Our autumn weather has been so unbelievably warm that it seems a waste not to make the most of it by getting out and enjoying it. Last weekend we took the opportunity to enjoy a harbour walk.
We started our walk in Olympic Drive at Kirribilli and walked along the path under the Harbour Bridge. BJ was amused by the trains going over the bridge above us. It’s quite loud.
Even though Luna Park was not our destination on this occasion, we walked through knowing that BJ would enjoy all the activity.
He enjoyed the attention of the street performers and stopped for photos.
Lavender Bay provides stunning views of the Harbour Bridge and is a relaxing place to sit and watch the passing parade of people exercising themselves, and their pampered pooches.
The walk is easy with only one slight incline on the Lavender Bay side. It’s a very pleasant walk and unlike many wheelchair friendly walks it delivers with rewarding views from start to finish.
From Luna Park to Lavender Bay there is a gorgeous little sculpture trail. A great way to keep little people entertained if their legs are getting tired.
The views of the Opera House and Harbour Bridge are spectacular on this walk and provide fabulous photo opportunities.
Many walks don’t have good facilities but I’m happy to say this walk delivers at both ends (probably not a good use of words).
There is a disabled bathroom facility at the end of the walk at Lavender Bay.
There is also a modern unisex bathroom facility at the start of the walk on Olympic Drive (see photo above).
There are several disabled parking spaces in Olympic Drive.
Parking here provides a level walk nearly all the way.
