“Lovely spot”
Reviewed December 8, 2011

I caught the ferry to Watsons Bay, a couple of lovely restaurants in this bay, the trip on the way takes you past a pleasant scene.
Take a walk to the top and cross the road to the Gap, magical then catch any one of the buses to get a tiki tour of Bondi, get off at Bondi Beach

“A must if you have the time”
Reviewed December 2, 2011

AS always a ferry ride from Darling Harbor.
AS for restaurants there are about 4 and mostly very tourist orientated.
See our review of the Tea Gardens - we rate this #1

“worlds best view of the worlds best city”
Reviewed December 1, 2011

A small fishing village that has stood the test of time Watsons Bay is the prettiest place in the world to enjoy fresh fish and chips. The view, particularly at sunset is so special. You are a million miles away from anywhere, but just 40 minutes from a wonderful city. Accessable by boat as well as road, the boat ride is great. Highly recommend Watsons Bay

“A village away from the city”
Reviewed November 28, 2011

A half hour ferry ride from circular quay will take you to the picturesque watsons bay area to sample the famous fish and chips as you sit on the beach snapping a wonderful photo of the city from a far.
