Always a great spot to visit. Formal and casual dining available with so many restaurants to choose from. Current undergoing some sidewalk and foot path construction. Parking fees along the street and also at the oval.

With a variety of outdoor attractions, the
sophisticated harbour suburb of Mosman has something
for everyone. Shoppers can stroll Military Road for
its unique offering of antiques, designer labels, and
hip restaurants and cafes. Nature lovers can take in
spectacular bushwalks like the Taronga to Balmoral
walk, while families can enjoy snorkeling in the
sheltered beaches of Balmoral Beach or scuba diving at
