We enjoyed a day outing at Watsons Bay which was absolutely gorgeous on a bright autumn morning. It’s a easy ferry ride from the city with numerous ferries running throughout the day and evening. Watsons Bay offers plenty of attractions and excellent cafes and restaurants. The small harbour beach is delightful and the historical suburb a must to stroll around including a walk up to the Gap.

This is a lovely area accessible by bus or ferry. We took the ferry from Circular Quay and enjoyed the ride across the harbour. Once you get here, there are restaurants, cafes and walks. We did the South Head walk and then looked at the gap before taking the bus back to Rose Bay.

Watson’s Bay is absolutely gorgeous. It’s a beautiful Bay with Doyle’s Restaurant, the fabulous hotel and Dunbar House. There’s also the takeaway cafe for Doyle’s fish and chips. It has a lovely tree lined park up to the Gap for spectacular view’s. There’s great coastal walks. Make a day of it, have Devonshire tea at Dunbar House and lunch at the boutique hotel or Doyle’s. You can swim and snorkel in the bay. Take a ferry for the perfect day out.

There are many ways to get to Watson’s Bay but once there do the South Head Heritage Walk. Starting in Camp Cove this lovely easy walk gives you beautiful coastal views, military remains including cannons, a magnificent lollipop looking lighthouse, an old cottage plus a beach if you feel like a swim. But be warned, this is a nudist beach so only go if you are willing to go naked. Depending on the time of year you may even be lucky to see whales. It is only 1km so you can do it in under an hour but take your time and a picnic lunch and enjoy.
