Camp Cove Cannon is a 400m, grade 2 Return hike located in  New South Wales. The hike should take approximately 15 mins to complete.


Spend some time relaxing and exploring Camp Cove – the first landing place for Europeans in Australia. On this walk you will head across the northern end of Camp Cove Beach up some steps to follow an old sandstone cobbled road. This road leads to a great vantage point with views over the Sydney Harbour to the city. This spot is also host to a large (disused) gun that once defended these shores. Plenty of history and beauty.
