Watsons Bay Alt = 2 m
Watsons Bay is a popular spot to enjoy the harbour, Robertson Park and some fish and chips. Doyles offers a formal dining restaurant[1] and the more relaxed fish and chip shop[2] on the ferry wharf[3]. Robertson Park is a large open grassy park with some natural shade[4], a rotunda[5], toilets[6][7], children's play equipment[8], garbage bins[9] and picnic tables[10]. More info

(0 km) Watsons Bay Wharf to The Gap
Path: Easy - Wheelchair accessible - footpath
Length = 251 m Time = 5 mins
Climb = 17 m Descent = -2 m
From Watsons Bay Wharf[11], this walk heads diagonally across the turning circle at the end of Military Rd[12] and into 'Robertson Park'[13]. The walk follows the path diagonally across the open park and tends a little left (straight ahead) at the four-way intersection beside the rotunda[14]. Here the walk goes up the ramp[15] and crosses Military Rd using the crossing[16], coming to the base of the steps (that lead to The Gap)[17].
Continue straight: From the bottom of the Gap steps[18], this walk heads up the steps (or ramp[19]). About halfway up the steps, there is an emergency phone for contacting the police or Lifeline[20], then at the top there is a fenced section of footpath (lookout) and ocean views from The Gap[21].

The Gap Alt = 20 m
The Gap is one of Sydney's most famous ocean cliff lookouts. The view from the track beside the stretch of cliff is simply stunning[22]. The tall cliffs are enhanced by the rock platform and the pounding ocean far below[23]. Sadly, this site is not only known for the natural wonder, but also for the many deaths that occur here each year[24][25]. Security cameras[26] and an emergency phone[27] have been installed, to help assist people considering suicide. On the unlikely event that you see someone in distress, please call the police on 000 and lifeline on 131 114, or use the nearby emergency phone. More info

The path comes to a three-way intersection in a small clearing, marked with a few signs including 'The Gap timeline'[30].
Turn right: From the intersection, this walk heads up the path then steps[31], following the fence and keeping the water views to your right. The path leads past several information signs on local plant life[32][33][34][35] and some lovely wildflowers[36]. The walk continues up the many steps[37] to a rocky clearing[38] near the top. Here the walk tends left and takes the steps through the cleft in the rock to find another rocky clearing and lookout with great panoramic views at the top of Gap Bluff[39].

The Gap Bluff Lookout Alt = 40 m
The Gap Bluff Lookout sits high on the rocky hill overlooking the South Pacific Ocean. On the left is a view to North Head[40] and to your right, looking south down the coast, there are great views over The Gap[41]. There are also distant views over the harbour to the city[42]. This site is significant to the traditional owners, the Birrabirragal people, who once occupied the area - although not at this site, there are some rock engraving still remaining[43]. This is a great place to visit and well worth climbing the steps for the view.

After a while, this path leads down a series of steps, past the side of the 'The Armoury'[62] and a 'Gunning for Australia' sign[63] and comes to a large clearing and intersection with a road (driveway) in front of 'The Armoury'[64]. The intersection is marked with a 'Access to South Head Heritage Trail' sign[65] (pointing to the right).

The Armoury Alt = 32 m
The Armoury was a store building built in 1938[66], to keep defence supplier secure. Since then, it has undergone several changes and is now a popular function centre[67]. The building is at the back of a large grassy clearing that hosts some great harbour views[68], popular for wedding parties. There is also a public toilet block[69] and several other historic buildings in the area, including the larger Officer's Mess[70] to the south-east.

Here the walk crosses the road using the pedestrian crossing[76], then turns left and follows the 'Access to Camp Cove Beach and South Head Heritage Trail' sign[77] down the footpath. Just before the sandstone HMAS Watson gates, this walk follows the footpath to the right and down the steps to Cliff St and another 'Access to Camp Cove Beach and South Head Heritage Trail' sign[78].

Camp Cove Alt = 5 m
Camp Cove is home to a lovely, yellow sand, north-east facing beach. The cove is on the protected side of South Head and is a popular spot for swimming and relaxing on the beach. At the northern end of the beach is a kiosk[88], toilet block[89] and an entrance to Sydney Harbour National Park[90].
The cove was an important location to the Cadigal (Gadigal) people who gathered fresh water, shellfish, launched their canoes and buried some of their people nearby[91].
This cove is also believed to be the first landing place for Europeans in 1788. The name Camp Cove was given during that landing and appears on the earliest maps of Sydney Harbour[92][93].

(1.43 km) Camp Cove Beach to Cannon
Optional sidetrip: Walk: Easy - footpath
Length = 125 m Time = 3 mins
Climb = 7 m Descent = -3 m
Veer right: From the front of Camp Cove Beach kiosk[94], this walk crosses the beach (keeping the water to your left)[95] and climbs up the timber staircase[96]. From the intersection at the top of the stairs, this walk continues straight, along the timber boardwalk[97] that soon turns into a concrete path. The path soon comes to a wide, cobbled sandstone path[98] that leads up a disused cannon[99], gun emplacement and great harbour views[100].
(Retrace your steps back to the main track, then veer right to continue along this walk.)

Cannon Alt = 10 m
This cannon was placed here prior to 1890, along with the rest of this gun emplacement and rifle walls. The emplacement was designed to protect a military jetty and boat shed from the threat of an invasion[101]. The 'Cobblestone Road' beside the cannon was built during the late 1870s or early 1880s and extends from the jetty in Camp Cove up to Hornby Road above. The road was build to carry supplies and ordnance from Camp Cove to the various military installations on south head[102]. More info

At the far end of the beach, the walk comes to an intersection with a couple of other tracks[105][106].
Turn right: From the southern end of Camp Cove Beach, this walk heads up the timber staircase[107], keeping the beach and water to your right. At the top of the stairs[108], this walk follows the footpath up the steps[109] through the open parkland to find a monument commemorating the landing of Governor Phillip in 1788[110] just below the toilet block.

Green Point Park Alt = 6 m
Also know as Laings Point, Green Point is a headland on the inside of South Head. The park (at the end of Pacific St) is inside the National Park[111] and is on sloped ground[112]. There is a toilet[113][114], great water views[115], an open grassy area, bench seats[116] and a monument[117]. The monument reminds visitors that Cove Beach (just below) was the first landing place for Governor Philip in 1788[118]. The park is a pleasant place to rest and is sometimes hired for weddings[119]. A cottage[120] at the top can also be hired from NPWS to make a weekend of your adventures[121].

The walk then follows the steps down between the gap in the bushes[124] and across the grass to find a tall sandstone monument[125] and an information sign about the 'World War II Anti-Torpedo Boom'[126] at Green (Laings) Point, beside the water[127].

Green (Laings) Point Alt = 3 m
Green (Laings) Point is an open grassland reserve with extensive harbour views. Then western tip of the point is still home to many relics, reminding visitors that this area played a significant role in the 1480m anti-submarine net that spanned the harbour entrance, built in 1942. The other end of the net attached to Georges Head[128]. Midway through construction, in May 1942, was when the three Japanese midget submarines entered and attacked vessels in the harbour [129]. From this headland, there are still some preserved parts of the net's construction, including the winch house foundations[130], the anti-motor torpedo boat defensive battery entrance[131] and another battery[132]. There is also a information sign with more details about the history of the area[133]. More info
