Length = 196 m Time = 3 mins
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

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.

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
First established in 1913 and named after Sir Gerald Strickland (Governor of NSW 1913-1917[70]), Strickland House was a women's convalescent home until 1989[71]. 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. For more information, phone Strickland House on (02) 9337 5999.

(1.43 km) Top of Strickland House Driveway to Boomgate on Vaucluse Rd
Path: Easy - Wheelchair accessible - footpath
Length = 97 m Time = 2 mins

(1.58 km) NP Workshop driveway to Greycliffe House
Walk: Easy - bushtrack
Length = 543 m Time = 12 mins
Climb = 12 m Descent = -30 m
Turn right: From the intersection, this walk follows the 'Workshop' sign[83] up the concrete driveway towards the workshop. Just near the fence of the workshop, this walk turns right and follows the wide trail[84] as it bends around the workshop's perimeter (bending left at each corner). The path leads past a view of some houses on Vaucluse Rd[85]. Here the walk tends left and heads behind the workshop to find and follow the 'Greycliffe House' sign[86] along the narrower (but still clear) track. This track meanders over Mt Trefle (the high point, but not very high). Soon the track comes beside Greycliffe House and passes a 'Surviving the City' information sign[87], before coming to a four-way intersection at the bottom of some sandstone steps, in front of Greycliffe House[88].

Greycliffe House Alt = 16 m
Greycliffe House was completed in 1851 by John Reeve, son-in-law to the explorer W C Wentworth. The house was unoccupied between 1898 and 1911, when it was taken over by the State Government and used as a baby hospital and Tresillian mothercraft home in to the 1930s. Many of the plantings are from this era. Today, the building is home to the Sydney Harbour South office of the NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service, and is one of few remaining examples of gothic architecture in Sydney.[89] More info

The path almost immediately bends left and heads down the steps towards the water and beach. Near the bottom, the path heads past the sandstone toilet block[92] (on your left) and comes to a four-way intersection at the eastern end of Shark Bay.
Turn sharp right: From the intersection, this walk follows the flat, wide path, keeping the beach and water to the left. The path soon passes the 'William Albert Notting'[93] and 'Niels R.W. Nielsen, MLA'[94] memorial[95] (on your right) and, not much further along, comes to the front of Nielsen Park Cafe[96].
