The experiences are many and varied, including: "the night the Japanese submarines entered Sydney Harbour; how residents obtained household supplies; the Diary at Beauty Point, riding billy-carts down Mosman's treacherous streets; tempting sharks by swimming at Sirius Cove."
The time of tempting sharks may have long passed, but Sirius Cove Reserve still has several features to attract visitors.
In a suburb famous for its waterfront, Sirius Cove beach is distinguished by a unique connection to the history of both Mosman and Sydney. HMS Sirius of the first fleet was careened in 1789 and since that time, Sirius Cove has been associated with maritime activities.
With all the convenient amenities, including restrooms and a newly constructed playground, Sirius Cove beach is also friendly to man's best friend. From Monday to Friday, dogs are permitted to go off their leads in the reserve. On weekends, these times are restricted to the period before 9am and after 4pm.
