If it weren't for the amazing view of Sydney Harbour, Mosman might seem light-years away from Australia's largest and busiest city.
We've included these beaches for you: Palm Beach and Shelly Beach. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Balmoral Beach, Mosman and Tamarama Beach. Go for a jaunt from Mosman to Palm Beach to see Barrenjoey Lighthouse about 54 minutes away. There's much more to do: stroll through Bronte Beach, enjoy the sea views from Macquarie Lighthouse, steep yourself in history at Manly Quarantine Station, and admire nature's wide array of creatures at Taronga Zoo.
