Little Sirius Cove is a 250 m wide, 550 m deep U-shaped bay that faces due south into the harbour. At the northern end of the cove are two sheltered beaches (SH 30 & 31). On the eastern side of the cove is a 30 m long pocket of sand (SH 30) that faces east across the outer sand flats of the main beach. A sea scout building and old slipway occupy the southern side of the beach, with large rocks bordering the northern end, and several dinghies usually pulled up on the beach. The main beach (SH 31) is a 100 m long strip of high tide sand, backed by a curving rock seawall then a level park and playground (Fig. 4.229). The beach is fronted by 100 m wide intertidal sand flats, which are protected by a netted tidal pool, which crosses from one side to the other side of the bay. The cove is located at the end of Sirius Cove Road and can be reached on foot from the zoo and Bradleys Head via the harbour walking track.

Swimming

All the northern Sydney Harbour beaches are relatively safe under normal low wave to calm conditions. Some like Sandy Bay and Sirius Cove never receive ocean waves, while Washaway, Reef and Obelisk commonly receive low swell. The biggest hazard to children and non-swimmers is the often deep water off many of the beaches, and boating activity off some of the beaches.

Surfing

None, except during huge outside swell when surfers head for Dobroyd Point, Grotto Head, Edwards and Balmoral beaches.

Fishing

The entire harbour shoreline attract thousands of anglers, with most fishing from the relatively safe rocks and many jetties, as well as off the beaches fronted by deeper water.
