Catch a ferry at Church Point. Enjoy beautiful Pittwater from the ferry, or get off on Scotland Island or the Western Foreshore of Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park.
A ferry departs from Church Point hourly. Plan your trip: check the ferry timetable. Or book a ferry and explore Pittwater on your own schedule.
Scotland Island stops: Bell, Carols, Eastern and Tennis Court Wharves. North facing Tennis Wharf is a perfect spot for a picnic.
Western Foreshore stops include: Elvina Bay, Halls Wharf (access to Morning Bay), and Lovett Bay, made famous by Susan Duncan's book Salvation Creek.
The Church Point Ferry Service is an essential part of the Pittwater community. Residents living offshore rely on our regular schedule, including primary aged children. We operate a daily run to and from Newport School. We also deliver newspapers to wharves in the morning, and mail in the afternoon.
Ferries and the environment
Along with other sustainability initiatives, in 2011 the Church Point Ferry Service started a Green Ticket program. This was the first of its kind in the NSW public transport system.
83% of regular passengers participate. To date, through the Green Ticket program, our passengers have removed 177 tonnes of greenhouse gas from the atmosphere and planted 177 native trees.
