I walked with Justine from Bradley's Head to Chowder Bay yesterday- a stretch of coastline on Sydney Harbour. It has been so wet in Sydney through March but it stayed dry for the morning (although it was very humid).
Most of the walk is through National Park with a combination of bushland & coastal views. Once we got to Chowder Bay we walked back to the start through the streets of Mosman.
Chowder bay is an interesting historical spot. It's named after whalers who made ‘chowder’ from the bay’s abundant seafood. Chowder Bay was opened to the public in 2000 following decades of military occupation. The area features a complex of historic buildings and facilities originally established as a Submarine Miners Depot, and later used as barracks and mess buildings for the Australian military. The buildings have since been carefully restored by the Sydney Harbour Federation Trust and they now house a range of organisations and businesses offering diverse visitor experiences. Chowder Bay, together with Middle Head and Georges Heights, form Headland Park—a new parkland created by the Harbour Trust.
We also took some photos for our two takes blog which mostly feature some of these buildings.. click here if you'd like to see...
