Sydney Harbour Walk

Come along on a photographic tour of my favourite walk around the lovely shores of Sydney Harbour in New South Wales on the eastern coast of Australia.

This special place on the harbour is Cremorne Point - a peninsula of land on the Lower North Shore of Sydney Harbour, separating Shell Cove from Mosman Bay. It's a wealthy residential area where the foreshore has been retained as public space, providing access for everyone to enjoy the area's natural and man-made beauty.

What will you discover on this walk?

Some of Sydney's most stunning harbour views, including the Opera House and Harbour Bridge

Native bushland and lush semi-tropical gardens splashed with colour

Great boulders embedded in manicured lawns

Grand houses and apartments, old and new

Sparkling blue water with tall-masted boats bobbing at anchor

Rainbow Lorikeets, Noisy Miners and Kookaburras

Tiny lizards darting across the path

The gentle sounds of water lapping the sandstone rocks below and ferries chugging around in Mosman Bay

The relaxed ambience of the northern end of Mosman Bay with its waterside promenade and seats overlooking the marina and rowing club

The walking path is paved all the way, and generally level or gently undulating, but with a few steeper inclines towards the northern end. Parts of the path across the northern end of Mosman Bay are uneven due to tree roots beneath the surface.  From time to time there are a few steps up or down to negotiate, usually about three or four steps at a time, but 8-12 steps in a couple of places. A small wooden bridge crosses a gully at one point.

At strolling pace, the walk takes from 45 minutes to 1 hour. It should be manageable for people wheeling children in pushers or strollers. A good portion of the walk, and certainly some of the prettiest parts, should also be suitable for wheelchairs. Cremorne Point Wharf is wheelchair-accessible.
