On The Esplanade at 'the other end' (i.e. at the other side of the beach to the Balmoral Sailing Club etc) is this cool, funky cafe/restaurant. The interior is all hard surfaces (concrete, laminated tables etc), so whilst it may look cool (and feels cool),...More

With a variety of outdoor attractions, the
sophisticated harbour suburb of Mosman has something
for everyone. Shoppers can stroll Military Road for
its unique offering of antiques, designer labels, and
hip restaurants and cafes. Nature lovers can take in
spectacular bushwalks like the Taronga to Balmoral
walk, while families can enjoy snorkeling in the
sheltered beaches of Balmoral Beach or scuba diving at

If you've ever tried walking all the way up Awaba Street from Balmoral Beach you'll know what I mean. And if you haven't and have simply driven up and down it, I have no doubt that you're having a chuckle at me because it doesn't seem very steep-but don't laugh until you've walked it. They even have an annual run called "The Balmoral Burn" which is simply running up Awaba Street. I've walked it myself, once and once only and that was enough for me. I knew it would be hard so I ditched the heels and wore ballet flats and even then I found myself going slowly and rather gingerly down the hill. I passed puffing, red faced and sweaty people all looking like they'd trade in their first born for a taxi ride up the hill. When I was nearing the bottom, there was a man, red and sweaty shirt off pushing a baby stroller up a hill. I didn't have the heart to tell him that it got worse.
