Gap Park Historic Tramway Trail

Explore the Historic Tramway Trail at Gap Park

Take a stroll along the new accessible pathway along the historic tramway route(PDF, 1MB) through Gap Park connecting Military Road and Old South Head Road.

The pathway measures two metres wide, making it pram friendly and a great route for families or anyone needing a bit of extra space., The path takes visitors along the historic tram route, a bushland rock escarpment and an exotic rain forest gully – a very different experience to the exposed Coastal Walk path that hugs the cliff tops above.

A raised timber boardwalk has also been constructed over some prominent Fig tree roots near the southern end to protect them, and seating has been installed along the route for resting and taking in magnificent views of the Harbour Bridge and the tranquil surrounds of Gap Park.

Interpretative signage will also be installed to provide visitors with more information about the natural environment and Aboriginal heritage.

This project was supported by funding from the Australian Government under the Community Development Grants Programme.
