  2. The park across the road from my house, minimum fuss getting there :-) otherwise I think any spot with ocean views is good, Manly beach is my favourite, oh if u do the coastal bushwalk from spit junction to manly, u will walk pass some of the most beautiful picnic spots, as with the walk from rose bay wharf to watson bay. In all sydney is just a haven for picnic spots :-)

  3. Garden island on the top of the hill has million dollar views to the heads and around to the bridge and opera house.

    I agree: Cremorne Point – great views and on a hot day take swimmers for a dip in Maccallum Pool.

  5. Carrs Bush Park in Sydney’s southern suburbs is a fantastic place for a picnic. It has shade trees galore, bush walks, childrens playground/bike track, a beaut little swimming enclosure, cafe/restaurant and much much more

  6. While I’m a little biased. I think Cremorne Point has to be one of the best. easy parking. and transport by ferry (only 10 minutes from the city) and a stunning view of the bridge, opera house and sydney skyline.

  7. Wendy’s Secret Garden is a really lovely secluded and romantic place to have a picnic. It has a beautiful garden, charming antiquities, and Sydney Harbour Bridge & Opera House as a backdrop! It’s a secret garden because it is hard to find (unless you have the directions). The garden was created by Wendy Whiteley after the death of her husband, Brett Whiteley in 1992. (Brett was one of Sydney’s favourite artists who has won many prestigious art prizes in Australia.)
