On a beautiful, last day of summer day in Sydney, we parked the car at Waverton Station and walked south, down the hill past a small cafe towards the water.

There’s a road that makes its way around Balls Head, but the bush track below the road takes you past a remnant of (recent) old Sydney, the Coal Loader. It’s a beautiful,easy path with beautiful views of the city. Quite the spot for the New Year’s Eve fireworks.

Some beautiful waterfront along Waverton Peninsular Reserve and Waverton Oval to Sawmillers Reserve (which sadly doesn’t go right through to Blues Point.

Wander along the path near Wendy’s Secret Garden to Luna Park and the Harbour Bridge.

A fabulous walk of about 6 or 7 kilometres. Catch the train back to Waverton Station from Milsons Point Station – just 2 stops.
