Weekend Walkies - mosman bay
For all those walking enthusiasts, why not try Mosman Bay?


Cremorne Point, Mosman Bay and Sirius Cove are perfect weekend barbeque destinations, but each area also has a history of its own, and make for a great two to three hour walk for those looking for fun things to do.

Cremorne Point and Cremorne Point Lighthouse

Starting from Bogota Avenue, the path snakes its way along the northern side of Sydney Harbour. For those wanting to leave the car at home, there is a ferry from Circular Quay that arrives at Cremorne Point Wharf. On a hot day, stop at the Cremorne Point baths for a quick dip and admire the city from the suburban perspective. The path leads East towards Mosman and at the very tip of Cremorne Point is a small lighthouse (known as Robertson's Point Light).

[ADVERT]Mosman Bay and Mosman Rowers

Follow the path around south towards Mosman and walkers can enjoy a little more local bushland. There is plenty of Australian flora to admire and a few council plaques that detail the industrial history of the area (which is hard to imagine amongst the manicured gardens). As the path leads to Mosman Bay, stop a while at one of the few public chairs and lawns and admire the boats moored in the bay.

After all that walking, you deserve a refreshment! The path emerges into Mosman Bay, next to the Mosman Rowers club. The club and bistro is absolutely charming - heritage, relaxed and offers 'Sunday Sessions' with live music from 4pm til 7pm.

Sirius Cove

The path from here to Sirius Cove is a little trickier and a GPS may come in handy. Continue on past the Mosman Bay ferry and climb the stairs and hill onto Musgrave Street. Cross Musgrave Street onto Raglan Street and make your way down through the bush to Sirius Cove. What is fascinating about Sirius Cove is its connection to some of Australia's most successful artists. Charles Conder, Arthur Streeton and Tom Roberts among others, took inspiration from the surrounds for several of their famous paintings.

See the Mosman Library blog, which details the artists' camp.

A Sunday filled with harbour swims, walks, history, live music and art - what more could you want?
