Taylors Bay

Home > Sydney > Beaches
Published July 29th 2010
Surrounding Bradley Head Road on both sides is the extensive bushland, which seamlessly blends into the Taronga Zoological Park. Cutting into the vast expanse of green is Taylors Bay.

Taylors Bay, and Taylors Bay Reserve, constitute only one of the many harbour bays that line Mosman and the wider lower north shore. Around the corner from Cliften Gardens, Taylors Bay offers not only an array of scenic lookouts, but is also one point in a broader series of sites, connected by extended walking trails.

One such walk includes the Taronga Zoo to Balmoral Bay track, starting from the iconic Sydney Opera House and wending its way through the lower north shore's hidden bays and extensive bushland. At 6.8km, the walk will take approximately 3 hours, but there are ample points at which you can veer off at various points in order to enjoy the trendy cafes that provide ample diversions from the established route. Taylors Bay is just one of the attractions that you can come across in the course of your exploration.

Apart from these on-land pursuits, people with an oceanic inclination will be interested to note the considerable array of underwater life that is found in the area of Taylor Bay, spanning from Balmoral to Chowder Bay. Even if the colourful creatures do not hold a particular allure, there is a enjoyable Water Taxi service that passes through Taylor's Bay, allowing you to enjoy ocean travel, if not ocean wildlife.
