I did a reconnoiter this morning and have realized lunch is better had after the walk.

So, I will now depart ONE HOUR earlier and will be at Wharf 2 Circular Quay at 11am to catch a ferry scheduled for 11:17am.

The walk itself is about 2.5 miles/4km with some undulations and will take about 90 minutes.

The weather forecast is good - I suggest caps/hats and reasonable footwear will be a very good idea.

You can catch a ferry from the CBD to Watson's bay quite cheaply on Sundays with an Opal card.

NSW Transport Trip Planner - Circular Quay to Watson's Bay from 10:30am

Watson's Bay has quite a lot of history (see below) and some interesting food venues.

After the walk there's plenty of places to have lunch.

There's Doyle's on the Beach and Doyle's Wharf. Here's some links to menu's https://www.doyles.com.au/?section#location (Remember, "Entree" means "starter" or "appetizer"). There's a hotel near the wharf (https://watsonsbayhotel.com.au/beach-club/) and a few other places to eat.

I'm planning on 'takeaway' myself but if any wish to dine 'on the beach' or at the Hotel I suggest they make a booking.

This whole thing is casual, doing one's own thing is the way to go.

Here's some further information:
