Embarkation Park

This tranquil park has an excellent vantage point overlooking Garden Island and Sydney Harbour.

Do you like seeing out each and every year with a view of Sydney's fireworks? If so, then you're probably familiar with Embarkation Park. It's a prime vantage point for NYE celebrations — and, year-round, for looking over Garden Island and Sydney Harbour as well. (Also, when the sky isn't lighting up, it's an off-leash area for dogs from sunrise to sunset.)

The Potts Point spot was actually home to wooden warehouses from the late 19th century through until the 1970s. Then, it became a park on the rooftop of the navy car park in the mid-1980s.
