The Federation Cliff Walk

Historical Sites and Heritage Locations

The Federation Cliff Walk is a five kilometre clifftop walk with postcard views out to the Pacific Ocean from Dover Heights to Watsons Bay.

The sandstone cliffs that guard the approaches to Sydney Harbour are one of the city’s most dramatic features, and this walking track offers spectacular sea views at every step. Beginning from Raleigh Reserve in Dover Heights, this walkway wanders through parklands close to the edge of the cliffs that overlook the vast blue swathe of the Pacific Ocean.

Continue another two kilometres beyond the end of the walk to Watsons Bay, and more sublime views of the harbour. Stop for a seafood lunch in the shade at Robertson Park, beside the pub at Watsons Bay.

Along the way, admire the Macquarie Lighthouse, marvel at the dramatic views of The Gap and take a close look at the 80-metre sandstone cliffs at Raleigh Reserve.
