Simply a must do when visiting Sydney is the walk along south head. Plenty to see and do along the way and photo opportunities everywhere.

Had a great time exploring the heritage trail with the family and got to see some spectacular scenery. This was a first for us and we are Sydneysiders. Well worth it and easily done with a Pram.

Before all the travel shows featured spots along this route, they really were hidden gems in the city. Mid week you will still find beautiful beaches along the way and at the end of the trip enjoy a cold one at Watsons Bay
