Head to the City using Sydney Ferries, from Chiswick wharf.
Just up the street visit local cafes and restaurants of varying cuisines, and Birkenhead Point is a famous outlet shopping centre located on the bay in Drummoyne.
The local bay run is a famous 7km running track nearby. Feel free to stop along the way in Lilyfield or Rozelle at one of the many cafes, or why not have a drink at the UTS Rowing Club on the deck.
Drummoyne Oval and a bay walk are located 2-5 minutes away by foot.
