Brett Whiteley immortalised Lavender Bay in his 1975 oil on canvas ‘The Balcony 2’. The deep blue hues of the ocean contrasting the silvery spider’s web strokes that make up the Harbour Bridge; the glow of Luna Park below and the colour splashes of the sail boats skiting along the water. It is this view that overwhelms your experience at Sails on Lavender Bay. The vantage is slightly further around the bay, but the overwhelming magic of the view remains as it was 30 years ago. Nestled in beside the ferry wharf, this restaurant offers both the action of the harbour and the tranquillity of the ocean.
