Cremorne Reserve : Best Short Walk in Sydney
Cremorne Reserve is a perfect destination for a day trip. The harbourside bushland, lawn and garden areas make the ideal spot for a picnic out in nature with spectacular views of the city and harbour. This reserve has many features including a playground, pools, garden, lighthouse, picnic tables and so on. The best way to fully grasp the beauty of this unique reserve is by doing the Cremorne Point Circuit Walk, an easy 3km walking trail following the foreshore of the peninsula. The trail starts from the Cremorne Point Ferry Wharf with a small detour to Robertsons Point, the southernmost tip of the peninsula. The walking path here will lead you to the lighthouse, from where you can enjoy magnificent views of the harbour and other nearby peninsulas. Even though you can't get into the lighthouse, you can get close to it by climbing down the small ladder, attached to the rocks. This area is also home to a playground where locals and tourists meet, socialize and enjoy some outdoor activities, with lots of shade provided by the trees. Moving on, the trail heads north of the circuit trail, following the shoreline facing Mosman Bay. This is a scenic route with huge mansions and picturesque gardens on your left and stunning view of the Mosman Bay on your right. Follow the path up north, past the Old Cremorne Wharf, until you reach a left-turn leading up to a stairs. From there, the walk crosses a few suburban streets until it ends up at an archway entrance to the western point of the reserve. This route is relatively less exciting but keep your heads high as the view of the Shell Cove becomes clearer as you keep following the trail heading south. Finally, you will reach the historic MacCallum Pool, where you can swim for free against the backdrop of the Sydney skyline and the Harbour Bridge. The walking path from here, will lead you to the Ferry Wharf which will ultimately conclude your walk.
