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 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 or Bushcare volunteer.

WHAT'S ON in 2020

National Plant a tree day - CANCELLED

Sunday 2nd August 2020

Due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic across Australian communities and the ongoing uncertainty around potential restrictions and gatherings, Planet Ark has made the difficult decision to cancel official National Tree Day planting events this year. The work that Friends of LCNP has been doing restoring the riparian habitat corridor along the Lane Cove River is important and will continue. We may be able to have some smaller scale planting days in October, if not we will reschedule in the autumn, please watch this site for further updates.

Our 25th Anniversary

We celebrated the 25th Anniversary of Friends of LCNP and the Opening of Jenkins Kitchen, Saturday May 25th 2019
