Situated at the Watson Bay and famous Doyles Fish and Chips Shop and Restaurant a culinary experience reasonably priced. Views to Harbour Bridge one side and the Ocean to the other from the Gap..Adjoing HMAS Watson Naval Base and famous Chapel. Well worth a visit by Ferry and scenic walk to the Gap

Watson's Bay is a great palce to visit in your Sydney Journey. When you get off the ferry walk up the hill and you get a fabulous view of the sea pounding on the southern section of the South Sydney Harbour heads. The views are wonderful and occasionally you may see some dolphins and whales during the migration season. After you go back down the hill get your lunch from Doyles ( recommend the John Dory anything ! ) and then go for a walk around the bay and have a look at the beautiful old houses that are on the foreshore.

Watsons Bay is more than just the restaurants and pub at the ferry wharf, and the stunning view from the Gap. Take the time to walk down to Camp Cove, a beautiful little harbour beach. Walk around the Heritage Track around South Head, past Lady Bay (nude) beach for a fabulous view out to sea, across to North and Middle Heads and look back to iconic views of the city. There is a lovely little red and white striped light house and historic light house keeper's cottage on the way.
You can walk along the cliffs to Bondi (takes about an hour from here), or walk back towards the city through the streets of Vaucluse via gorgeous Parsley Bay.
Try to avoid Sundays (lots of people around the wharf and the Gap) and sunny winter days are even better!

A great viewing location whether you are at the lighthouse or on the harbour looking towards the bridge and eating your flush and chips from Doyles at the Bay
