Dawes Point Park, providing spectacular views of Sydney Harbour and the Harbour Bridge, is controlled by the Sydney Harbour Foreshore Authority. The park is located on the narrowest point of Sydney Harbour and situated beneath the Harbour Bridge, features grass lawns, palm trees and state significant relics of gun emplacements which housed cannons positioned to defend Sydney from naval attack during the 18th century. Five original cannons are on display within the park.

The area was originally known by the Aboriginal names of Tar-ra and Tullagalla. This was later changed to Point Maskelyne in honour of Reverend Dr Nevil Maskelyne, British Astronomer Royal. He sent out the first astronomical instruments which were established at the point in the country’s first observatory, by Lieutenant William Dawes (1762-1836), astronomer with the First Fleet. The point was renamed in honour of Dawes.

    I love the POV here! I’ve never seen this view of the bridge. I’ve gone over the bridge many times, but never saw the park. If I had known about the gun emplacements, I would have nagged my dad to take me there.

  • Thanks for the fave and lovely comment. Not quite sure which Emerson it’s from. Is it Kathleen? I did not realise that you lived in Australia before Montana. Cheers. Tony
