Easy track
This walk explores the foreshore tracks of Cremorne Reserve, taking in fantastic harbour views, beautiful gardens and a sidetrip to Robertsons Point lighthouse. Starting from Cremorne ferry wharf, the walk climbs to Robertsons Point and lighthouse, then meanders down past interesting houses and historic gardens, before delving into Mosmans Bay and finishing up at the ferry wharf. A great way to explore part of the harbour, capped off with rides on the ferry. Let us begin by acknowledging the Borogegal, Cammeraygal & Wallumedegal people, Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.

Elephants Ear

The Lex and Ruby Graham Garden at Cremorne Point is quite remarkable, worthy of a little extra time on your walk. A chance planting of a tropical 'Elephant's Ear' bulb in 1959, which happened to thrive, led to a lifetime work for Lex Graham and his future wife, Ruby. They worked steadily for decades, clearing weeds and rubbish, improving the soil and building up the gardens with donated plants and cuttings.

Robertsons Point Lookout

Robertsons Point, also known as Cremorne Point, is home to Cremorne Reserve. At the very tip, visitors can wander down some old steps to the lighthouse, and the more adventurous can continue down a rather precarious ladder to the water's edge. The spectacular harbour views can be enjoyed from a number of bench seats. A memorial plaque reminds visitors to take extra care and respect the inherent dangers of the rocky coast.
