MARYROSE02 posted a topic in New South WalesI won't take the quickest route, there or back, as I like to meander through Surry Hills, along Oxford Street, Darlo, maybe via The X, seeing what is happening on the 'mean 'streets', maybe via Woolahra, find my way to New South Head Road which switchbacks up and down through Double Bay, Rose Bay, Vaucluse where it meets up with Old South Head Road (built originally two hundred years ago by one of the British regiments.) then down to Watsons Bay. There are somle spectacular views over the Heads there. It would be a right scenic route, if you did not need to keep all your wits about you in four and sometimes six lanes of traffic. Neilsen Park is a wonderful place too - go there ASAP if you haven't done it yet - the 325? bus goes from the city and/or Bondi Jn? Safe swimming inside the net at the (hopefully not) aptly named Shark Bay, bush setting (largest remnant of bush left in the City on the south side I think?) and historic homes. Definitely my favourite beach I think though I do like Redleaf, Watsons Bay and Clovelly too.
MARYROSE02 posted a topic in New South WalesI'm timid in the surf so I prefer the harbour beaches, Clovelly, or the ocean pools that many of the surf beaches have. They took the shark nets up at Neilsen Park & Parsley Bay back in May & they've put them back for the spring/summer now. It does not matter what you want from a beach, Sydney has them all - big, brash, crowded - Bondi, Manly, Coogee, Cronulla, just as big or bigger but not so brash & crowded - Maroubra, Narrabeen, Long Reef, smaller but still with good surf - Bronte, Tamarama, Freshwater. Family friendly - Clovelly or any of the harbour beaches, Neilsen Park, Watsons Bay, Redleaf, Camp Cove, Lady Jane, Balmoral, Clontarf. Plus all the other ones - Palm, Bilgola, Whale, Avalon, Mona Vale, Newport, Warriewood, Collaroy at the southern end of Narrabeen, North Narrabeen at the northern end, Curl Curl, Queensliff. I've still not been to Fairy Bower or Shelley @ Manly. Little Bay, La Perouse, Bundeena. Cronulla also inludes Eloura & Wanda? I suppose strictly speaking Manly is South & North Steyne and isn't there a shark proof beach by the ferry? Bottom line is, if you can't find what you want in Sydney you never will anywhere else!
