This walk to Bare Island is thoroughly recommended. Bare Island is a small island which is accessed via a timber bridge. The island was originally fortified to prevent foreign invasion however it has also been a retirement home and is now a museum and tourist attraction (managed by NSW Parks and Wildlife Service). A visit to the nearby La Perouse Museum is a great addition to this walk and a good place organise a tour of Bare Island (available on Sunday afternoons).
