Camp Cove Cannon

And Walk






15 mins

358 m Return


14 m

Easy track

Spend some time relaxing and exploring Camp Cove – the first landing place for Europeans in Australia. On this walk, you will head across the northern end of Camp Cove Beach, up some steps to follow an old sandstone cobbled road. This road leads to a great vantage point, with views over the Sydney Harbour to the city. This spot is also host to a large (disused) gun, that once defended these shores. Plenty of history and beauty.
