South Head

South Head is known for its sheer ocean cliffs and military history. But it’s the picture-perfect views most likely to keep you coming back again and again.

The Gap features an unbeatable lookout. Climb to the top to gaze out over the Tasman Sea and Sydney Harbour. If you’re there between June and September keep your eyes open for whales on their annual migration journey.

Walk the South Head Heritage trail, where you’ll find even more lookouts – it’s hard to tire of that panorama. Check out 19th century gun emplacements and the whimsical-looking Hornby Lighthouse.

Swim at Camp Cove or at Lady Bay Beach and stop to see the Dunbar shipwreck memorial and site. You’re bound to be hungry after all that sea air – stop for fish and chips in Robertson park or at one of Watson’s Bay’s restaurants.
