“There are so many places to walk, swim, tour and sightsee in Sydney Harbour National Park. You'll be almost overwhelmed by the options - right in the heart of Sydney.”
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 from June to November, be sure to keep an eye out for whales on their annual migration. To find the perfect whale watching vantage point and to enjoy the annual whale migration, plan your next coastal adventure on the Wild About Whales website.
