WATSONS BAY At A Glance
Watsons Bay is as much a holiday destination as it is a place to call home. At the end of South Head Peninsula, Watsons Bay is surrounded by the calm waters of Sydney Harbour on one side and the emerald Pacific Ocean on the other. This historic and quaint seaside neighbourhood is all about fine dining and sun-filled days.
Fine dining, Sydney Harbour National Park and water access.

A seaside destination, Watsons Bay is an elegant neighbourhood enjoyed by locals and international visitors alike. At Watsons Bay you can enjoy the calm waters of Watson Bay Baths, indulge in world-class seafood at Doyles, and wander the trails looping around South Head that boast breathtaking views of Sydney Harbour.
Originally an isolated fishing village, Watsons Bay attracts the crowds. During the summer months there are hidden beaches to explore. It’s also the perfect vantage point to enjoy the start of the Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race on Boxing Day and Sydney’s famous fireworks displays on New Year’s Eve.
Fine dining is a way of life here. Dunbar House, Tea Gardens and Watsons Bay Beach Club sit alongside their famous neighbour, Doyles. For a more casual affair, locals picnic at Green Point Park and Robertson Park, which also plays host to local community events.
On the eastern side is The Gap Park, steeped in history. The coastal walk has incredible views which draws tourists to the area by the bus load.
