EXPLORING SYDNEY: Finding Forgotten Fairyland Pleasure Grounds of Lane Cove – History tour

The leafy bushland of Sydney’s lower North Shore hides a secret – hidden inside Lane Love National Park was once a place of amusement, leisure & a very trendy day trip destination, until its closure in 1970.
