  • 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.

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.
