Welcome to Balmoral

I thought I'd do a little research about Balmoral Beach since it is going to be our home for the next two years.



Here's what About.com has to say about Balmoral:

Balmoral Beach in Sydney's Middle Harbour lies just west of Middle Head, a picturesque crescent-shaped beach with its own island — Rocky Point.





In summer, the Balmoral Rotunda is the place to experience Shakespeare by the Sea. The rotunda and rocky Point Island are popular for weddings and photographs. Restaurants and cafes are at beachside. The Bathers Pavilion, a 1928 Spanish-Moorish-style building, is noted for its restaurant serving modern Australian cuisine.





Aside from off-street parking, there's a dedicated parking area at the southern end of the beach. Parking fees apply.

There is an area of enclosed public baths by Balmoral Wharf and and just north of Rocky Point Island is a netted shark-proof pool.

Picnic and barbecue facilities are available.

The beach is not patrolled by surf lifesavers.



This beach is going to be my front yard. Somebody pinch me!

Balmoral Beach is super cute. We took our 4 & 5 year old boys there once-- there's a playground too and it's one of the few beaches where the water isn't incredibly rough. We live on the beach in the Eastern Suburbs-- hard life right?

Are you shy? That's okay-- when are you moving?
