Wonderful wild oceans!

The cliff tops are so beautiful here and its easy to spot the whales. They could do with having more toilets in the area! Views of the port and access to Captain Cooks landing.

Botany Bay can be eerily beautiful at dusk, particularly on warmer evenings. Taking a walk along the cliffs and watching the sun set is an experience in itself but particularly beautiful at Botany Bay. There are small tracks and some safe places on the rocky outcrops to sit as well as the option for longer walks if one is inclined.... More

This is such a beautiful area and so close to Sydney. It is like another world. There is a park admission fee to go to the end of the road where all the good cliff and ocean views are. But it is well worth it. At this time of year there are whales to be spotted also. Only problem is... More

Got to Bare Island and found it closed. Only open on Sundays :( But you can trek the rocks half way round the island. Went down path to 2 nice little secluded beaches. The 2nd was only 250m walk with stairs down to this really beach. But there was a pipe leaking something (hope it wasnt sewerage) down the stair... More

My wife and I live in Sans Souci about a 10 min walk to Dolls point and we often walk to Brighton-le-sands and return sometimes early morning or evening but it's the smell of salt sea air that invigorates your senses and makes you feel alive,any visitor to our shores would love this walk if they stay at Novatel Brighton-Le-sands,enjoy.

This is the place of the first landing of the western explorer before discovering the entrance of Sydney bay just a few miles north. The place is a mixture of many consternating things: the airport, a busy commercial port, a refinery and a small town but it has also quite deserted beaches hiking and biking trails. Quite interesting.
