Bradleys Head and Chowder Head walk is a 3.7km, grade 3 One way hike located in Sydney Harbour National Park New South Wales. The hike should take approximately 1 hrs 45 mins to complete.


This walk is a great way to explore the history of Bradleys Head whilst enjoying the views of Sydney Harbour including the Harbour Bridge the Opera House and a majestic angophora forest. Starting from the ferry wharf below Taronga Zoo this walk follows a clear track along the shore visiting several historic sites (and a cafe) on Bradleys Head. The track then leads around Taylors Bay to enjoy more harbour views from Chowder Head. Here the walk heads up to Morella St. A great way to enjoy this pocket of Sydney Harbour National Park and the sweeping city views.
