This spot at the entrance to the beautiful Port Hacking River gives a great vantage point to look across to Bundeena & Jibbon Beach & either out to sea or down the river. You will see lots of boats coming & going especially on weekends....More

Wanted to go for a walk overlooking the water!! So good . You can walk to the left and walk towards cronulla or to the right and go for a totally different walk a bit harder but lovely. A must to take visitors to.
