Chowder Bay

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

Nestled between the harbour and a steep expanse of bushland, Chowder Bay is the perfect spot for a day trip. Wander around the historic buildings or spend the afternoon swimming, snorkelling, kayaking, or bushwalking. Hire everything you need for a day on the water from Plunge Diving.

Chowder Bay offers some lovely waterside eating options. Stop by Bacino for coffee or a light meal, graze on a share plate at East Coast Lounge wine bar, or indulge in fine dining at Ripples Restaurant.

A great way to visit Chowder Bay is to incorporate it into a walk between Taronga Zoo and Balmoral Beach. The Bungaree Walkway (dedicated to historic indigenous leader Bungaree) leads up to Georges Head Lookout and offers spectacular harbour views and scenic bushland settings.
