Nielsen Park

Sydney serves up some of its best outdoor offerings at Nielsen Park, located at Vaucluse in Sydney’s eastern suburbs. Blessed with the glistening Shark Beach and glorious harbour views, Nielsen Park is one of Sydney’s favourite year-round recreation areas.

It’s also one of the most picturesque places for a picnic, boasting three large, sheltered picnic areas. Relax on the grass and enjoy your lunch beneath a shady fig tree. Stroll along the scenic foreshore walking track or explore the area by kayak.

Relax with a coffee at the Nielsen Park Cafe, the kids can swim and build sandcastles before setting out to explore Bottle and Glass Point.
