EXPLORING CHOWDER BAY







There is something quite freeing about going to the beach in autumn. When you go with the intention to wander, rather than dig yourself into the sand, you don't need to take all the usual paraphernalia. And on grey days, you don't need to worry about suncream either. Another added bonus is that there's hardly anyone else at the beach. We spotted only one other family during our visit to Chower Bay yesterday, and then they were gone, and so we had the place to ourselves again.

Chowder Bay is in Sydney's Middle Harbour area and offers a great view of the entrance to the Harbour itself. It also provides a sheltered bay which is popular for people diving and kayaking. It's worth noting that there are quite a few eateries in the area as well as toilets and a children's playground. But we spent most of our time exploring the beach and walking around the foreshore. On our walk down, we also spotted a rabbit, which was a wonderful surprise. And there was a kookaburra flying over our heads at one point too.

As we drove away, we spotted a walking trail that goes between Taronga Zoo and Balmoral Beach - the Bungaree Walkway. That might be next on the agenda.
