Sydney Harbour National Park protects a number of islands and foreshore areas around one of the world's most famous harbours. The park is home to superb swimming spots, bushwalking tracks and picnic areas, which offer a huge range of activities that will have you coming back again and again.
See native wildlife living in rare pockets of bushland once common around Sydney, or take a fascinating walk to explore the park's cultural history. You'll see everything from convict-built buildings and military fortifications to Aboriginal sites and a heritage lighthouse. And with the harbour's staggering coastline creating an endless natural lookout, the park's jaw-dropping views simply have to be seen to be believed. If you're at one of the park's lookouts during winter, be sure to keep a lookout for whales on their annual migration north.
The Sydney Harbour National Park brochure offers park highlights, things to see and do, places to stay, venues to hire and detailed maps of North Head, Middle and Georges Heads, Dobroyd Head, Bradleys Head, South Head and Nielsen Park, as well as information about the Harbour Islands. You can request a free printed copy, or you can read the guide online.
