"Quiet and tranquil"

Bobbin Head is a quiet little bay area up the Central Coast of Sydney but not really all that far away. There is a really nice picnic area with shaded benches and tables and a quiet stretch of water that is really good for fishing, kayaking or boating. There are never any waves and not many people around. Hence, it is a great place to get away from the crowds especially on a beautiful sunny day. The barbeque facilities there means you can cook some food with the family. Just beware that there is quite a descent to the actual Bobbin Head area and some people will have experience "popping" ears due to the change in pressure.
