Nielsen Park is one of Sydney’s best kept secrets. Situated on the pristine waters of the mouth of Sydney Harbour, the beach at Shark Bay and the sweeping grounds of the park have all the trappings of a perfect day out with the family.
The Park has a Kiosk, Surf Club and Pavilion, all offering brilliant food, drinks and venues for private functions. Nestled in the quiet alcove of opulent Vaucluse and bordered by sparking water, glistening white sand and luscious parkland, Nielsen Park/Shark Bay is a soulful excursion out of Sydney’s CBD which will give any visitor or lifetime Sydneysider a feel for why Sydney has attracted and will continue to attract tourists from everywhere around the globe.
