Nielsen Park is the probably the best all round waterside park in Sydney especially if you have a diverse group with diverse interests and needs to satisfy. Tucked just inside the heads on the harbour, the water gets thoroughly cleansed but is still tranquil enough...More

Facilities are great. Plenty of activities to do; family friendly or alone from swimming, walks etc. It can get crowded but not overly crowded.

A lovely spot - great beach and walks. Great for families and picnics and good easy access. Cafe facilities. Many in Sydney don't know about it but it's a favourite with me.

Gorgeous harbour beach, easy to get to from the centre of Sydney (bus numbers 324 and 325). Bring a picnic or buy lunch from the kiosk.
