This is a great spot away from the hustle & bustle of the Sydney city. My husband & I walked from our accommodation in Blues Street Nth Sydney to Wendy's Whitleys Secret Garden after exploring the beautiful gardens we then walked on to Blues Point Reserve; this lovely grassed area we sat & took in the views of the city...

Blues Point is the closest vantage point on the western side that you can get to to see the iconic Harbour Bridge and the Opera house. Scenic and beautiful in any type of weather. One of the best places to spend an evening or welcome the morning. The reserve is good for a walk along the water front!

Had a lunchtime stroll from North Sydney Railway Station, down Blues Point Road at McMahons Point and it takes a 10 - 15 minutes walk to reach the Blues Point Reserve. Saw that it is on the 254 Bus route, if you don't fancy the walk back up the hill. A few good cafes and restaurants are on the way... More

We cycled here over the Harbour Bridge and chilled out on a Sunday with a little picnic. A really great spot, plenty of space, it doesn't get crowded, free parking, a bus stop right there too.

This is justifiably a popular spot for picnics and people who want to sit and relax with spectacular views of the Opera House and the Harbour Bridge. On your way there and back from North Sydney station you will walk down the lovely Blues Point Road with about a dozen outdoor cafes and restaurants. Avoid 30 and 31 December unless... More

We often take a walk down Blues Point Road to the reserve. Great spot to see the harbour, the bridge, the opera house and the CBD. Just can't fault the view. You'll often see weddings and fishermen sharing the space but not so many picnickers. On face value it looks great for that, but somehow when you get there it... More

When finding this place on foot, just look for the apartment building with the radar on top. Clearly a lot of people come here, wide open spaces, and again, incredibly peaceful. Sydney is clearly doing something right for the public and the environment; well done.

Stayed here in 2013 and took the ferry back in 2016. Lovely short trip with really nice park for kids to play in while you enjoy the views. There's a really steep hill if you want to explore further instead of getting the ferry back - worth a walk to get some different views of Sydney.
