Taronga Zoo to Bradleys Head Walk
From the wharf, a stroll up the hill to your right will bring you to Sydney Harbour National Park , for a choice of three walks. The longest takes you around the foreshore, through Bradleys Head to Chowder Bay (about four hours return). The path is mostly good though there are some fairly steep steps. Bradleys Head offers spectacular Harbor views. Once a cannon emplacement, it features a monument to the four Navy ships that have borne the name HMAS Sydney. The park is home to many varieties of wildlife: it is a favorite nesting place of the ringtail possum. Call the zoo for more details.
Start out early to give yourself time to enjoy this fantastic walk. You will look in awe at the Harbour views and the beautiful wild flowers. Take a picnic lunch and enjoy the solitutude. You will not believe that you are so close to the city. It is not a difficult walk and I believe most people could do it especially if they take their time. We caught a bus back to Kirribilli and had coffee and lime tart at a great little cafe. There is a good gift shop nearby! The ferry ride home just finishes the day perfectly. Well done Sydney from a Melburnian.
