Located within Kur-ring-gai Chase National Park, overlooking Morning Bay on Pittwater’s western shore, this property offers exclusive use accommodation for up to 32 people in a mix of multi-share and double rooms. Only 30 kms north of Sydney city, with access by ferry from Church Point, come and enjoy the tremendous water views and tranquil atmosphere at this historic 1920s building. Pittwater YHA is the ideal place for special interest groups, functions and getaways with friends.
Pittwater YHA has a range of 4 and 6 share rooms, with a central communal bathroom facility.
There are a number of twin/double/family rooms which share the communal bathroom.
Pillows, duvets and blankets are supplied. Due to our limited rain water supply, guests are requested to bring their own bed linen and towels. Please do not bring sleeping bags.
We can accommodate groups of all shapes and sizes up to 32 people under YHA’s Rent-a-YHA scheme which gives your group exclusive use of the building, and all facilities, regardless of how many people are in your group.
Pittwater YHA offers the following:
Please be aware that due to our bush location, there is no television at this property and phone reception is limited.
Pittwater YHA is a great place for communal group meals with excellent cooking facilities and large tables on the verandah.
Groups must bring all food with them as there are no shops/cafes/restaurants or opportunities to purchase food items within vicinity of our property. There is a small convenience store at Church Point (next to the ferry wharf) or supermarkets in nearby Mona Vale to stock up.
Pittwater YHA provides a large well-equipped selfcatering kitchen with commercial fridge, cook tops, oven, microwave and all pots, pans and utensils needed. There is a gas BBQ for guests to use. Guests are asked to keep all areas clean after use.
Please keep in mind that you will need to transport everything you bring to Pittwater YHA from the wharf (ferry or water taxi) at bottom of hill – a 15 minute walk (see the Location tab for more information on this).
