Watson's Bay is a great place to visit to see the 'other' side of Sydney. So easy to visit by getting a Sydney Ferry from Circular Quay. When you arrive there are so many delicious options to enjoy fresh seafood.

We go to Watson's for a nice lunch or dinner, or even just a stroll along the beach. Its always a treat for us to just spend a little bit of time together there.
