What Bay? Watsons Bay that is. Named after Robert Watson (1756 - 1819) of the HMS Sirius, Watsons Bay sits on the end of the South Head Peninsula.
Driving to Watsons Bay through Vaucluse on a lazy Sunday is one way to get there, however, taking the opportunity to see even more of Sydney is even better. Journey across our glorious Sydney Harbour by ferry, leaving from Wharf 4 at Circular Quay and enjoy the 22 minute ride all the way to Watsons Bay.
Swim in the crystal dark blue water or grab a bite to eat in one of many kiosks or languish the day away with a long, long lunch. A walk along the bay is obstructed by magnificent harbour side homes but a walk through the park up to the infamous Gap is a must. The view from the cliff top is spectacular. In fact every view from Watsons Bay is a sight to behold.
Share a meal in the glamorous Doyle's seafood restaurant, taking in the view and sipping on a glass of sparkling wine on a sunny Summer's day... what more could you want?
take the jet boat from Circular Quay - that stops at RoseBay beside the water-plane to Berowra Waters restaurant and gives you a better gander at the Eastern Suburbs expensive houses - because it goes so fast, it's a great buzz to stand at the front deck and shoot the breeze - the kid next to me last time was jumping with joy at the thrill !
