Warm yellow-colored sheer cliffs and crashing waves dominate the view from Gap Park. Walk along the scenic cliff top and enjoy the views of Tasman Sea and ships leaving Sydney Harbour. Notice the water dragons hiding among the granite rocks and Pacific Gulls, which use the area as nesting site. Go for a fish meal at a local restaurant, perhaps even one were Alfred Hitchcock was a patron during his visit in 1960s.

  • This is one of Sydney’s great suburban walks, around Gap Park and through Watson’s bay. It’s particularly good if you can score a sunny day with light winds.
  • Beautiful view. The sandstone cliffs are amazing. Sad that it's a place where people who have depression issues come to jump off the cliffs. They do have lots of security cameras and also direct phone lines for help at the location.
  • Great spot with a scenic view of the Ocean along with the city...best during 🌅 and sunset 🌇
  • Always an interesting place for walking. Great Harbour views and plenty of sea life around depending on the time of year.
  • Great views and close to Watson Bay for fish and chips
