Climb = 0 m Descent = -7 m
From the lower end of the car park on Greycliffe Ave, this walk heads around the gate and along the sealed path (driveway) towards the water, passing the 'Sydney Harbour National Park' sign[1]. After ≈50m, the path leads to a four-way intersection just past the garbage bins.
Continue straight: From the intersection, this walk heads towards the water following the wide path[2]. The path soon bends left (near the toilet block, on the right[3]) and heads behind the beach, past the large information sign[4]. Soon the path heads over the 'Dressing Pavilion' tunnel[5] and, ≈50m later, comes to the front of the Nielsen Park Cafe[6] with it's great water views[7].

Shark Bay Alt = 2 m
Located at the northern end of Nielsen Park, this beach faces north across Sydney Harbour. The sandy beach offers a swimming net enclosure[8], public toilets[9][10] and change rooms[11], showers[12] and is a popular place for people to simply relax. The beach is a focal point of Nielsen Park and also boasts a cafe[13]. Protected by the harbour, there is no surf at this beach. The beach is not patrolled. This is a lovely spot, with natural shade not far from the beach.

Nielsen Park Cafe Alt = 3 m
Open 8-5 daily, this historic cafe offers inside seating and a range of meals, including breakfast, sandwiches and hot food. This is one of a number of buildings in Nielsen Park which are available for functions. For further enquiries, contact 9337 1574. More info

(0.2 km) Nielsen Park Cafe to Degaussing range
Walk: Easy - footpath
Length = 154 m Time = 3 mins
Climb = 12 m Descent = 0 m
Continue straight: From Nielsen Park Cafe, this walk heads the short distance along the path in front of the cafe and behind the beach (keeping the water to your right)[14]. The path heads past the 'William Albert Notting'[15] and 'Niels R.W. Nielsen, MLA'[16] memorial[17] (on your left) to soon find a four-way intersection (at the base of some steps) at the eastern end of Shark Bay[18].
Continue straight: From the intersection, this walk follows the 'Hermitage Foreshore Walking Track' sign[19] up the stairs. The path soon flattens out though the open grassy area, and heads up a few more steps to come to an intersection with a road (driveway) next to the fenced degaussing range (on your right)[20].

Degaussing range Alt = 14 m
This degaussing range, found at Steele Point, was constructed in 1960 and is still operated by the Royal Australian Navy today. Degaussing is the process of removing (or at least reducing) a magnetic field. This degaussing range services four areas in the harbour (about 500m from the building)[21], where metal ships passing over will be automatically de-magnetised[22]. Why? Mostly to prevent the triggering of seabed mines[23]. More info

(0.35 km) Degaussing range to Steele Point Gun Emplacement
Optional sidetrip: Walk: Easy - bushtrack
Length = 52 m Time = 1 mins
Climb = 0 m Descent = -7 m
Turn sharp right: From the intersection, this walk heads up the driveway, keeping the degaussing range fence just to your left[24]. At the end of the driveway, the walk heads across the grass[25] to find the Steele Point Gun Emplacement[26] just behind the degaussing range. Beware of the unfenced drop into the emplacement[27].
(Retrace your steps back to the main track, then turn right to continue along this walk.)

Steele Point Gun Emplacement Alt = 7 m
Construction of this initial emplacement took about three years and was completed in 1874[28]. The sandstone pit once had a steel dome (to protect from shells) and was part of a series of gun emplacements protecting from the threat of invasion. Today, you will find a series of tall sandstone channels[29] and the circular pit where the main gun once stood[30]. A set of un-railed steps leads into the pit - please take care in the area, as the pit is not fenced.

Steele Point Cottage Alt = 16 m
Why not make a weekend of it? Built in 1880, this one-time gunners' barracks has been restored as a one bedroom getaway. Managed by NPWS, you can hire this cottage (found on Steele Point) from $330 per night (two night min). Great for a romantic weekend away for two. More info

The track leads past a couple of handrails and a sandstone overhang[40] and, at the bottom of some steps, comes to a minor intersection, marked with warning sign[41] (on your right). (This short side track leads to an unfenced view of the harbour[42] - heed the warning). The walk continues along the main track, past another handrail section with more views[43] and ≈90m later, the track heads down some steps to the foreshore with some interesting rock formations[44]. From here, the walk follows the handrail past the small inlet[45] and along the coastline.

(The track to the left leads into the northern end of the Strickland House property). Here, the walk turns right and heads down the hill[50], where the track then tends left and down some steps[51] onto the northern end of Milk Beach[52].

Milk Beach Alt = 2 m
Milk Beach is a small, secluded, sandy beach in Sydney Harbour National Park, on the inside of South Head. In the 'back yard' of Strickland House[53], this beach is a memorable spot along the Hermitage Foreshore Walk[54]. The beach is about 50m wide and faces south-east. The views across the water to the city and to Shark Island are great[55]. A seat on the grassy clearing behind the beach makes a very inviting offer to sit[56] and enjoy for a while. This is also a great place to get the toes wet.

Walk: Easy - bushtrack
Length = 97 m Time = 2 mins
Climb = 9 m Descent = -2 m
Veer left: From Milk Beach, this walk heads to the south-eastern end of the beach[57] (the far end, with the water on your right), and heads up the steps to the bench seat[58] and a large 'Hermitage Foreshore Walk' sign[59] behind the beach. Here, the walk turns right and heads up the stone stairs[60] and past a NPWS arrow marker [61] to find a large grassy clearing[62] and some picnic tables[63] at the back of Strickland House[64].

Strickland House Alt = 14 m

Today, the house and gardens are hired out for private functions, however, if just walking through, this is a great spot to take a break, enjoy the views and rest from the walk.

From here, the walk continues along the main track for another ≈20m to a three-way intersection (with sandstone steps on the left[76] that lead up to Tingara Ave).
Continue straight: From the intersection, this walk heads down the few sandstone steps[77] (keeping the water to your right) and then heads through a grassy section behind the houses[78]. The track soon heads down some steps (with a handrail) then mostly up the next set of stairs to turn right onto a large rock with a handrail[79]. Soon, the walk heads past a sandstone wall and down the brick then sandstone steps[80], to find a bench seat[81] and fenced Ralph Newboult Lookout[82].

Ralph Newboult Lookout Alt = 3 m
This lookout boasts great views as well as being home to a bench seat and memorial to Ralph Newboult[83]. The lookout is a shaded spot with great views across the harbour to the city.

Hermit Bay beach Alt = 4 m
This secluded beach in Hermit Bay (just north of Hermit Point) is home to a 40m-wide, east facing sandy beach.

Hermit Point hosts a grassy open area and is surrounded by a sandstone sea wall[98]. The sea wall has been shaped to host some boat pens[99], a launch[100] and a timber wharf[101]. The area is now protected as part of the Sydney Harbour National Park. Here, you will find a number of picnic tables[102], a small sandstone cave[103], natural shade and some great water views[104]. The headland, bay and ultimately the Hermitage Foreshore Walk, derive their names from the large home behind this point. The Hermitage was originally built in 1840 by Alexander Dick, then in the 1870's, Edward Mason Hunt undertook some significant renovations, turning it into a Victorian Rustic Gothic house[105].
