Batter Access To Sydney’s Jewels

Written by on

The NSW Government has invested almost $11 million to provide better public access to Sydney Harbour with improved walking tracks and spectacular short-stay accommodation in the heart of the City.

Environment Minister Matt Kean said Sydney Harbour is world renowned for its beauty and it’s important the public can access these locations.

“The new and upgraded walking tracks will connect Georges Head and Middle Head in Sydney Harbour National Park to the Sydney Harbour Scenic Walk,” Mr Kean said.

“Along the walkway, visitors will enjoy upgraded and improved visitor facilities that protect, enhance and celebrate the sites natural and cultural values, and when you’ve finished your walk you can put your feet up for a couple of nights at one of the newly refurbished heritage short-stay properties with million-dollar views.

“The properties are now available for the public to book online and stay in beautifully restored and unique 1800’s heritage jewels on Sydney Harbour.”

In addition to the $11 million, the NSW Government has dedicated $7.6 million to the restoration and maintenance of short stay accommodation programs in NSW national parks since 2017.

Member for North Shore Felicity Wilson said the focus of the program is on adaptive re-use of heritage properties, and this announcement demonstrates substantial investment to repurpose two significant heritage buildings of the 1800’s.

“Revamping these historic buildings in two of the State’s most scenic and historic precincts enables visitors to reap the rewards of our investment, Ms. Wilson said.

Member for Vaucluse Gabrielle Upton said Gardeners Cottage is an 1850’s two-bedroom cottage in the heart of Nielsen Park, Vaucluse, just a short walk to Shark Beach.

“Restoring and repurposing historic buildings means un-used buildings in older condition are given new life and purpose,” Ms Upton said.
