When international director and closet ghoul Alfred Hitchcock visited Sydney in the sixties this was his infamous point of reference. Locals know, and tourists do not, that this is the last stop for the desperate few, it also a beautiful location for a spectacular scenic cliff top walk that begins at The Gap Park.

Walk through the park from Watson's Bay to reach the seaside and marvel at the waves crashing against the towing cliffs. Stroll along the walking path for different vantage points.

You can walk the trail along this area and learn the stories about how it was formed, the ship wrecks, the many suicides, etc. Saw a jet boat ride to this place.

This is a lovely place to look out at the sea. Just a short walk from the ferry stop, buy food from Doyle's if you like seafood and take it here and eat it looking out to sea. Peaceful.

This was a highlight of our 10 days in Sydney. The park is a well tended and protected walkway with impressive views of the ocean. I would imagine during the season, whale watching would be delightful with binoculars. It is a short walk from the...More
