This little park is situated under the Sydney Harbour Bridge on the city side. Not overly large, it does provide some shade on a hot day. There are also the very good views and you can even stare up at the bridge. There is a...More

We used this park as a resting point after a walk on the Bridge, but found the historical information very interesting and the views up under the bridge quite unique.

At the top of the Rocks, Dawes Point Park is a great place to visit and take in the vista of Sydney harbour. It also provides an unusual view of the bridge in looking under the southern approach, and the bridge structure below ground level....More
