.
A friendly community of around 1,000 residents currently inhabit the charming Scotland Island in Pittwater. Only accessible by boat, this area is replete with natural bushland and cheeky local wildlife. The locals are famously friendly, and there are many water based activities such as kayaking and paddle boarding available from local vendors.
Swing by the rustic venue known as The Newport. Located conveniently on the shores of Pittwater, this expertly renovated pub is set amongst peaceful gardens and includes multiple well appointed outdoor dining areas and bars. Executive chef Sebastien Lutaud and pizza magician Vincenzo have created a diverse smorgasbord of mouthwatering dishes which pair well with the extensive wine list.
