Create an itinerary including Watsons Bay
Sitting at the southern head of the massive Sydney Harbour, Watsons Bay offers both a beach-community vibe and outstanding views of the Sydney skyline across the harbor. Relax in the sun on Camp Cove Beach and then choose from one of two coastal walks. The first goes south, providing views of The Gap, a striking ocean cliff. The second goes north, where you can spot the Hornsby Lighthouse. Both routes take about one hour round-trip. Back in Watsons Bay, stop in a restaurant for fresh fish n' chips before heading on to your next destination. Arrange to visit Watsons Bay and other attractions in Sydney using our Sydney trip itinerary maker tool.

  • Great for swimming as the bay water is calm. Easy to access via the ferry from Circular Quay and there are food options for enjoying fish along the water. The Watsons Bay Hotel fish and chippery is by far the best. Nice park adjacent to the beach which also has public toilets
  • Great place to spend quality time with your loved ones you can reach here by boat or by bus from the city. The boat journy is amazing. You can watch the whole city including opera house, sydney tower from the sea. This place is mesmerizing and the calmness around the shores is divine.
