Owner description: When international director and closet ghoul Alfred Hitchcock visited Sydney in the sixties this was his infamous point of reference. Locals know, and tourists do not, that this is the last stop for the desperate few, it also a beautiful location for a spectacular scenic cliff top walk that begins at The Gap Park.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

Lovely little spot to stop and overlook the ocean or have a nice picnic meal. Fantastic kid's facilities as well.

“Beautiful cliffs. Not too much of a crowd”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2013

Really a nice walk along the coast. Do it. It's another side of Sydney that is often neglected by tourists. Nice view of Sydney skyline too.

“Must see for tourists to Sydney”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2013

A highlight of every trip to Sydney must be the Gap Park at Watsons Bay. See the majestic cliffs, soak in the view of Sydney Harbour and enjoy some great dining close by.

“Free and beautiful view, but beware the idiots who ignore the warning signs.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013 via mobile

Nice view from the top of South Head. Area is well looked after and there are railings in place to stop any accidents... However, everytime I run past, there is always a group of idiots who think a photo right on the edge OVER the railings is a good idea. But other than the minority of fools, it's a very nice place to view the exit of cruise ships from Sydney Harbor. Also there is a well kept track that you can run, takes you from The Gap to Bondi following the coast for about 7kms or so with a few hill climbs thrown into the mix.

“The Gap”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013

I always love going back here even I have been here many times..I love the view overlooking the sea , the hisory abt it, the waves when it hit the rocks esp on a cold windy day, then the overview of the Sydney CBD and Sydney bridge and the whole Watsons Bay with the houses scattered and the lighthouse ..
