Lovely relaxed area. Lots of open space right on the water, easy to access and never really busy. Grab a picnic/pizza/bottle of wine and hang out looking over the harbour.

My favourite park. Not many people know about Sawmillers, just us locals. It is a great spot for a picnic, game of cricket or footy with the kids etc. It is also a quiet oasis in the melting pot that is Sydney. I go there...More
