Walk through underground tunnels and view the harbour from gun emplacements where soldiers once defenced the entry to Sydney Harbour right up until WWII. Learn about the role Headland Park played in the defence of Sydney during WWII. In addition to historic fortifications you will also walk through beautiful bushland with magnificent harbour views, which now hosts artists, cafes, restaurants and businesses, with plenty of open space to explore. The tour concludes amongst historic buildings now serving as an artists’ precinct with parkland, BBQs and a cafe.
