Milk Beach

My favourite time of year in Sydney is that lazy week between Christmas and the New Year, when most offices have shut down and everyone is in full leisure-mode. It not only allows for some serious battery-recharging, but also means getting out and about and doing things one wouldn’t normally have the privilege of enjoying at 10am on a Tuesday – a long breakfast over eggs and the paper, extended pub afternoons with friends, or mornings of foreshore-walking and beach-lounging. Small and secluded is the name of the game where the latter is concerned, and I decided to hit up Milk Beach in Vaulcluse one morning for a swim and some R&R.

The beach sits at the bottom of the grounds of heritage-listed Strickland House, is tiny and sheltered, and has beautiful views over Shark Island and across the harbour to the city skyline. An easy-breezy 325 bus from the city is the easiest way to get there, but I was keen to add to my portfolio of Sydney Harbour foreshore walks so arrived via the Hermitage Foreshore Track. This shaded and minimally strenuous track runs from Bayview Hill Rd and winds around the foreshore to Milk Beach, continuing all the way to Neilson Park if you fancy.
