I came across an image on Instagram took at Diamond Bay Reserve in Vaucluse and knew this incredible gem was on the top of my list to explore once arriving in Sydney. It’s a large open park with dramatic coastal views and an ideal place to take your dog as it’s off leash all day, every day.

Diamond Bay is also the perfect place to whale watch. During whale watching season you can see the Humpback whales as they migrate along the eastern coast. The best viewing point is at the high northern end up at Chris Bang Crescent.

If you’re feeling energetic you can explore the coastal walk stretching from South Head to Bondi, then extending along the Bondi to Coogee Coastal Walk. The walk takes in some of the best views along the Eastern Suburb coastlines and is one of the many great walks in this area.

Getting there

Diamond Bay Reserve is located on the corner of Diamond Bay Road and Craig Avenue in Vaucluse. Take Old South Road to Diamond Bay Road. The parks can also be accessed from Chris Bang Crescent.


Craig Avenue, Vaucluse, NSW, 2030


There are car parking bays on Craig Avenue


You can take the 323, 333 & 380 which all stop on Military Road close to the park.

Discover it for yourself if you are a Sydneysider or passing through. With its raw natural beauty, interesting rock formation and old ruins you will be able to take some amazing snaps so don’t forget your camera!
