Time Out says

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.

Should you pack snacks? Yes, it’s picnic heaven. However, the kiosk at Nielsen Park is open daily and you’ll be pleased to find a freezer full of icy poles to help you cool off.
