When the city of Sydney is feeling a bit too big and busy, come out to the Pittwater YHA, let the fresh air and surrounding natural beauty of this place charge your personal batteries. Even the local Sydney-siders come to the Pittwater YHA for a break "away from it all".

The Pittwater YHA is reached by water access only. Use public transport or drive to Church Point then catch the ferry or the water taxi as per the details given on travel to the hostel.

The Hostel is located in a National Park and the water supply is only from rainfall. To help conserve our limited water guests are asked to bring their bed lined (top + bottom sheet and pillow case). If this is not possile there is an option to hire sheets at $2 pp. Sleeping bags are not permitted at this hostel.
Prices are per person per night.

I hour bus journey from the city to Church Point, then take the ferry or water taxi to Halls Wharf and 15 minute walk on bush track uphill to the hostel.

Direct bus 156 from Manly or E86 from city in peal hours. Alternatively, from city, catch the L90 bus with change to 156 at Mona Vale. All buses from the city require the prepaid OPAL card.

Last ferry 7pm weekdays and 6.30 pm weekend. Water taxi times vary, usually to 9pm. Check taxi times by phone 0414 983 488 if coming late.

WE ARE WATER ACCESS – YOU CAN DRIVE TO CHURCH POINT BUT NOT TO THE HOSTEL DOOR. Computerised direction systems can be misleading.

Public pay and display car park at Church Point and parking on nearby streets. SUBJECT TO PARKING SIGNS. As parking can be difficult, we recommend use of public transport.

Arrivals from midday until 8pm, or after 8pm only with prior arrangement. Contact hostel to arrange a later arrival time.
