St Ives Precinct

National Parks and Reserves Parks and Gardens

The St Ives Precinct is one of Sydney’s best kept secrets! Situated in St Ives, the 216 hectares of urban bushland is a great spot for bush walking, picnicking, sport, and special events.

Within the Wildflower Garden, visitors can choose from a range of public access walking tracks, including the accessible Senses Track or the more challenging Mueller Track. The garden features heath land, tall forest, sandstone outcrops, ponds, gullies and waterfalls. There are picnic areas with barbecues, some of which are available for hire. There is on site parking, toilet facilities, and a children’s playground.

The St Ives Showground is a fantastic venue for major events and is home to Northside Riding Club and other busy community based organisations. The Showground is also the home of the very popular St Ives Medieval Faire.
