You'll find the idyllic Bottle and Glass Point in the renowned Nielsen Park, in Sydney’s eastern suburbs. In this flat, grassy area, you and your guests will enjoy magnificent views over the harbour.

You can unload a picnic hamper and watch the sailboats gently bobbing the bay, listen to the relaxing sounds of birdsong and water lapping against the rocks, and feel the breeze rustling through the shady trees. Bring your own gas barbecue if you like, or leave the cooking to the experts and head to the nearby Nielsen Park Cafe.

Bottle and Glass Point is one of 3 fantastic outdoor locations within Nielsen Park. These include Shakespeares Point and Greycliffe Gardens.
