Mosman to Waverton Walk

Mosman to Waverton Walk

Officially, it’s the second day of autumn already. Man, time flies, a little too quickly! This morning, I decided to do a little urban exploration of north Sydney area. Took the bus over to the Spit / Military Road junction, then walked down to Mosman Bay. There were lots of cute little cafes and stores along Military Road, though I didn’t stop to linger.

The quiet little marina by Mosman Bay. I’m a little sad that summer is officially over, but it was nice walking in slightly cooler temperatures.

Doing the Cremorne Point Loop. These gorgeous houses have the most stunning view

After Cremorne Point, there wasn’t any nice waterfront trails from Neutral Bay to Milsons Point, so I strolled along leafy avenues, past stately mansions with million dollar water views, till I hit Luna Park. There are always people milling about outside the park, since it is situated right by the water with a great view of the opera house and the harbor bridge, but I’ve never seen anyone taking any rides. I wonder how it survives.

I walked past Luna Park, along Lavender Bay, and then cut across to Blues Point Road, where I grabbed a much welcome coffee and a pick-me-up of toasted banana bread slathered with butter. After, I finished the walk through Waverton Oval and Berrys Bay to the Waverton Station.

In all, about a 11km (6.9mile) stroll. While the scenery wasn’t as dramatic as the Bondi to Coogee walk (got to redo that one again!), it was a quiet and peaceful one. As far as urban walks go, it’s definitely up there!
