Bradleys Head to Chowder Bay Walk

Greater Sydney

The views along Bradleys Head to Chowder Bay walk are almost too good to be true. The gentle bush track weaves around the harbour headlands from Taronga Zoo Wharf around Bradleys Head to Chowder Bay and is guaranteed to impress. You can see the Opera House and Harbour Bridge – Sydney’s most famous icons – in all their glory.

Watch the boats glide by from Bradleys Head Amphitheatre or step into the past at Military relics at Bradleys Head. Come face-to-face with wildlife and ancient trees, and stop for a drink at heritage-listed Athol Hall or a Chowder Bay cafe.

The Harbour Bridge to The Spit Bridge walking track continues past Chowder Bay if you feel like a longer walk. Once you’ve explored this exquisite part of Sydney Harbour you’re sure to want to walk more of Sydney's coastal walking tracks.

Fantastic views of the city. Easy Track. There is signage but not enough at times were you are wondering where to go.
