Easy track
On this walk, you will circumnavigate Cremorne Point along the harbourside paths, winding through gardens and sections of native bushland. The extra time for the side trip to Robertsons Point Lookout is well rewarded and in the warmer months, why not bring your swimmers and enjoy a dip at Maccallum Pool. There are places for the kids to play, grand houses and great harbour views to enjoy. A great walk for people wanting to stretch their legs and enjoy Sydney Harbour. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.

Elephants Ear

The Lex and Ruby Graham Garden at Cremorne Point is quite remarkable, worthy of a little extra time on your walk. A chance planting of a tropical 'Elephant's Ear' bulb in 1959, which happened to thrive, led to a lifetime work for Lex Graham and his future wife, Ruby. They worked steadily for decades, clearing weeds and rubbish, improving the soil and building up the gardens with donated plants and cuttings.

Robertsons Point Lookout

Robertsons Point, also known as Cremorne Point, is home to Cremorne Reserve. At the very tip, visitors can wander down some old steps to the lighthouse, and the more adventurous can continue down a rather precarious ladder to the water's edge. The spectacular harbour views can be enjoyed from a number of bench seats. A memorial plaque reminds visitors to take extra care and respect the inherent dangers of the rocky coast.
