Take a day trip to the heath-covered clifftops at North Head near Manly for unending ocean views and a spectacular panorama of the harbour and Sydney skyline. Situated on the northern-most edge of the harbour within sight of Hornby Lighthouse on South Head, it's a relaxing ferry ride from Circular Quay.
If you're exploring on foot, try the easy Fairfax walk and visit the lookouts. From Burragula lookout you can gaze across Sydney Harbour to South Head, and see a panaroma of the Sydney skyline. Yiningma lookout features views to the north along the cliffs and towards Blue Fish Point. Remember to bring your binoculars if you want to whale watch. For those with reduced mobility, there's an accessible path to ensure that everyone can enjoy the impressive scenery.
If you're feeling adventurous, North Head has some of Sydney's best boat diving sites and is especially popular for drift dives. Explore the remains of historic shipwrecks and perhaps glimpse common sea dragons and the rarer red Indian fish in the sheltered harbour waters.
The ghost tour of historic Quarantine Station is a must-do.
Pure joy as you wake to the sunrise. Awe as you make it to the snowy peak. A sense of adventure as you motor across red plains. The relief of rejuvenation as you wade into an alpine stream. Connection as you taste native, fragrant leaves. A sense of belonging as you return to your favourite holiday house. Freedom as you dash into the waves. Discover the endless feelings a visit to NSW can inspire.
