Watsons Bay, east of the city centre and north of Bondi, was once a small fishing village, as evidenced by the tiny heritage cottages that pepper the suburb’s narrow streets (and now cost a fortune).While you’re here, tradition demands that you sit in the beer garden at Watsons Bay Hotel at sunset and watch the sun fall behind the disembodied Harbour Bridge, jutting up above Bradley’s Head.

On the ocean side, The Gap is a dramatic cliff-top lookout where proposals and suicides happen with similar frequency.
