Short Drives around Sydney

One thing about Sydney is the vastness of the city which can catch you by surprise. Sydney has grown leaps and bounds in all directions and it now takes hours to get out of Sydney in any direction.
And this can sometimes can lead to bit of a irritant especially for people who love driving yet are constrained by time and other things to do in life . 

My recent challenge has been to find good drives in and around Sydney where the drive time does not exceed 3 hours . So here we go

1. North Sydney ->Berowra Waters->Galston->Hornsby->North Sydney

Here is the Maps of the Entire Route


1. Berowra Waters - The spot is quite good just to have a picnic or a day outing. People with boats are sure to enjoy as they have a public wharf where you can take your car and get your boat out , do some fishing and return back home

2. Drive from Berowra to Galston is Scenic and does encourage a bit of spirited driving. Drivers with a bit of passion to enhance driving pleasure with their cars can do so for about 20- 25 minutes of sprited fast country driving , speed limits are around  70 for most of the sections but windows down and manual gears and sweep of the steering wheels will ensure you will enjoy for a fair bit.

3. Galston to Hornsby - The road is scenic and spirited but watch out there a few cameras around. Interesting feature of this section is tight hair pin bends where speed is restricted to 5Km. But a few right turning hair pin bends you can be a bit adventurous by doing it at around 25-30 kms . The left turning hair pin bends are tricky and you do need to slow down to the said speed of 5kms as the car does need a fair bit of space to veer well on to the other side of the road

Overall for a 2 hour time frame of driving this road gives you decent driving pleasure and fun.
