Sydney Harbourside Beach

by Ice on August 29, 2012


For an introduction to Sydney beaches here are photos from a recent visit to the harbourside beach known as Nielsen Park. You travel to the eastern suburb of Vaucluse to get to this beach. While the beach is small the park is quite large as you can see from this Google map and it offers visitors an easy walk back to Vaucluse Rd.

These photos were taken on a crisp winter-is-almost-over-but-not-quite-spring morning.

First some beautiful fig trees that are so plentiful up and down the east coast of Australia…

A sweeping view of the entire beach. As you can see this is a small beach. The house seen behind the trees in the distance contains a cafe. In summer this is a thriving hotspot of sun bathers.
