Lonely Planet review
Sydney Harbour National Park protects large swaths of bushland around the harbour shoreline, plus several harbour islands . In among the greenery you’ll find walking tracks, scenic lookouts, Aboriginal carvings, beaches and a handful of historic sites. The park incorporates South Head and Nielsen Park south of the harbour, but most of it is on the North Shore – including Bradleys Head , Middle Head , Dobroyd Head and North Head . Free brochures, including self-guided tours, are available from the park office in Cadman’s Cottage in The Rocks, which itself is part of the park.
