Watsons Bay is a just a short ferry ride or bus ride from Circular Quay. Personally, I love taking the ferry but we have taken the bus as well. Our first trip to Watsons Bay was via bus from Bondi with a Jet Cat ride back to the Harbour and our second trip was a ferry ride from Circular Quay.

Watsons Bay is located on the southern head of the entrance to Sydney Harbour. On the east is the Tasman Sea and the west is the Harbour. Watsons Bay is where Governor Phillip first landed in Australia. It's Australia's oldest fishing village dating back from 1788.

Watsons Bay has some incredible view from South Head and the Gap. We've enjoyed some time exploring both and taking in the breathtaking landscape and water views. It's a nice way to spend the day, grab a bite to eat and explore. I'm glad to have had time to enjoy all that Watsons Bay has to offerduring my many visits to Sydney.
