Cruising in Gay Sydney - A Guide to Hooking up!
Always Cruise Responsibly! Know the laws in your area, be aware and sensitive to the local community & NEVER expose minors or anyone who is not consenting to sexually explicit conduct. Use common sense & good judgment to Cruise safely & responsibly!
Sydney is famous for its world class beaches and deservedly so. The beaches are also popular places to meet with guys looking for fun in the sun.
The two gayest beaches are Harbour Beaches, both of them allowing nude bathing: Obelisk Beach and Lady Jane Beach. They're not easy to get to without a boat, but worth the hassle.
The best way to Obelisk is to spend the coin and take a water taxi from the south side of the Harbour. Take water, food and sunscreen. By the way, the Enchanted Forest above the lovely beach has a great reputation for sex. Don't bring valuables.
If you prefer something more tame, North Bondi beach has attracted a strong gay following. It's a short walk north of Bondi beach, the world-famous beach located in the close-by eastern suburb of Waverley. Easy to get to.
If you're finding it a bit chilly for the beach, check out Andrew "Coy" Charlton Pool (1C Mrs Macquaries Road, The Domain).Its minimalist lines have made it popular with Sydney's gays -- and you'll see them strutting gym-carved bodies around this pool.
Lady Jane Beach
Lady Jane Beach is located just at the mouth of the Sydney Harbour, where Sydney Harbour meets the open sea, the Tasman Sea. From Lady Jane beach you have the most spectacular views which any beach can boast to have. Apart form the gorgeous naked man frolicking around you; you also have the Sydney Harbour in the background, Obelisk Gay Nude beach just across the harbour directly opposite Lady Jane, Manly Harbour to your right and the open ocean if you walk to the lighthouse.
Be aware that it is restricted parking and you do have to pay to stay there. Parking attendants are in force and impose high fines!
Once you reach Watsons Bay Hotel, walk past it, turning left towards the lighthouse, you'll walk past the entrance to the army barracks on your right and then a small car park also on your right. The first beach you come across is Camp Cove beach which is a very family beach but with great eye candy!
To the right of the beach, there are wooden stairs leading to a small track. Walk up these stairs. You'll pass a canon used in the war to protect Sydney Harbour, continue up the road past the toilets and down the track until you see the sign for Lady Jane beach.
If you wish see the light house, continue along the track before heading down the beach, right up to the mouth of Sydney Harbour, it is only an extra 5 minutes and well worth the effort.
Once you return to Lady Jane beach entrance, just walk down the stairs to the beach.
- If you prefer to suntan, swim or just have a good perve, park your ass on the beach.
- If your prefer suntan and a bit of action, turn right and head straight past the beach onto the rocks. Head as far as the end of the rocks near South Head, the mouth of the harbour, you're bound to either see or find some action along the way. Don't just watch, join along, most guyz are keen for extra fun!
- If you just want to suntan but have a bird's eye view of the beach, turn left immediately after the last step down and head straight up the rocks and find yourself somewhere to park your towel and bum! If you get bored you can always continue along the rocks for a great view of Sydney Harbour and the Harbour Bridge. You might even find some fun if you wander off along the rocks!
