Headland Park in Mosman, also known as Georges Heights, is a beautiful harbourside attraction that continues to draw visitors from across Sydney. With some of the most majestic vantage points on the Harbour, this is the perfect place to enjoy uninterrupted views of Sydney’s skyline.
The park’s history can be traced back to the First World War when military soldiers used this location as a lookout point for enemy ships.

Visitors can enjoy the self-guided walks that go around the main attractions of the park. A visitor’s guide comes in handy for these walks and can be obtained from the Harbour Trust Office in Mosman. During a tour at this park, make sure you visit Georges Heights Lookout; a vantage point with amazing views of the Harbour. Look out for the sandstone platform too and remember to capture and share your best photos.
Make a stopover at the First World War-era hospital and enjoy walking back in time to a period where war and injuries were rife. Building 21 is where visitors can read the touching stories of workers at the hospital, alongside the soldiers they treated – a reflective part of the tour and a highlight for many.
The military fortifications around the park are part of the attraction that includes underground tunnels, a barracks, brick workshops, and gun pits. Exploring the park’s defence heritage is one of the best ways to appreciate its rich history.
Guided walks are available on the First Sunday of each month. Due to the tour including bush tracks, stairs, inclines and underground fortifications, it is unfortunately not suitable for those with limited mobility or walking aids, wheelchairs or strollers.
Enjoy a great-tasting menu at Frenchy’s Cafe or enjoy a la carte lunch at The Tea Room Gunners Barracks. Entry is free for all, and Headland Park remains open daily.
Make your way to the park for an unforgettable day trip.
