Lion Island - Cities, Towns and Localities
Lion Island is located in the Hawkesbury River, just inside the entrance to Broken Bay and is visible from Barrenjoey. Close to Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park, it is managed by NSW Parks and Wildlife. Originally dedicated as a fauna reserve in 1956, it was reclassified as a nature reserve under the National Parks and Wildlife Act 1967. The island covers an area of approximately 8 hectares.

Lion Island is listed on the Register of the National Estate for its scientific importance as a remnant of the natural environment of Sydney, for the abundance of aboriginal sites it contains, and because it provides breeding habitat for a number of shearwaters and little penguins. To protect NSW’s biggest colony of little penguins entry onto the island is forbidden.
