  • This is a nice quiet spot on Sydney Harbour with a lovely view. The area has picnic tables and barbecues and taps with cold water. Keep an eye on the birds though - they love barbecues too!! Plenty of...  more »
  • Easy hike/walk, for all levels. Venture onto some of the paths less travelled and find the rocks that the fishermen fish off of and you'll see the BEST views of the Bridge and Opera House.  more »

  • A pleasant walk on good trails in this small park which affords very nice views of Sydney Harbour. The Coal Loader historic area was especially interesting. It was quiet and peaceful on a weekday in August 2018.
  • Beautiful reserve of remnant bushland close to North Sydney and Sydney CBD with superb views of the city skyline and out to the west. Plenty of walking trails and picnic spaces but parking may be limited in busy times. Close by is the Coal Loader Centre for Sustainability, a restoration of the original coal loading facility for ships in the early 20th century. There is a small cafe here that is open from Wednesday to Sunday.
  • Great historic reserve which is lovely to walk through in the morning. Has several harbour side and internal tracks to venture through. Glad it is continued to be preserved.
  • Amazing trek! There are so many secret spots along the walk like there was a small rock arch which i sat on... Great for photographers, very picturesque!
  • I do this walk regularly -- its not particularly long or challenging, however the views, and the little surprise spots on the walk are second to none on the harbour in Sydney! We even take the dogs for a walk (at permitted times, on lead) and they love it !
