“Great spot - take the ferry to visit mid week.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2012

Take the ferry from Circular Quay and grab some fish and chips from the wharf when arriving at Watson's Bay. Finish off with a walk through the village to Camp Cove and visit the Gap, before returning via the Ferry.

Skip lunch at Doyles - which is overpriced; instead enjoy some fish and chips in the park.

“Great view with fish and chips”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2011

Watson's Bay has a fantastic view of both Sydney and the Gap. We also enjoyed Michael Doyle's Fish and Chips on the Watson's Bay jetty.
