    Tourdescription About the audio tour

    Walk along the foreshore from Milson's Point to Lavender Bay, soaking up spectacular views of the Sydney Harbour Bridge before exploring iconic Luna Park's local artwork and unique funfair atmosphere. Wander between an Australian bushland setting and beautiful Lavender Bay’s poignant reminders of a maritime boat-building past, until you find yourself in a secret, paradisiacal garden created on wasteland by noted cultural identity and local Lavender Bay resident, Wendy Whiteley.

    Startingpoint Directions to starting point

    Arrive at Milson's Point by ferry from Circular Quay, Darling Harbour or Balmain and locate the nearby palm tree, third from the Harbour Bridge, beside North Sydney Olympic Pool. Or catch a train to Milson's Point and walk down the hill to the bottom of Alfred Street, turning right to the third palm tree.

    Tips Tips

    Places to stop along the way:

    There are numerous locations that are part of the walk where you might linger. Wendy's Secret Garden at its end is a tranquil haven for a rest or picnic lunch.

    Best time of day:

    Lovely during daylight to see the sculptures along the way.
    On sunny days wear sunscreen and a hat and take something to drink. If you have time at the end of the walk, take something to eat as you linger in Wendy's Secret Garden.
    Retrace your steps to return via ferry or ascend from the park to North Sydney railway station, a few minutes walk away.


    Avoid walking back up the steep hill to Milson's Point railway station.
