I walk here every day on my lunch break....you cant beat it for quiet and relaxation. If you are a foreigner, you need to make your way here for the all important selfie! Can you say Harbour Bridge???

Easy to get to by ferry from Circular Quay. Pleasant spot for a picnic - public toliets are available. Bring your camera as this is a unique location to photograph the Sydney Opera House framed by the Sydney Harbour bridge.

This a great little walk with magnificent views of the Sydney Harbour bridge. If you are lunching as Sails and have 20 minutes or so before or after, this is a great stroll to view our great harbour.

Love this reserve! Unfortunately, at the moment, it's not ideal, as tunnel/train construction is impacting on everything in MacMahons Point.

This small but stunning park is one of Sydney's iconic locations. Take the train to North Sydney and walk down Blues Point Road past its many streetside restaurants, cafes, pubs and wine bar and soak up Sydney's best view. This is a perfect picnic spot....More

An iconic view available here serviced by both a ferry and buses. Worth while taking a book and spend an hour or two here. Not busy and lots of space.
