Chowder Bay at Headland Park, Mosman
Located directly on Sydney Harbour, Chowder Bay is a precinct of Headland Park, Mosman –homeland of the Borogegal People.
The coastal retreat is a popular destination owing to its proximity to the water, scenic walking trails and charming eateries; namely, Ripples, Drift Café, L'Heritage and Drift Kiosk.
Visitors can dive or snorkel at Chowder Bay to come face to face with local marine life or head to the netted beach at nearby Clifton Gardens for a swim. If you’d prefer to keep your head above water, you can kayak along the picturesque foreshore. Ensure you keep your eyes peeled for visiting penguins, seals and whales.
Chowder Bay is situated along the coastal walk between Taronga Zoo and Balmoral and the neighbouring precincts of Headland Park – Georges Heights and Middle Head – can be reached via a network of roads and tracks, including the Bungaree Walkway.
Plus: On selected Sundays, the Sydney Institute of Marine Science (SIMS) opens their Discovery Centre to the public. Set within Chowder Bay’s historic sandstone mine labs, the centre is a treasure trove for kids as well as marine life enthusiasts.
