Explore the paths of Watson’s Bay’s stunning headland, South Head, and you will feel like you’re standing on the edge of the world. This stunningly beautiful part of Sydney’s east sits at the south-east tip of Sydney Harbour, north of Bondi Beach and east of Rose Bay, and is more akin to a village than a Sydney neighbourhood. In fact, it is Australia’s oldest fishing village, a unique, quiet hamlet that you can get to from Circular Quay by ferry.
Watson’s Bay is a favourite spot for taking part in the biggest of all of Sydney’s events, New Year’s Eve. From here, you can see the fireworks, so bring a picnic and settle in, or grab a ticket to the events at Watsons Bay Beach Club or Watsons Bay Boutique Hotel, such as Taste Orange at Watsons Bay, where you can sample the best produce and wines from the Orange region.
