Balmoral is a nice place to visit - if you can afford the parking. It is probably the dearest parking in Sydney. There are some pleasant walks and if you start at Georges Heights you can follow the path DOWN the hill to Balmoral beach. 2 Cars need here unless you retrace your path UPHILL. The walk along the Promenade... More

I took one of my young grandson here on Sunday. It is a safe beach which can get busy on weekends. Great views of the Heads. Well worth a visit The only downside is the profiteering by Mosman Council. Be aware that parking is $9 per hour. Yes $9, so not quite as expensive as Sydney Airport. Even in the... More

Balmoral is a lovely place to swim and picnic, there is ample grass area as well as shark nets in the water - remember as its a bay there aren't really any waves. There are a number of restaurants and takeaway places for fish n chips,coffee etc

Balmoral beach is my favourite beach. Parking is expensive but just drive into one of the streets going off the main strip and drive up a hundred metres or so and the parking is free, although i know it's quite full on weekends. If you don't want to pay for parking catch a bus. There's a nice little kisok (expensive... More

I lived in Mosman what can I say, one of Sydneys best inner harbour beaches, clean safe, fun. Best fish and chipps right on the beach, some great cafes.

It's a beautiful little neighboring beach, with a family feel. Short walk from busy Mosman. Often crowded on weekends and great spot for lazy walks.

Mossman council have decided to discourage visitors to Balmoral beach. Parking is outrageously priced at $9 per hour. Just to go to the beach!! The water often has floating debri as they allow vessels to anchor close to the swimming areas and it is not unusual to see debri and other matters discharged from these vessels. It is such a...

Don't try and park here unless you have lots of money. Restaurants trade on the snob value and have ordinary overpriced food. Take aways I have used have been disgusting. The water is not bad as it is flushed by harbour tides etc but it can be dirty after rain etc.. It's pretty and there are some nice foreshore walks.... More
