About this location
Bradleys Head is another place where military history and stunning landscapes combine to offer a complete harbour experience. Just next to Taronga Zoo, the convict-built battery at Bradleys Head was built after four American warships arrived in Sydney Harbour undetected in 1839. Sydneysiders were feeling uneasy so a circular parapet was later installed to enhance Sydney's protection. Today, the mast of HMAS Sydney (I) towers over the parapet as a striking monument to the WWI warship. Defence ditches, added in the late 19th century after British troops left Sydney and remnants of earlier fortications are other features of this unique harbourside location.
