When international director and closet ghoul Alfred Hitchcock visited Sydney in the sixties this was his infamous point of reference. Locals know, and tourists do not, that this is the last stop for the desperate few, it also a beautiful location for a spectacular scenic cliff top walk that begins at The Gap Park.

Although you have a magnificent view, the place is not inviting as the rocks are dark and the footwalk is not really pretty. Let's not forget that it was a spot where people decided to end their lives.

Whales visible during migration, also a good trail from the Gap through to Macquarie Lighthouse. Can be wet and windy in winter.

This has always been our favourite spot to visit when in Watson Bay. It is very accessible, just a short walk from the pier. We went on a sunny day. The views were awesome and we enjoyed watching the strong waves crashing on the rocks...More

Beautiful views of the ocean cliffs. Walk involves some hills and stairs but well worth it. Took about an hour from the dock to lighthouse and back.

The Gap at Watsons Bay is a beautiful spot, although quite sad. There are certain times of year when you can see whales out at sea, and you can watch Cruise Ships heading out through the The Heads from the higher area at the top...More

Walk through the park from Watson's Bay to reach the seaside and marvel at the waves crashing against the towing cliffs. Stroll along the walking path for different vantage points.
