Spend a lazy weekend lying under Moreton fig trees, with gentle waters splashing in the background and taking in Sydney Harbour’s panoramic views at Nielsen Park. A favourite for generations of families since the 1900s and specifically on New Years Eve, the park has three large sheltered picnic areas located on the grassy banks of Shark Beach and is surrounded by dense bush walking tracks just waiting to be explored. If you’re more content on sand, relax and watch seaplanes taking off from neighbouring Rose Bay or unwind with a coffee or wine at Nielsen Park Cafe.

During summer, discover the beach in a unique way by kayaking, snorkeling, diving or taking a sailboat out with the little ones. Or even flex your Instagram skills by photographing oddly shaped bottle and glass rocks at Bottle and Glass Point, a flat peninsula located an easy stroll from Shark Beach. If you still can’t get enough of the place, stay overnight at the historic Steele Point Cottage, located on the edge of a sandstone cliff, providing the perfect romantic escape.
