What You Can Expect
Leading your small group is a local guide who is well-versed in the area. On your easy walk, meander down the Hermitage Track to Watsons Bay as your guide shares insider tips about the area. The path affords views of Sydney Harbour Bridge and the Sydney Opera House across the harbor. Snap gorgeous photos and experience these iconic sights from an entirely new perspective.
The Hermitage Track also holds its own appeal. Admire the grounds of Strickland House, climb ancient toppled tree trunks, and wind past native flora. Along the way, stop at Parsley Bay, a favorite of local families, where you can walk a brief bushland circuit that showcases a waterfall spilling from the head of a gully. Continue on to Nielsen Park, and admire the turquoise waters of Shark Beach.
Before heading back across the water on the ferry, experience another local favorite—fish and chips at Doyle’s at Watsons Bay. This Sydney institution, family owned for five generations, dishes out fresh Australian seafood against the backdrop of the stunning blue waters of the bay. Once you’ve had your fill, return by ferry from Watsons Bay to the heart of Sydney, with a new appreciation for the skyline you admired from across the harbor.
This tour was amazing and our group of eight highly recommends it. Our guide Bell was superb and the scenery was breathtaking with views of Sydney Harbour not usually seen by tourists. We loved discovering the beautiful bays and learning about the history of the area, not to mention Bell's delicious home made muesli bars! The tour was the highlight of our time in Sydney.
The Sydney Harbour National Park Walking Tour is a 'must do' for all Sydneysiders, Interstate and International visitors. Starting at Circular Quay, you catch the ferry across one of the most beautiful harbours in the world to Rose Bay. From there you start the walk, while an expert guide informs you of local history. Continuing to walk you join the Hermitage Foreshore Track, which has to be one of the most spectacular walks in Sydney, taking in all the harbour views, Nielsen Park and Parsley Bay. Reaching the end at Watsons Bay for a much deserved fish and chip lunch at Doyle's at Watsons Bay.
The walk is very well organised and our guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. I would recommend this walk to all who enjoy the outdoors, nature and of course, waking.
