Welcome from the Friends of Lane Cove National Park Inc.

We are a group of people enthusiastic about conservation in our local National Park in suburban Sydney, Australia. Friends of Lane Cove National Park Inc. don't have to live locally. Visitors come from all over Sydney, interstate and overseas to enjoy the peaceful surroundings beside the Lane Cove River. Anyone interested in protecting our native bushland or helping the Lane Cove National Park in other ways can become a Friend.
