Clifton Gardens is located in Sydney’s north, near Taronga Zoo. It’s easily accessible by car, with parking directly at the gardens (for a fee), or in one of the nearby streets (connected by a steep stairway). It’s a great place to bring your family for a picnic, a little dip in the ocean, or for a comfortable bush walk. The track takes you either to Middle Cove or Bradley’s Head (where the zoo is). When we come, we normally head towards the zoo- the track hugs the coast line, and the views are beautiful. It takes 30-45 minutes to get to the other end, where you will be rewarded with this:
This place showcases Sydney Harbour, without the bustling crowds of Circular Quay and the Rocks, and would make an ideal location for a family photoshoot or a wedding. The parking at this location is limited, but in the times we’ve been, the lot has never been full. Sydney has many beautiful locations that are suitable for portrait and wedding photography- if you are after something special, we can help point you in the right direction.
