Georges Heights is managed by the Sydney Harbour Federation Trust and has some of the most stunning vantage points anywhere on the harbour with uninterrupted views across to Manly, Vaucluse and back to the city of Sydney. It was once an ideal location for defence fortifications; today, visitors can tour concealed gun pits and other military relics and take in the spectacular views.
The bushland in Headland Park provides habitat for a wide range of native species. Keep a look out for water dragons, blue-tongue lizards, ring-tailed possums, green tree snakes, kookaburras, rainbow lorikeets, currawongs, pacific white face herons, and dollar birds.
The showpiece of Headland Park, Georges Heights Lookout is the perfect place to view a panorama of Sydney Harbour. The vantage point is defined by an elegant sandstone platform allowing visitors to catch stunning views of the Heads, Pacific Ocean, eastern suburbs, and city skyline. Designed by award-winning architect Richard Leplastrier, the lookout opened in 2007. Access it via Suakin Drive off Middle Head Road in Mosman.
