We watched Sydney Hobart race from here. It's a nice place with lots of opportunities to bush walk. The view here is mesemerizing, Pacific looks spectacular. Visit this place only if you have enough time in Sydney and if u have covered all major attractions!

Lovely quaint bay. A lot of variety to sit and have a drink or something to eat and watch the world go by. Walks to other attractions all close by. Great place to spend a chilled afternoon with the family.
