Ever wanted to go on a bushwalk around Sydney (because you’ve been hearing that there are some cool places to visit) but you have no idea where to start?
You might have even googled it already but became a little overwhelmed and lost your patience.
Bradleys Head to Chowder Bay walk just might be the one for you. I’ve got all the tips and information on how to get started and what you get to see on the walk.

Bradleys Head To Chowder Bay Walk In Sydney Harbour National Park
Bradleys Head to Chowder Bay walk is within the Sydney Harbour National Park if you couldn’t already tell from the title. At Bradleys Head you get to see views of the Harbour Bridge and there is a nice open area to sit down and relax if you choose to do so.
It was a beautiful walk through the National Park and like most walks I found myself wondering why I had not visited the place sooner.
It is very close to Taronga Zoo in Sydney and you can catch a ferry to Taronga Zoo Wharf and walk along the Angophora Walk to get to Bradleys Head.
Alternatively, you can drive to the end of Bradleys Head Road in Mosman and pay $8 parking for the day. There are limited car spots at the very bottom, however there are small parking bays as you move away from Bradleys Head along Bradleys Head Road.
The walk is 4kms to Chowder Bay, and if you want to get back to the wharf or your car, then of course you have to walk back too. It is slightly easier on the way there (down stairs) then it is on the way back. With good company it’s not a long walk and we had the pleasure of grabbing some coffee and eats at Chowder Bay. Giving you the opportunity to take in the bay for all that it is.
Accordingly to the NSW National Parks website it is recommend that you allow between 1hr 30min – 2hrs 30min and it is considered a Grade 3 walk. By the time we walked there and back I had recorded about 8,300 steps.
The signage on the walk is very clear and easy to follow. I never questioned if we were going the right way. You rarely have moments along the walk where you cannot see the water and both the views at Bradleys Head and Chowder Bay are beautiful.
