Middle Head / Gubbah Gubbah in Sydney Harbour National Park is a captivating place with expansive views and its remnant bushland. It immerses visitors in another world only moments from the city.

This place has a military association extending back to the turn of the nineteenth century, when a battery and magazine was built above Obelisk Bay to guard the Harbour. Its deep time connects to long, slow natural formation processes while Aboriginal occupation and cultural attachments have continued through the generations.

NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service engaged GML to develop a Heritage Interpretation Plan to engage visitors in the history and heritage from Aboriginal sites, natural environment features and military assets.

The Plan was developed in collaboration with landscape architects, digital assets and education team as well as community stakeholders to create a cohesive visitor experience that integrates the headlands within the larger Sydney Harbour Scenic Walk landscape.
