With my in-laws visiting Sydney and we took the ferry to Watsons Bay. Ate at Doyle's and then decided to walk the South Head Heritage Trail. It's a beautiful , easy walk. Wonderful views across the bay from the rocky cliffs. Beautiful candy stripped lighthouse out at the end.
The stalls sold a variety of things like children's clothes, flowers, plants, reflective vests for cyclists, handphone covers, belts, etc. Largely things that I don't need. The area around the market is a little more interesting with an interesting bookshop near the bus stop across the road. The cafes in the area close quite early at 3.30pm. Maybe it's better to go on Saturday morning. But if you have no time you can skip this place.

A ferry ride from circular quay takes you to Watson's bay wharf after a couple of drop offs on the way. This is not too strenuous a walk although a tour group ahead of us quickly spread out in the warm Sunshine with the steady climb to higher ground. There is lots to see on this walk - small Beaches, great viewpoints and a bit of military history. Possible to short cut and curtail the tour around the peninsula at any time.

Love love love Redleaf. Hard to get a comfy spot to lay your stuff sometimes. Came one late arvo and under the trees were stink bugs everywhere! Not sure where they've come from. It's a shame the cafe doesn't stay open later though.

When traveling across to Manly by ferry you get a fantastic view of the lighthouse as you pass the heads. The lighthouse stands out with its red and white vertical striping perched on the south head entrance to the harbour. A great landmark on Sydney Harbour.

Right next to the shops and bordering the harbour is a delightful park with an excellent kids play area. As a big family we often have summertime picnics here Fortunately not too many people know about this gem so we never have trouble parking reasonably close Kids love playing soccer and cricket here too

Sydney's Oxford Street is an historic thoroughfare linking Sydney to the famous Bondi Beach and other eastern suburbs. It is home to the 170-year-old Victoria Barracks, one of the finest examples of Regency-style colonial architecture in the world, the heritage listed Paddington Town Hall, and the Paddington Public School, which was built in 1870.
It is lined with many boutique shops and restaurants, and at weekends has flea markets located in the forecourts of some of the churches or public buildings.
But it is as the epicenter of Gay Sydney that Oxford Street is known for today. It has many gay pubs and clubs, adult sex shops and other facilities catering to the gay and lesbian community.
Once a year Oxford Street is the scene of the Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras, which attracts tens of thousands of local, national and international visitors, many of whom are happily heterosexual but who just want to watch the spectacle and join in the fun.

The Australian Army's Victoria Barracks in Sydney is a direct working link back to the earliest days of the settlement of Australia and the establishment of the colony of New South Wales.
It is a magnificent Regency-style building built of Hawkesbury sandstone by convicts between 1841 and 1846.
The main barrack block, which is believed to be the longest sandstone building in the southern hemisphere, was designed to accommodate 650 soldiers. While this building is now part of command headquarters, the signs of the early soldiers are still there in the form of depressions in the sandstone doorways where they used to sharpen their bayonets, which they also used for eating.
Victoria Barracks has been a working military base for 170 years, occupied first by British army units and later by Australian Army command headquarters and units.
Victoria Barracks is open to the public each Thursday from 10 am to 1230 pm, and a "corps" of guides give informative and interesting tours of the barracks compound.
There is also a military museum, which is housed in what was originally a military prison - the cells and iron doors are still there.
Busby's Bore, which was one of early Sydney's earliest water supplies is also located within the barracks and is still accessible.

Robertson Park is a small park between the Watson Bay Beach/Ferry Terminal and the Gap Reserve. It is nice to stroll through and the view from the top of the park is pretty. There is a bandstand towards the middle. I also saw some interesting birds in the park.

One of the few heritage swimming pools built into Sydney harbour which had a $2million overhaul in 2010. With changing rooms and the Watson's Bay Tea Garden - its a great way to while away a few hours
