Chowder Bay

An early morning ferry ride to the Taronga Zoo wharf.

Alighting and then walking north along a footpath with views of Sydney harbour, hidden beneath a canopy of Eucalypt trees, keeping pace with the bestest of friends – a perfect Sunday stroll on a crisp winter’s morning.

The stuff dreams are made of.

THAT view

THAT view

The 6.5 km walk ends and Balmoral Beach ( reviewed in 2014) and at every turn truly breath-taking scenery.

None more so that Chowder Bay.

NSW National Parks and Wildlife Services describes this oasis best ‘ It’s ( Chowder Bay )  a popular spot for swimming and picnicking. With plenty of facilities and large grassy areas for the kids and spectacular harbour views, it’s a fun and relaxing day out for the family without leaving town.

From the picturesque palm-dotted beach, you’ll gaze across the scenic waterways to South Head. Enjoy a refreshing dip in the calm waters and unpack the picnic hamper on one of the shady tables. The nearby historic military buildings and Clifton Gardens Wharf now house lively cafés and restaurant’

I was there in August. Though the sun was shining bright the water temperature left much to be desired.

Summer is here, it is time to head back to Chowder Bay with my bestie!!
