“Got to visit!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 29, 2013

Watson is popular for its fish and chips!! you can either get fish and chips from the take way or the restaurant!

Watson very pretty also with a few small beaches and a cliff walk which iswell know for its suicides so dont be suprised if you see lots of help signs.

“Worth a stop, coffee and an ice-cream”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 19, 2013

Scenic with an atmosphere, away from crowds, a cozy, residential feel, lovely walk to the Gap with another great view, birds and clean water, I just loved the area. A nice drive on the way to Watson's Bay too with wonderful houses around the area. I was there in autumn/early winter. Enjoyed the sun heading towards sunset, the billowy breeze, the opportunities for photo-taking. A nice place to play around with your DSLR. All the harbours in Sydney are a worth a photo-stop but I especially enjoyed walking around Watson's Bay.
