While a number of tourists queue up for photographs at the The Gap
(park), South Head and Watsons Bay lookouts, there is plenty of space to spread out a picnic blanket at Green Point Reserve. Tucked away at the back of a dead-end street next to the equally-secluded Camp Cove, this grassy cliff-top has sweeping 180-degree views of Oz's own Emerald City. Watching the fiery red glow reflect off the water as the sun sinks behind the mountains is as romantic as it gets. For more details, contact the Lake Macquarie Visitor Information Centre.
