Garigal National Park is the geographical heart of the Davidson electorate and falls on either side of Middle Harbour Creek as it makes its way south from Mona Vale Road, Belrose, down to the Roseville Bridge, Middle Harbour and Castle Cove.
The electorate has great natural assets, including all or part of three national parks: Ku-ring-gai Chase, Garigal and Lane Cove. With boundaries along the Lane Cove River, on Middle Harbour and on the edge of Narrabeen Lagoon there are many surprising changes of scenery to enjoy. There is even a tiny beach at Echo Point in Roseville Chase.
