Curlew Camp, Little Sirius Cove (Walk Part 1)

The city, with Robertson's Point (Cremorne Point) and its lighthouse, from Curlew Camp on Little Sirius Cove, Mosman.

Let's take a walk on a beautiful sunny day, from Taronga Zoo Wharf to Cremorne Point, around Little Sirius Cove and Mosman Bay.

You can see a fantastic aerial shot of the route of the walk here:
In the 1890s, Curlew Camp was the haunt of artists Arthur Streeton, Tom Roberts and friends. Heavily influenced by French Impressionism, they set up their easels in the bushland and stayed in a fairly elaborate camp here on the shore of Little Sirius Cove.
