Chowder Bay - Mosman


Named after the whalers who made chowder from the bay's abundant seafood, Chowder Bay is located on the southern side of Sydney's Middle Head peninsula.

Nestled between stunning harbourside frontage and a steep expanse of natural bushland, Chowder Bay is the perfect spot for a family-friendly day trip. Wander around the historic buildings or spend the afternoon swimming, snorkelling, kayaking, or bushwalking. You can hire everything you need for a day on the water from Plunge Diving.

Chowder Bay offers some lovely waterside eating options. Stop by Bacino Bar and Kiosk for coffee or a light meal or indulge in fine dining at Ripples Restaurant on the deck of the former Submarine Miner's Depot.

A great way to visit Chowder Bay is to incorporate it into a walk between Taronga Zoo and Balmoral Beach. The walking tracks offer spectacular harbour views and scenic bushland settings.
