 Curlew Camp Artists’ Walk – Mosman

Mosman Bay Tom Roberts 1894

Mosman Bay Painted by Tom Roberts 1894

In 1890 Camp Curlew became an artists’ retreat. The artists’ camp was set up on the eastern shore of Little Sirius Cove, on Sydney Harbour by clothing manufacturer Reuben Brasch and his brothers. The Brasch Family owned and operated a department store Reuben Brasch Pty Ltd on Oxford Street, opposite Hyde Park.

The camp was a weekend retreat for the brothers, but it soon became a gathering place for artists, writers and musicians, who wanted to enjoy the camaraderie of fellow ‘bohemians’. Women would visit rather than stay overnight due to the strict social and sexual conventions at the time.

The artists took inspiration from the local natural beauty of the surroundings. Many well known artist from the Australian School of Impressionism, like Tom Roberts, Frederick McCubbin, Charles Conder and Arthur Streeton took inspiration from staying at Camp Curle and created many famous paintings.

Camp Curlew was abandoned after the siting of Taronga Zoo in the area in 1912.

In 2007 the Curlew Camp Artists’ Walk was developed by Mosman Council and Taronga Zoo with financial assistance from the Sharing Sydney Harbour Access Program and the NSW Heritage Office. The walk is over 1.6 km long and extends from the South Mosman ferry wharf at Musgrave Street and continues along to the Taronga Zoo ferry wharf, following the route used by visitors to the Camp during the 1890s.

A visit to Georges Head is a must for all military history buffs. The Georges Head battery is in Mosman, on the northern side of Sydney Harbour.

Some tunnels are dark and uneven underfoot – it’s a good idea to bring a torch and wear appropriate footwear.

Then, walk around the headlands to see World War II gun emplacements and enjoy some spectacular views of the gateway to Sydney Harbour, South Head and North Head.

John Le Gay Brereton Wroke the Poem ANZAC.

“Within my heart I hear the cry
Of loves that suffer, souls that die,
And you may have no praise from me
For warfare’s vast vulgarity;
Only the flag of love, unfurled
For peace above a weeping world,
I follow, though the fiery breath
Of murder shrivel me in death.
Yet here I stand and bow my head
To those whom other banners led,
Because within their hearts the clang
Of Freedom’s summoning trumpets rang,
Because they welcomed grisly pain
And laughed at prudence, mocked at gain,
With noble hope and courage high,
And taught our manhood how to die.
Praise, praise and love be theirs who came
From that red hell of stench and flame,
Staggering, bloody, sick, but still
Strong with indomitable will,
Happy because, in gloomiest night,
Their own hearts drummed them to the fight. “

Fires are prohibited in Mosman’s parks and reserves.

Mosman Council does not install BBQs on any reserves – you are permitted to bring your own as long as the BBQ is gas only and above the ground. There should be no naked flames/spit roasts etc that require coals.

If there is a total fire ban in force then no BBQs are permitted at all.
