Hermitage Foreshore Walk, Sydney

The Hermitage Foreshore Walk is one of Sydney’s greatest coastal walks in Sydney Harbour National Park. It is a short 1.8 km walk and along the way you can soak in the absolute best views of the famous harbour and its precincts. These include the Hermit Point, Queens Beach, Milk Beach, Opera House, Harbour Bridge and the heritage-listed mansion, Strickland House. The walk is not a difficult one but you need to pay close attention as there may be some uneven patches or rough surfaces. The first milestone is Queens Beach and if you're looking for a quiet swim in a secluded beach, check this spot out. Continue along the path and you'll see another secluded beach, the Hermit Bay Beach. The track follows around the beach to the Hermit Point, a grassy area, great for a picnic if you've bought any snacks along with you. Next, is the Milk Beach tucked between Nielsen Park and Hermit Point. It's a great little beach to relax although it can get a little crowded at times. Located right behind the Milk Beach, overlooking the harbour is the Strickland House. This mansion was built in the 1850s and has a rich significance. You can book a guided tour prior to the walk if you want to have a closer look inside. The Shark Beach and Nielsen Park marks the end of the walk. Nielsen Park can get busy during the weekend so it is best to visit earlier in the day. The shark beach has an enclosed swimming area, a cafe for snacks and lunch and a shaded promenade. You can have a peaceful swim here or have a nice picnic if you're up for it. Get fit while clicking amazing photographs in this serene walk along the coast of Sydney.
