One of the many sights you can visit when you find yourself in or around Sydney. Enjoy the tranquil setting, listen to the native birds calling from the bushland setting, and revel in the warm waters of this harbor cove. Sydney has many, many other...More

Catch a ferry from Circular Quay to Watson's Bay then approx. 10 min walk to Camp Cove! Scenic but relatively easy walk! The track is a loop so you begin at Camp Cove and make your way to Hornby Light house and back.

We rode our bikes up to the lookout and it was definitely worth it - the views were stunning and we even spotted some whales! Would recommend for first time visitors to Sydney or even returning.

Almost every Sydneysider knows about South Head and Watson's Bay, but I would have to suggest that North Head probably takes the prize as a landmark destination worth visiting. The tourist trail wends its way across the top of Sydney's north head. The path is...More

This is a nice place to escape the busy city life of Sydney. There are a lot of cliffs and you can see the Sydney Skyline. If you have a GoPro and a Pole you can take some really cool Selfies.

A 40-minute ferry ride from Circular Quay will take
you to the famous northern beach of Manly. The beaches
here are perfect for learning to surf or spending the
day sun-tanning. The walk from Spit Bridge to Manly is
a great way to experience Sydney Harbour Bay and the
Australian bush land. Along the foreshore, there are
plenty of watering holes and wine bars with excellent
cuisine. There are plenty of kid-friendly restaurants
