The Hermitage Foreshore Track is located in the Sydney Harbour National Park, an easy one hour walk with stunning coastal views of Sydney’s harbour and islands. Start either at Bayview Hill Road or Nielsen Park in Vaucluse, and be sure to take your time and stop at the lookouts and photo spots along the way. If you begin at Nielsen Park, you can enjoy Shark Bay beach which also boasts a cafe. Milk Beach is located in the middle of the walk, and is a secluded sandy beach only 50m long. You’ll also pass the beautiful Strickland house and tiny Hermit Bay beach. The last place to get your feet wet is Queens Beach with great views across the harbour and Sydney’s city skyline. With some of the best views of the Harbour Bridge as well as of Shark Island, it’s a relaxing and photogenic walk, perfect for a weekend off.
