Took the Sydney ferry from Circular Quay to Watsons Bay. Explored the South Head vicinity and was fortunate enough to catch the rainbow! Overall an easy stroll. Thereafter caught the local bus service 380 to Bondi beach~

Very popular on Sundays with the high quality Sunday Market. Also a great starting point for the South Head Heritage Trail.

Took a cruise to Watsons Bay, stopping off for a couple of hours on way to Manly. Walks both sides of the pier. We went to the left to the monument reserve. Suburb has a really comfortable feel about it.

Coming here by ferry from Circular Quay, it took about 15-20mins for a relaxing ride. As you disembark from the ferry and walk out along the jetty, you will see Doyle's, a popular place for fish & chips. We had the fish & chip for...More

A short and relaxing ride on the ferry (about 30-45 minutes) to Watson's Bay, to enjoy a short albeit uphill walk to the cliffs overseeing the Tasman Sea to the Pacific Ocean to the east and back at the skyline of Sydney to the west....More

Watson's Bay is a pleasant area for walking around the headland, walking down the coast to Bondi, or swimming at one of the harbour beaches. It will be very busy on weekends. Get there by ferry or bus and stay until sunset as you will...More
