Chowder Bay, which as the name may suggest was named after whalers who made chowder from the bay’s seafood.
As an option, we can visit Chowder Bay as part of our North Shore & Beaches Private tour, as it is quite close to Mosman and Middle Head fortifications.
It is nestled between the harbour and a steep expanse of bushland. Once a submarine base, there are many historic buildings or you can spend your time swimming, snorkelling, kayaking, or bushwalking. You can hire everything you need for a day on the water from Plunge Diving.
There are a few good options for coffee or something to eat. The most comprehensive is the well regarded Ripples Chowder Bay which serves breakfast, lunch and dinner.
There are a number of native wildlife you can look out for. Water dragons, blue-tongue lizards, ring-tailed possums, green tree snakes, kookaburras, rainbow lorikeets, burrawongs, pacific white face herons, and dollar birds.
