Sydney’s Watson’s Bay: To The Lighthouse

Take a tour of Sydney’s historic and picturesque Watson’s Bay area. From Macquarie Lighthouse this walking tour takes you around the scenic peninsula, eventually ending at Watson’s Bay. Watson’s Bay sits on the end of South Head Peninsula, and with views like these it’s no wonder the average local property prices are well past the two million dollar mark.

Starting at Central Station and ending at Circular Quay taking public transport to this area is a good idea (especially over weekends when looking for a park can often be an hour-long ordeal!)
