On this walk, you will circumnavigate Green Point (also known as Laings Point), on Sydney Harbour’s South Head. The point is surrounded in history and great harbour views. Starting from the end of Pacific St, you will head through some open parkland and a short side trip leads to Camp Cove, the first landing place for Europeans in Australia. The walk then continues around the grassy headland to visit the eastern anchor point of Sydney’s anti-submarine net. A short and enjoyable walk.
