So, if you get the chance to explore the park, pls do so. Pick a great weather day, hire a boat, and cruise around finding the quiet little private spots like Athol Bay and moor up in front of Taronga Zoo. The whole park from what I have seen is well kept, the Harbour is a wonderful place to just... More

So much to discover, with ferries going everywhere and anywhere. You might see some sharks swimming about

As a city, Sydney is not my favourite, but is enhanced by the history on one hand and the wonderful parks and walks in places such as these parks.A city has to be more than glass towers and these parks are just wonderful to escape to.

If you want to get a food feel of Syney Harbour and its souroundings this is the place to go. On a sunny day it could not get any better.

This is almost a hidden secret - everyone has heard of Sydney's famous beaches but few seem to know of parks such as these. There are several locations which together form the Park but there are many options of either seeing local fauna, wildlife , perhaps even have a swim at one of the several beaches.

When planning our trip to Sydney we spoke about where we would visit, on mentioning Bondi beach, an Aussie colleague advised us to give it a miss and visit Manly instead. Boy, was he right! We discovered a beautiful little suburb with superb beaches and the Sydney Harbour National Park. We started our walk at Manly Surf Beach and contiued... More

One of the most beautiful harbours in the world. Numerous bushwalks around the shoreline with stunning views. Many islands to visit. Convict built forts, historic mansions, sandy beaches, remote islands all close to the CBD

I launch from Neutral Bay but the idea of the trip involves turning Fort Denison, Clark Island and then Shark Island before paddling to Chowder Bay for coffee and swim. Come back by Bradleys Head and any of the bays on the way. It takes 4 hours depending on how slow you sip your coffee! Visit a mega liner passing... More
