Great walk, with lots of stairs....

Beautiful views, swimming available at both Mosman and Chowder Bay. There is a lot of steps but the view from the top is faboulous.

Fantastic walk - trail starts immediately to the right when you get off ferry at Taronga Wharf. Taylors Bay and Chowder Bay are spectacular- take swimming gear at there is a netted cove at Clifton Gardens / Chowder Bay. Short cut back over the headland to Taronga.

This is a terrific walk on a good day. Moderate fitness only, and fairly strong shoes, but it's not rough. Great views of Sydney Harbour and the Heads.

This can be a long or a short walk. We start at Middle Head Road (or you can start at Balmoral Beach) and take the pretty path to Chowder Bay. It is then possible to walk to Bradley's Head and round to the zoo. Unfortunately you can't go further at the moment as the next bit of path is closed... More

This is a good walk through some interesting and at times hilly country. The scenery is at times sensational and it is a reasonably well sheltered track.

Nice area yo walk in and get a feel for what the natural state of the land was in this area. There are a few others trails in the area too. We walked in our walking shoes but guess other sensible footwear would suffice.

This is a fun walk with sight to delight. There are a lot of stars. If you are keen on some exercise then this is as good as it gets.

This is a wonderful classic Sydney harbour walk along a well formed track (with steep stairs up the hill from Balmoral to start) offering superb and often elevated harbour views through Sydney Heads and across to Manly and the Eastern Suburbs and extensive sections of pristine bush. Georges Heights and Chowder Bay have cafes and restaurants and Clifton Gardens (at... More

Pleasant walk through picturesque and historic area. Mostly level walking, so not difficult. A detour to Middle Head fortifications is a must. Chowder Bay particularly interesting.
