Spectacular views. An easy low impact walking trail. It’s a fascinating and easily accessed area and well worth visiting.

A wonderful walk not too strenuous and the views are very much worth it. Take some of the side walks to see beautiful trees.

Well worth a visit - views were amazing. Lots of stairs but can do at own pace with viewing platforms along the way. I visited Vaucluse House first and then got the bus to Watsons Bay. Added bonus - I saw whales!

Absolutely great view of both the cliffs on one side and the city on the other. The park is secluded and there are not too many tourists during the week. Be prepared for steps, there are many.

Great spot to visit, we came by car, on street parking nearby was 2 hours free, added bonus for Sydney. Great views, nice walks available along cliffside and plenty of vantage spots for great pictures

Rugged beauty, the cliff straight down to the sea with the crashing waves offers a panoramic view but also the spot where the desperates ended their life. We only stopped for 15 minutes but definitely can spend more time.

Catch a Ferry from Circular Quay to Watson's Bay which takes approx 20 minutes and it is an easy walk through the park, just ask for directions as most Aussies are very friendly and helpful, have fun.
