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 walk is quite easy and is one of the most beautiful walks around Sydney harbour .There are secluded beaches you can stop off for a swim and there are good restaurants at the end to reward yourself.

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.
