Sydney Harbour EcoWalks Tours has had a rough start to 2020

As a recent start up business at the end of 2019, EcoWalks Tours not only had to face the challenges of a new business but was hampered by the periodic closure of Sydney Harbour National Park due to the high risk of fire danger.

Although the Sydney Harbour National Park was closed and a downturn in tourism due to fire danger and poor air pollution in Sydney, EcoWalks Tours collaborated with the Northern Beaches Council Manly Information Centre and Sydney hotels and hostels to boost its profile in the local area. As a result, EcoWalks Tours began conducting tours for a range of local and interstate visitors.

However, just when business was taking a positive turn, the Sydney Harbour National Park was closed once again in late March due to the COVID19 pandemic social distancing regulations. In order to keep business expenses low and taking precautionary steps, EcoWalks Tours temporarily closed on 31 March 2020.

Winning this year’s Local Business Award will boost EcoWalks Tours’ profile in the local and regional tourism industry and therefore, encourage more visitors to come and learn about the natural, social and historical heritage within Sydney Harbour National Park.

Beehive Battery, Georges Head

In 1871, James Barnet of the Colonial Architects Office in Sydney designed this harbour fortification.

This battery was constructed out of the sandstone sea cliffs of Georges Head to house three 10 inch smooth bored 68 pounder guns.

These emplacements domes were cut out of the solid rock with a small opening through the cliff for each gun.

Also, the field of fire for each gun was very limited. The battery was designed to protect a only small section of the western channel in the harbour.

So, join EcoWalks Tours for a scenic and educational walking tour of Sydney Harbour National Park to visit and learn about such historic relics like the Beehive Battery of Georges Head.
