Our Marina is located on the most northern shoreline of Sydney Harbour and on the edge of a native bushland reserve. The tree clad Dobroyd Point and Reef Beach reaches out to protect North Harbour from the boisterous south and southeast winds.
Davis Marina's street address is the end of Gourlay Ave Balgowlah and our marine address is the head of North Harbour but walkers know us as the marina on the Sydney Harbour foreshore walk. Locals say we are at the end of the bush track past the houses on the way to Forty Baskets Beach.
We say the marina is in Balgowlah and close to the shopping centre and North Harbour Reserve which has a very popular picnic area and playground for kids. Some of our clients like to visit the restaurants in the shopping village after a day on the harbour and others prefer to have a beer at Manly Yacht Club after a day’s racing.
Everyone agrees the Harbour is the focal point attracting fishermen, yachtsmen sightseers and picnickers. Sydney Harbour National Park has many places to explore by boat and probably the most popular anchorage is Store Beach. This quiet sandy beach, only accessible by water is a great spot for the kids to swim off the beach. Close by, Quarantine Beach and Collins Flat also offer lovely anchorages and sandy beaches.
Manly Cove is popular with those that like a good coffee after a swim or stroll along the beach, and is a great place to go ashore for dinner, or to top up on supplies.
Further down the Harbour, places like Nielsen Park, Rose Bay, Shark Island, Chowder Bay and Athol Bight are all worth exploring on the way under the Harbour Bridge and the fish markets. For a secluded weekend away, upper Middle Harbour under the Spit Bridge has some of the more remote places to explore, including Sugarloaf and Bantry Bay.
There are so many places to go and things to do that it is worth staying around for a long time!
