“Nielsen Park is our favourite place for a family picnic. Shark Beach is a great place for the little ones to swim and they love exploring the foreshore walks.”
Sydney serves up some of its best outdoor offerings at Nielsen Park, located at Vaucluse in Sydney’s eastern suburbs. Blessed with the glistening Shark Beach and glorious harbour views, Nielsen Park is one of Sydney’s favourite year-round recreation areas.
It’s also one of the most picturesque places for a picnic, boasting three large, sheltered picnic areas. Relax on the grass and enjoy your lunch beneath a shady fig tree. Stroll along the scenic foreshore walking track or explore the area by kayak.
Stay overnight at Steele Point Cottage and in the morning the kids can swim and build sandcastles while you relax with a coffee at the Nielsen Park Cafe before setting out to explore Bottle and Glass Point.
