  • Beautiful landscape view from Palm Beach towards whole North Sydney area.. Parking is just few minutes away.. 10 minutes steep walk to the beach with nice rock formation.. Small waterfall (only in rainy days) between Bach and the lookout.. Beach usually free and best place to relax away from busy area..
  • If you visit the city, or are looking for a great place to unwind, look no further! This is an awesome place that really shows the beauty of Sydney's natural harbours. The views are expansive and the trip can easily be extended by visiting Cottage Point for a nice meal or drink
