Interestingly, Mosman earned its name from Archibald Mosman, one of the recipients of land grants given in 1831. Mosman and his twin managed a shipping business, and the whaling station on site was eventually referred to as Mosman’s Bay.

One of the region’s most prominent geographical features is the peninsula formed at the midpoint between Sydney and Middle Harbours. This proximity to the harbour means there are several stunning beaches to explore and enjoy.

Balmoral beach, for instance, is an ideal location to enjoy a sunny dip, indulge in the classic combo of fish and chips or take up a chilled picnic. For adventure lovers, rollerblading and sailboarding are popular at the beach. Some of the facilities at the beach include changing rooms, showers and toilets.

For a wild water adventure, enjoy snorkelling and diving at Chowder Bay. Are you travelling through Mosman with the kids? You can always enjoy kayaking with the little ones at Chinaman Beach, an expansive 250-metre of pristine sands that stretch to the north of Balmoral Beach.

Mosman is home to great natural beauty, and there is no better way to marvel at this that to take on nature walks. The Taronga to Balmoral Walk affords stunning views and an unforgettable bush experience within Sydney Harbour National Park. Alternatively, discover what makes Headland Park an ideal place for nature visits. The spectacular views from the Chowder Bay to Bradleys Head walk are a sight to behold.

Away from Mosman’s natural attractions, shoppers get to indulge in retail therapy at the numerous designer boutiques that line Military Road. These include Nordic Fusion for all your homewares, Burnt Orange for gifts, and the East Coast Lounge to dine and shop.
