Located on the northern shores of Sydney Harbour, Mosman offers a rich cultural life amidst beautiful bushland surrounds. Mosman is located 8 kilometers northeast of the Sydney central business district. On Sydney’s Lower North Shore, Mosman forms a peninsular between Sydney Harbour and Middle Harbour. It features a number of Sydney Harbour beaches, including Balmoral, Chinamans and Cobblers Beaches. Other attractions include Taronga Zoo, Bradleys Head and sections of Sydney Harbour National Park.
Mosman shopping centre is located along Military Road, which features many boutiques, cafes and restaurants. The shopping centre extends from the intersection with Bradley’s Head Road and Middle Head Road, continues north up past the intersection with Spit Road at Spit Junction.
It continues for some distance along both Spit Road and Military Road and extends down some of the side streets. Mosman Council has identified the early twentieth century shopping strip along Military Road as a conservation area.
