Easy track
A short walk but a fun time. Catch a ferry to Cremorne Point and grab a bite to eat before climbing the steps and having a play in the kids playground. Then wander along the footpath to the lookout at the end of Cremorne Point, know as Robertsons Point. The view across Sydney Harbour is great. There are also a few picnic tables to enjoy. Beyond this walk, the more adventurous can climb down the steps and ladder to the rock platform below. Let us begin by acknowledging the Cammeraygal & Wallumedegal people, Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.

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.
