This hostel is an easy escape from the busy city life of Sydney and ideal for groups. A great retreat for friends, families and functions.

The hostel is located on the western shore of Pittwater and is accessed via the Church Point Ferry Service or the Pink Water Taxi from Church Point wharf. Alternatively, you can arrive by bushwalk or mountain bike down the Towlers Bay (old name for Morning Bay) Trail off West Head Road. A one hour bush walk or 20 minute bike ride.

Have the whole property to yourself by renting out the property exclusively. The YHA sleeps up to 32 people. There are 8 bedrooms: twin/double, 4-bed rooms and 6-bed rooms, the verahda has spectacular views over Pittwater, we have a cosy lounge and the large kitechen is very well equipped for cooking homely meals.

Things to do

Bushwalk from the water’s edge to the peaks, to spectacular lookouts to aboriginal engraving sites.

See wildlife. Wallabies surround the hostel. Possums and bandicoots come out at night. Lyre birds, kookaburras, cockatoos sulphur crested and glossy black, whip birds and currawongs are all part of the natural landscape. In warmer times goannas amble across the terraces.

Kayaks. 6 double kayaks are available for hire to explore the bays, nearby mangrove inlets and circumnavigate Scotland Island

Go sailing. The local sailing school, All Sail, arranges sail training and trips on Pittwater.

Ferry Cruises. Church Point ferry for local cruises or the Palm Beach ferry service for a cruise up the Hawkesbury River. Charter ferries also available.

Mountain bike on the Trails in the National Park.

Getting there

To reach the hostel you travel to Church Point, 30 km north of the city. At Church Point you leave all your city stresses behind the second you get on the ferry or water taxi to come to the hostel.

From the city, a direct bus (E86) service takes you to Church Point in the evening week-day peak hour period. Other buses travel from the city (L90 and E87) but require a change to the 156 bus at Mona Vale. Some 155 buses also come to Church Point. All buses from the city require prepurchase of tickets.

A relaxing travel from the city is by the Manly ferry, then catching the 156 bus direct to Church point

From Church Point wharf take ferry or water taxi to Halls wharf then 15 minute walk on bush track uphill following YHA signs to hostel. If arriving after dark, bring a torch to see sign posts and reflective markers. Last ferry 7 pm weekdays and 6.30 pm weekends and public holidays. Water taxi runs to midnight.

By car there is a public, pay-and-display car park at Church Point, which costs $36 per day. Limited free street parking is also available; try Eastview Road. The cul-de-sac end has a walkway directly to the wharf.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A truly awesome place!! Absolutely brilliant stay here! We rented the entire place which was great value considering location, facilities and view! Michael and Sarah are very welcoming and have a positive, down to earth attitude which makes the whole vibe hugely relaxing and enjoyable! The facilities are fantastic - super spacious and professional kitchen. easygoing and practical showers and toilets area with hot water aplenty. Great living room with guitar and all..plus a balcony with ample benches, hammocks and BBQ. We enjoyed taking the kayaks over to the beautiful beach across the way and organised a super treasure hunt around the park! All in all a magical weekend..couldn't have asked for better! Thank you so much for making it such a special one.
