This easy, breezy 1.8km walk rewards visitors with stunning views of the harbour blue for not a lot of effort. Most set out from Nielsen Park but we recommend going the other way, starting at Bayview Hill Road and finishing up with a leisurely picnic (or a box of fish and chips from the kiosk) at the park.

Along the way you’ll catch views of the Harbour Bridge and Shark Island, as well as historic Strickland House, a heritage-listed Victorian Italianate mansion built in the 1850s. You’d also be wise to pack swimmers and sunscreen, as you’ll pass by a number of idyllic small harbour beaches so well secreted away from main roads that you feel like you’ve discovered something special.
