Take a ferry, have lunch at Doyle's and then walk along the water to Parsley beach or to the lighthouse... really very very pretty! Don't forget to walk to Vaucluse... and see the wonderful homes on the way.

Visited on the ferry and it was recommended that we try the fish and chips and we were not disappointed. Make sure you check the times of the return ferry.

I took the ferry service out here and found “The Gap”. Sydney Harbour’s National Park ! I walked to the top took some fantastic photos whilst getting out and about! I would do this again in a heart beat!
