Sydney Harbour National Park – Middle Head

Historical Sites and Heritage Locations

Middle Head is one of Sydney Harbour’s seven headlands. Enjoy scenic views of Sydney Harbour from the lookout or take a guided tour of the historic fort and military relics.

Middle Head is a superb lookout spot in Sydney Harbour National Park. From this outstanding vantage point, you can follow the Pacific Ocean to the horizon, framed by North and South Heads. The panoramic view extends to the Eastern Suburbs, Middle Harbour and Manly.

In addition to enjoying sensational views, you can find out more about Middle Head’s military significance. Walk the Don Goodsir track to the 1801 Fort, built in response to a feared French invasion, or explore the tunnels, sandstone gun pits and infamous Vietnam War-era ‘Tiger Cages’. Guided tours of the Fort are also available.

When you’re finished exploring why not relax on nearby Cobblers Beach and enjoy the picturesque cove.
