Beautiful views of the headlands going into Sydney Harbour. Also enjoyed learning the history of the place and how it was used to protect against enemy invasion up to the early 1900's. The bunkers and cannon holders are still intact.
Middle Head offers beautiful panoramic views of Sydney Harbour-- one can seen why it was of strategic importance for naval defence as there are views spanning the harbour entrance between the north and south head along the length of the harbour. There's lots of metered parking spaces from which walking trails can be accessed. The Middle Head lookout point is a level walk possible for people with mobility issues. For the more adventurous there are steeper trails that one can take to the beautiful Balmoral Beach.
