Milk Beach - 7kms east north east of Sydney and within 1km is Nielsen Park.

Sydney Harbour is home to numerous beaches – some well-known and some well hidden – which is just the perfect way to describe one of Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs well-kept secrets.

Is a small isolated beach surrounded by the Heritage Strickland House and the breathtaking view of Sydney Harbour at its best - can be accessed via Public Transport, boat or there is limited off-street parking.

It is situated within the Sydney Harbour National Park at the base of Hermit Bay within the Eastern Suburb of Vaucluse.

Enjoy family picnics under the awning, or take the Hermitage Foreshore Walk, sit back, relax enjoy the view – there’s even Seaplanes at nearby Rose Bay that you can watch land or take off, not to forget – you can watch the kayakers or even paddle one yourself.

Just perfect to see in any New Year as a great vantage point for the World recognised Sydney New Year’s Eve Fireworks over the magnificent Sydney Harbour – for an open view of Sydney Harbour Bridge in all its glory and as an added bonus this secret aussie beach remains free to the public for this event.

Access is limited and a reason why Milk Beach is a great secluded nearly deserted perfect Sydney Beach for those looking for peace and quiet with million $ views. Easy access via the water and alternative access (walking), is via Strickland House which is open to the public – so put on the walking shoes, pick up the picnic basket, walk past the Historic Home and just absorb the phenomenon.
