Perched on the edge of a sandstone cliff in Sydney Harbour National Park’s Nielsen Park, Steele Point Cottage offers superb holiday accommodation in a bushland environment.

Built in the 1880s as a gunner’s barracks to protect Sydney Harbour, the cottage has been restored to offer secluded heritage accommodation in the heart of Sydney. It’s the perfect place for romantic escapes and weekend getaways; boasting outstanding harbour views of Sydney’s cityscape and landscape that will take your breath away.

Aside from being close to Nielsen Park, including the beach, walking tracks and the Nielsen Bay Café, the cottage isn’t far from iconic Bondi Beach or Watsons Bay. The city, including Sydney landmarks like the Sydney Opera House and Sydney Harbour Bridge are easily accessible from the cottage.

Conservation program:

Fort Denison heritage collection project

Fort Denison is home to a wealth of historic heritage. The Fort Denison heritage collection project invited volunteers to locate, identify, document, conserve, interpret and make accessible the heritage collections in Sydney Harbour National Park. This allowed NPWS to engage with the community and ensure our collections are protected.
