The walking track around Bradleys Head in Sydney Harbour National Park provides an ideal opportunity to view the major Sydney icons such as the Harbour Bridge, the Opera House and Fort Denison while on a gentle stroll in a natural bushland setting. Historic cannons that once defended Sydney are still in place in the Bradleys Head fortifications.Bradley's Head
is a headland protruding from the north shore of Sydney Harbour
, within the metropolitan area of Sydney
, New South Wales
The foremast of the cruiser HMAS Sydney
, renowned for taking part in the Royal Australian Navy
's first ship against ship engagement in World War I
, is mounted on the headland as a memorial to that battle. In June 2000, the mast was rededicated as a monument to all Australian ships and sailors lost in conflict.
Bradley's head was also used for shooting of scenes for Mission: Impossible II
