South Head is known for its sheer ocean cliffs, military history, and the whimsical-looking Hornby Lighthouse. But it’s the picture-perfect ocean views most likely to keep you coming back again and again.
The Gap features an unbeatable lookout. Hike to the top and gaze out over the Tasman Sea and Sydney Harbour. If you’re there between June and September keep your eyes open for whales on their annual migration journey.
Walk the South Head Heritage trail, where you’ll find even more lookouts it’s hard to tire of that panorama. Check out 19th century gun emplacements along the way.
Swim at Camp Cove or at Lady Bay Beach and stop to see the Dunbar shipwreck memorial and site.
