This peaceful spot is hidden in the bush and looks out across the Harbour. Some of the bush tracks can be steep but well worth it for the view.

The perfect spot to have a family picnic and watch the fireworks. The park has partial views of the harbour and is often full by afternoon.


Observatory Hill Park

Find a spot on the grass to take in the view! Be mindful that some of the large trees will block the view so it is best to get in early when it opens at 12pm.
