Nielsen Park Circuit is a 1.8km, grade 2 Circuit hike located in Sydney Harbour National Park New South Wales. The hike should take approximately 40 mins to complete.


With much to offer this walk is a great way to explore the history water views and bushland of Nielsen Park. This walk first leads past Shark Bay – a great place for a swim – with the chance to enjoy the views and grab a bite to eat from the cafe. Then it’s up some steps to visit the historic gun emplacement and onto Greycliffe House. Then you head up through the bush over ‘Mt Trefle’ and take a short walk along Vaucluse Rd bringing you back into Nielsen Park.
