Bradley's Head has a very interesting memorial walk for the ships that have sunk in various conflicts, and the remains of fortifications. There are a few seats that have a shaded spot in front of the harbour - a great place to sit and watch the ships go by.

The walk is a perfect way to see Sydney's best landmarks from the bush, even if you are not interested in the landmarks, the walk is wonderful, and good for all ages due to its relatively flat gradient.

A short walk from Taronga Zoo wharf (around 15-20 min walk) is this stunning place. With a truly one of a kind view of Sydney's Harbour, specifically at sunset. One of the most romantic places I've seen. A must visit for couples.

This easy walk, which only takes a couple of hours at an easy walking pace, has the lot - regular stunning views of the harbour, beaches, lovely well marked tracks through bushland and beautiful harbour suburbs, restaurants en route at lunchtime, picnic areas, and an easy path with few slopes or stairs. You can start this at Taronga Zoo and... More

This is a great place to visit if you want to get some great photos back towards the Opera House and Harbour bridge. Also great to watch the boats sailing by or just chill and lie under the sun. There is small carpark at the end of the road leading to the Head, but you have to be lucky to... More

This is a beautiful walk that takes you from the wharf at Targona zoo right round the heads on towards Chowder Bay. Could have kept walking on the day but the walk to chowder bay and back is a good 3-4 hours. I recommend taking the ferry across from circular quay then taking the return at the end of the... More

Bradleys Head is close to Taronga Zoo and the ferry terminal. It is an easy and comfortable walk with scenic views over the harbour and Opera House. I walked all the way to Chowder Bay, but you can go as far as you like. At Bradleys Head there are toilets and plenty of informative signs to read as well as... More

This trail offers outlooking onto the Sydney Harbour and Coral sea - breathtaking views! The trail is a short 30 minutes comfortable walk - even my 4 years old can easily manage and enjoy.
