"Church point - More than the launch to Scotland Island"

McCarrs Creek Road begins where Pittwater Rd finally ends, at Church Point.
This meeting point (and if you look on a map, it really is a point) hosts a ferry jetty and the large car park for the residences of the offshore Scotland Island.

Also at this juncture is Pasadena’s – a pretty local restaurant, with large alfresco area fronting a lawn and Pittwater beyond. Popular for weddings, it also has (or had) rooms above. Pasadena is currently closed for renovations, and we wait with ‘bated breath for the outcome.

A few metres westwards, brings us to the ferry wharf, and the charming Churchpoint Waterfront Store, where you can buy almost anything. There are picnic tables outside on the pavement, and the store itself has a deck. It seems to be a gathering area for the locals, particularly those of Scotland Island, who no doubt give the store its biggest trade.

From this point McCarrs Creek Road meanders away to the South, then west, following the diminishing points of Pittwater which finally come to an end at McCarr’s Reserve in a sharp elbow. Great spot for dog friendly picnics.

The real estate between these points is either waterfront, or hillside – all heavily treed, all on steep – to steepish blocks. Very verdant, very lovely. A ‘get into nature’ locale. Not all that practical, especially in terms of small children… and bushfires… but a lovely place indeed.
