Sirius Cove

Sirius Cove is a spectacular beach in Mosman and one of the city’s best-kept secrets. The cove, which measures 250 metres wide and 550 metres deep, has a unique bay that projects into the harbour, making it ideal for many water activities.

At Sirius Cove, the beach is safe for swimmers during calm conditions, but it’s advisable to stay away during more severe weather. Additionally, caution must be exercised when navigating the deep water at certain sections of the beach.

Fishing is a favourite activity along the entire stretch of shoreline. It’s not uncommon to find anglers taking a shot at getting a big catch. The many safe rocks and jetties make it easy to go fishing.

Since the beach does not experience great swells, it is not considered a surf beach. For beachgoers who prefer to stay out of the water, the grass areas and shaded sections nearby provide a picture-perfect setting to enjoy a picnic. There is a large picnic area and playground where the little ones enjoy themselves. This is a favourite spot for families, especially during the weekend when the beach comes alive.

Sirius Cove is also a dog-friendly beach, so pet lovers are allowed to bring their dogs. However, dogs are only allowed off-leash on weekdays and must be on-leash between 9am and 4pm on weekends and public holidays.

The cove is also a great starting point for the walking track that leads to Taronga Zoo and Chowder Bay. For those heading west, the trail leads to the popular Cremorne Point, which has nearby attractions, including Whiting Beach, Athol Bay, and Mosman Bay.

To get to Sirius Cove, take the ferry and get off at Mosman Bay, from where the cove is a short walk away. There is a designated parking zone for car users, but if it’s full, you can use the free nearby street parking.
