Great walk which offers stunning views of the harbour. A good challenge on offer, with some steep sections and a few stairs. Great walk to step away from the typical tourist activities on offer. Start at the Balmoral end and finish with a dip in...More

I love this trail for hiking and running. Like to take visitors here as the views are fabulous. If I have the time I run from Sirius Cove to Chowder Bay. Stunning scenery.

This is part of a longer walking bushland track between Taronga Zoo and Balmoral. The walk is well known to locals but not to tourists. For tourists with a few extra days in Sydney, this is a wonderful option if you are looking for things...More

This spectacular walk of the harbour perimeter is well worth doing. It is best done on a fine weekend when the harbour is active however it can be busy. One should be prepared to come face to face with the local wildlife, lizards, birdlife and...More

Shady walk with views over Saturday Sydney harbour regattas. Delightful cafe/restaurant stops especially at Chowder Bay. Easy to spot bird life from diving cormorants to quirky quiffed Red-whiskered Bulbuls, New Holland Honeyeaters, Yellow Robin, soaring Sea Eagle cry of the shy make and female Whipbirds...More

A great job has been done by the Trust that operates the parkland. Bush paths are great. Natural bushland. Parking, cafes, restaurants, beaches, views. We take the dogs walking here all the time. Highly recommended for overseas visitors.

This is local for me and quite a favourite. One downside: if you start from Balmoral Oval the metal grating walkway is hell for a dog. We go up the back of the oval through a bush walk along the path of a stream. Stella...More

Oh, if you start from Balmoral at the side of the park the walkway up the hill is grated and very uncomfortable for dogs paws. Instead follow the stream at the back up the hill.
