Cremorne Point Ferry Wharf Alt = 5 m
Cremorne Point Ferry Wharf marks the first stop on the Mosman Ferry Service. The wharf is home to Sophie's Place cafe, serving coffee, food and drinks[1]. A public phone, public toilets and a children's playground can all be found within 100m of this wharf. More info

(0 km) Cremorne Point Ferry Wharf to Sophies Lookout
Walk: Easy - footpath
Length = 40 m Time = 1 mins
Climb = 2 m Descent = -1 m
From the entrance to Cremorne Point Ferry Wharf, this walk crosses Milson Road to the base of the staircase on the other side of the road[2]. Here the walk turns right to head up the steps [3] past the lookout and monument to 'Sophie Vaillant'[4] to an intersection[5] with a few other footpaths.

Sophies Lookout Alt = 9 m
This unofficial lookout takes in sweeping views across Sydney Harbour, over top of Cremorne Point Wharf and 'Sophie's Place' cafe. The lookout is dedicated to Sophie Vaillant[6], long-term proprietor of the cafe below.

(0.04 km) Sophies Lookout to Robertsons Point Lookout
Walk: Easy - footpath
Length = 199 m Time = 3 mins
Climb = 0 m Descent = -8 m
Turn right: From the intersection, this walk heads along the footpath directly away from the house, heading towards the toilet block[7] and playground[8]. The path leads past this park area and heads into the bush, then passes a couple of information signs to find a concrete rock cairn, built for the 'Clan of Donnachaidh' in 1988[9] (each rock has its town of origin carved in it[10][11]). The walk then continues along the path past a picnic table (with views and some shade)[12] to find the lookout at Robertsons Point[13][14][15]. (There is a track with steps and ladder that continues further down to the very tip of the point[16] for the adventurous).

Robertsons Point Lookout Alt = 1 m
Robertsons Point, also known as Cremorne Point, is home to Cremorne Reserve. At the very tip, visitors can wander down some old steps[17] to the lighthouse[18], and the more adventurous can continue down a rather precarious ladder[19] to the water's edge. The spectacular harbour views can be enjoyed from a number of bench seats[20][21]. A memorial plaque[22] reminds visitors to take extra care and respect the inherent dangers of the rocky coast.
