Today's swimming adventure destination was Nielsen Park - another fabulous harbour beach in the eastern suburb of Vaucluse (between Parsley Bay, our second destination, and Redleaf Pool, with a view across to Clifton Gardens.
There is a gorgeous netted, sandy swimming beach, plenty of grass and vast shady picnic areas.
The kiosk/cafe has good cafe, the wait staff were friendly and helpful. There's a casual takeaway kiosk as well as an attractive inside dining room, and where we chose, birdseye verandah seating.
We watched a pair of dolphins frolicking in the harbour from our spot.
Toilets and change rooms are adequate. Parking is at a premium in nearby streets. But you can have a peek at how some of Sydney's wealthiest residents are accommodated on the walk to and from the car!
