We went here after a tiring morning. We had the best view of the city on the left and the serene beauty of the Reserve on the right. The beach was calming and the Aboriginals around were welcoming and harmless.

East Point is a little slice of paradise. You have an abundance of wildlife, wallabies, snakes, birds and horses. The walk is about 6km and a slight incline. The views are stunning and the sea breeze is refreshing.

Must visit for every tourist. East Point Reserve is a rather large area, so any one review is unlikely to cover all it's points.

The East Head reserve is free access. With lots of army buildings or relics of them. It is a long walk from anywhere. I dont know if there is a bus. We found buses a bit hit and miss and never went where we wanted. Taxis... More
