Walk along the foreshore from Milson's Point to Lavender Bay, soaking up spectacular views of the Sydney Harbour Bridge before exploring iconic Luna Park's local artwork and unique funfair atmosphere. Wander between an Australian bushland setting and beautiful Lavender Bay’s poignant reminders of a maritime boat-building past, until you find yourself in a secret, paradisiacal garden created on wasteland by noted cultural identity and local Lavender Bay resident, Wendy Whiteley.
There are numerous locations that are part of the walk where you might want to linger. Wendy's Secret Garden at the end of the tour is a tranquil haven for a rest or picnic lunch.
The tour is ready whenever you are and the audio plays automatically at exactly the right time and place using your smartphone's GPS and the VoiceMap mobile app, which also works offline.
