Nature and Outdoors

Sydney is a city bounded by the amazing landscape of the Sydney Harbour National Park. Charged with the protection of our stunning foreshores and harbour islands, the park includes towering sandstone cliffs with amazing clifftop views, quiet beaches and idyllic bushland settings. The wildlife is as varied as the landscape with over 150 bird species, tiny fairy penguins and humpback whales that hug our coastline.

No wonder Sydney Harbour has so many things to do and attractions to visit. Our goal is to share the very best Sydney Harbour experiences. From a picnic at Watsons Bay, to whale watching or secret swimming spots you can hike into, please join us on a Sydney Harbour adventure.
