Summary

This walk explores the tip of Sydney Harbour’s South Head. On this walk you will visit several historic and scenic places following a footpath most of the way. You will start at Camp Cove the first landing place for Europeans in Australia and also visit a number of gun emplacements designed to protect the shores from the threat of invasion. Also enjoy the panoramic ocean and harbour views from the cliff line at Hornby Lighthouse. A wonderful walk for those wanting to explore wide open views and get a glimpse of history.
