Milsons Point to Waverton Walk

Got out and stretched the walking legs for the first time today in a little while. Stunning July weather – 20 degrees plus making for tshirt and shorts.

Started out at Milsons Point and followed the various coastal tracks all the way round to Waverton Station.

The walk initially follows the busy foreshore around Lavender Bay with views of many Sydney landmarks including the Opera House and Harbour Bridge.

After climbing up to Blues Point Rd the track descends and follows the harbour around Berrys Bay to Balls Head. This section is not as well known as sections of Sydney’s coastal track like the Spit to Manly, but features some spectacular views of the city and good bush tracks which transport you right out of the city.

Sections of the track have also recently been done up including a reclaimed BP fuel storage site.

For those looking to extend the walk you can continue around the coast and even link all the way back to Circular Quay over a multi day walk. Today I finished up at Waverton Station and caught a train back to Milsons Point to complete the loop. A good description of this section of the track can be found here.
