Formerly occupied by six defence bases, Headland Park features military remnants, coastal bush walks with distinctive harbour views and heritage buildings, sympathetically re-purposed by artists, cafes and other local businesses. Download a copy of our Headland Park brochure for a map of this stunning visitor destination as well as tips for visitors, including key attractions.
Just a short distance from Mosman Village, Georges Heights is a hotspot for locals and visitors alike, owing to its café culture, thriving artistic community, rich defence history, diverse wildlife and stunning coastal bushland. A major drawcard is Georges Head Lookout – perched above Chowder Bay, it offers majestic views of Sydney Harbour, encompassing the cityscape and Vaucluse foreshore.
A stunning waterfront retreat on the Mosman shoreline, Chowder Bay is a popular destination for families. Boasting charming restaurants and cafes, it is situated along the scenic coastal walk between Taronga Zoo and Balmoral. Hit the beach at nearby Clifton Gardens and look out for visiting penguins, seals and whales!
With its scenic walking tracks, views across to North Head Sanctuary, boutique cafés and access to beaches catering for naturists, Middle Head offers something for everyone. Meanwhile, the precinct’s decommissioned military infrastructure, from the World War II era gun pits to the notorious ‘tiger cages’, are a source of fascination for history buffs.
The Harbour Trust's vision for the precinct is a public domain and parklands where heritage buildings have been re-imagined and activated for community and commercial uses.
In April 2019, the Commonwealth Government committed $10 million in funding to help realise the Harbour Trust’s vision for Middle Head at Headland Park, Mosman. Now, we are beginning to re-imagine the 10 Terminal buildings at Middle Head in line with the Middle Head Management Plan 2017.
