Mosman is a jewel in the crown of Sydney, offering visitors and locals alike the enjoyment of a holiday location on the North Shore without venturing too far from the city. Located just 8 km northeast of Sydney's bustling central business district, this suburb of 30,000 has long been a destination for artists and holidaymakers alike. Beautiful beaches surround the peninsula, placing Mosman between Sydney Harbour and Middle Harbour. The Spit Bridge connects the peninsula to the mainland on the north side, keeping Mosman convenient for travel and easy to access.
The town is named for twin brothers Archibald and George Mosman, who settled here in 1831 and were heavily involved in the shipping trade. Later they diversified and opened a whaling station and became involved in grazing in the area.
Iconic former cricket captain Allan Border grew up in and learned his craft in Mosman.
Mosman's unique geography means that the area is key to the protection of Sydney and safeguarding the harbour entrance. The peninsula has long been used as a primary defensive position. In the late 1880's, the harbour was mined with remote control mines, and a detonation station was set up at Mosman. Later, during WWII, a submarine net was placed across the mouth of the harbour and controlled from Mosman as well. The importance of Mosman's defences was proven in May 1942, when the net stopped an intrusion by Japanese miniature submarines. The danger has now passed, but evidence of the fortifications of Mosman is still visible today.
North Shore Beaches - It would be difficult for any visitor to Mosman to resist the allure of the stunning beaches practically within a stone's throw. From iconic Manly to beautiful Palm Beach, the sands just beg to be laid up and the water beckons for all manner of activities on it, in it and under it.
Sydney Harbour National Park - Protecting the foreshore, some small islands and marine life, the park is ideal for outdoor pursuits. Bushwalking, swimming in delightful hideaways, picnicking and wildlife spotting are on the menu.
Taronga Zoo - Established in 1916, Taronga Zoo is the Sydney city zoo and is located in Mosman. The 21-hectare footprint contains more than 340 species of animals with modern zoo keeping techniques. A key attraction is the elephant enclosure, as Taronga was the first zoo in Australia to successfully breed Asian elephants and have calves born in Australia. Getting to the zoo if fun in itself, as there is a dedicated ferry carrying visitors from Sydney to the zoo ferry wharf, followed by a gondola ride to the top end of the zoo.
Scotland Australia Cairn at Rawson Park - Scottish settlers have had an undeniable impact on Australia's history and development. The Cairn in Rawson Park is built from stones imported from Scotland, and contains a stone from each of Scotland's parishes. A Celtic cross caps the 1,750 stones, and the cairn stands at the park's highest point. The cairn was built in 1988 to celebrate the Scottish Australian bicentennial.
Curlew Camp - In the late 1800's, Mosman became home to several small artists' colonies or camps. Curlew Camp was the most well known of these, and was home to prominent artists Arthur Streeton, Tom Roberts, and Henry Fullwood. Today the camp has been returned to a natural state, and can be seen during one of the many Mosman Walks tours of the area. The site sits just below the current location of Taronga Zoo.
Shakespeare by the Sea (Australia) - The Shakespeare by the Sea festival ran from 1987 until 2011, providing guests a chance to see the Bard's greatest hits at Balmoral Beach in Mosman. Beginning from 2012, the festival has continued under the name Bard on the Beach, and dates have already been announced for the 2014 season. Pack a picnic and come along for a dose of culture during your holiday.
Mosman Art Gallery - The key calling card for the local gallery is the exhibition of paintings in competition for the annual Mosman Art Prize. The Prize has been awarded annually since 1947, and the winning paintings form an outstanding collection for the Gallery. With a current top prize of $30,000, competition is fierce, and brings in the best artists in Australia.
