Balmoral Self Guided Heritage Walk
There are many beautiful foreshore, bushland and heritage walks in Mosman. With the beach and Harbour on one side, and a vibrant community presence, this walk has become one of the most popular, gaining significance at local, state and national level.
In November 2005, Mosman Council revised and reprinted the Balmoral Self Guided Heritage Walk brochure. It provides a map and gives information on items of heritage significance that can be seen as points of interest on the Balmoral walk.

Curlew Camp Artists’ Walk
The Curlew Camp Artists’ Walk was developed by Council and Taronga Zoo with financial assistance from the Sharing Sydney Harbour Access Program and the NSW Heritage Office. The walk is over 1.6 km long and extends from the South Mosman ferry wharf at Musgrave Street and continues along to the Taronga Zoo ferry wharf, following the route used by visitors to the Camp during the 1890s.
The site of the Camp is located on the foreshore below Taronga Zoo and contains a viewing platform with interpretative signage which tells the fascinating story of the artists who lived and painted in this idyllic setting, developing a unique style of painting now known as the Australian School of Impressionism. The natural beauty of the area which inspired many well known Australian works of art by prominent artists, including Arthur Streeton and Tom Roberts, is still evident today as you follow the route around Mosman’s foreshores.
It should be noted that the route is partly on road and does include steep sections and stairs. Please refer to the downloadable map below for details of the route:
