Reviewed January 6, 2013

Don't miss a visit here as the views are amazing and it doesn't get any better. Walk around, look at the ocean and enjoy every minute of it.

“Great Ferry Ride”
Reviewed January 5, 2013

We enjoy our trip to Watson's Bay on the ferry. We took the advice of fellow TA reviewers & skipped Doyle's & were glad we did. The walk to South Head was great.

“Beautiful harbour side location”
Reviewed January 4, 2013

Watson's Bay is a gorgeous location for visitors to Sydney. Catch the ferry from Circular Quay and make a day of it. Put on your walking shoes and set out on the ocean walk along the cliff side, then relax with fish & chips & a beer at the Watson's Bay Hotel or just laze around in the park opposite. Magical way to spend a day out on the harbour. Take your camera for views of the harbour on one side and views of the ocean on the other. If you're feeling energetic there are even more spectacular elevated views of the harbour from further up the hill towards Vaucluse. One of the loveliest spots in Sydney

“Nice Spot.......”
Reviewed January 4, 2013

Really a lovely place to visit, hard to believe Sydney City, with all the noise pollution and all things associated with a major city is really only almost over the hill away. The sea-air really was refreshing; sad to know then of some of the suicide history of The Gap.

“Doyles Fish and Chip”
Reviewed January 3, 2013

We went to Watsons Bay as were recommended the famous fish and chips. Great visit, got the ferry across and walked around to the beach which was great to sit and relax on. Fish and chips were great - just watch out for the seagulls.
