Destination guide

Live it up and make the most of your Mosman holiday

Are you a penthouse person? Everyone enjoys living the high life now and then, so why not experience what it's like to hang in one of Sydney's snazziest ‘burbs? The Lower North Shore neighborhood of Mosman juts out into Sydney Harbour, and you'll find plenty of vantage points along the coastline offering spectacular views of Downtown. Mosman vacation rentals will put you right at the heart of the action, providing access to top-class dining, boutique shopping to die for, and easy access to some of the Australian capital's top attractions.

Things to do

From lemur encounters to Long Island Iced Teas

Talk about attractions in Mosman and you can't avoid mentioning Taronga Zoo. This family-friendly park opened its doors in 1916 and is now home to more than 4,000 animals, including giraffes, koalas, and lemurs. History buffs in your group can get their fix at Georges Head, with its World War II gun emplacements, underground tunnels, and fantastic views. Find time to take in the latest exhibition at Mosman Art Gallery, or pay a visit to Nutcote, the former home of Australian children's author May Gibbs. Ready to take the weight off? Grab a sundowner at one of the rooftop bars along Military Road.


You'll end up harboring a love for Mosman's mesmerizing views

Once you've clapped eyes on the impressive views Mosman peninsula has to offer, you'll realize why so many of Sydney's wealthiest citizens choose to call it home. Staying in Mosman vacation rentals allows you to make the most of everything on offer. Follow the walking trails at Bradleys Head and you'll be treated to panoramic views across the harbor, as well as plenty of birdwatching opportunities. Take a dip at Maccallum Pool, also a popular sunbathing site, or make your way to the cove at Cobblers Beach for some open-water swimming. Why not bring a picnic and make a day of it on the sand?


Slap on the sunscreen, 'cause it's gonna be a scorcher

Like the rest of Sydney, Mosman has a humid subtropical climate that makes for hot summers, mild winters, and plenty of sunshine throughout the year. If you're thinking of a summer visit between December and February, expect average highs in the mid-70s and lows around 10 degrees cooler. July, the coldest month, tends to see highs of 62 degrees and lows of 50. Thanks to its location on a peninsula, Mosman particularly benefits from the afternoon sea breeze that sweeps through the capital and cools everything down. Look to the shoulder seasons around October and April if you want to avoid the crowds and get the best deals on Mosman vacation rentals.

Natural features

Capture that classic Harbour Bridge sunset

With vast swathes of green space and secluded out-of-the-way spots to enjoy, it's no wonder Mosman has become so popular with locals. Georges Head and Chowder Head Bushland are just a couple of the protected headlands worth exploring. Grab your binoculars and pay a visit to Middle Head in June or July, or between September and November, and you might be lucky enough to spot a southern right whale as it migrates along the New South Wales coast. For outrageously good sunsets, spend a peaceful evening at Bradleys Head watching the sun sink behind Sydney Harbour Bridge.
