Sydney Harbour National Park - Middle Head

Middle Head is a superb lookout spot in Sydney Harbour National Park. From this outstanding vantage point, you can follow the Pacific Ocean to the horizon, framed by North and South Heads. The panoramic view extends to the Eastern Suburbs, Middle Harbour and Manly.

In addition to enjoying sensational views, you can find out more about Middle Head’s military significance. Walk the Don Goodsir track to the 1801 Forts, built in response to a feared French invasion, or explore the tunnels, sandstone gun pits and infamous Vietnam War-era 'Tiger Cages'. Guided tours of the Fort are available between October and May.

When you are finished exploring why not relax on nearby Cobblers Beach and enjoy the picturesque cove.
