The weather may be cooling but the water temperature is still in the 20s and the crowds are gone. Best time of the year to swim, walk and enjoy the last of a long summer.

Now...I know shark nets are a bit controversial, but I am terrified of the sea, so I felt really comfortable swimming in the deep ocean here :)

Every tourist's nightmare - sharks! Ease your mind by bathing in the shark net pool at Nielsen Park. There's a kiosk to buy ice creams, coffees and snacks or BYO picnic. Such a gorgeous spot to watch the ferries and sailboats go by.

When people think of Sydney beaches it's often only Bondi, Manly etc but the harbour beaches also are amazing. Nielsen Park is one of them. Very tranquil and surrounded by bush setting and some very good houses.

Hidden in the back streets of Vaucluse is Nielsen park. Just relax on the beach ,swim in the shark nett protected pool or stroll along the walkways and take in the sights.
