Chowder Bay is a historical maritime village set in natural bushland and the stunning harbour as a background. It is surrounded by two significant areas of open space – Clifton Gardens Reserve and Sydney Harbour National Park. Both of which are linked by walking tracks to other places of interest including Taronga Zoo, Balmoral Beach and Headland Park. Chowder Bay is a short drive to/from Mosman where groups can access supermarkets, medical facilities, pharmacies etc
Given the ease of reaching Land’s Edge Foundation Sydney Harbour via public transport, Land’s Edge recommends the use of public transport to and from the facility. In fact, Land’s Edge Foundation offers programming that encourages students themselves to learn the skills of travelling via public transport through the Land’s Edge Foundation Public Transport Challenge program. Alternatively, groups can access the facility via Sydney Buses, by private coach or vehicle, by ferry – or by foot. If required, Land’s Edge Foundation can arrange, or help groups coordinate transport to and from the facility. Land’s Edge Foundation arranges all in-program travel.
Land’s Edge Foundation Sydney Harbour covers all catering and non-complex dietary requirements for programs in this location unless groups undertaking residential programming wish to self-cater at the Land’s Edge Foundation Sydney Harbour facility.
Land’s Edge Foundation adheres to the Australia & New Zealand Food Standards Code, meeting, in particular, Standards 3.2.2 (Food Safety Practices & General Requirements) and Standard 3.2.3 (Food Premises & Equipment).
