Must be the best and most scenic walk in Sydney. I have done it many times but always see and learn something new.
Sometimes I just walk in and soak up the magnificence of our harbour and bays; othertimes I stop and wonder on its history.
This morning I stopped and read some of the signs installed by North Sydney Council.
For example, there is one sign that describes the history of one of the gardens and it highlights how one couple in the 1950's and 60's turned what been a rubbish dump on the side of the harbour into a magnificent garden. In amongst the tossed mattresses and an accumulation of rubbish and debris, they found an elephant's ear, planted it and watched the garden thrive.
When you do the walk today, it is difficult to imagine that it wasn't always like this but rather it took a lot of human effort and current maintenance by the Council to create such a wonderful environment.
Similalry, another sign shows how in the late 19th century, there were plans to create a massive housing development on the Point; thankfully the Council at the time had the conviction to reject it and we can all be thankful they did so.
The Cremorne Point Reserve is one of the best such reserves anywhere in the world and we should all appreciate it.
