We had planned to do a different walk while in Manly on a day trip. However, we spotted a path that lead us to Shelley Beach and on to this track. Initially, the signage wasn’t great, perhaps, that is due to you walking on private...More

We didn't do the full 3 hour walk, only about half of it, but it's a nice way to pend an afternoon. There are a lot of hills and steep slopes, though.

Start at the Spit or Manly to enjoy this magnificent walk which takes you up and down through the bush and huggs the coast and the wonderful harbour. It is a must do for visitors and a treat for locals.

A 40-minute ferry ride from Circular Quay will take
you to the famous northern beach of Manly. The beaches
here are perfect for learning to surf or spending the

a great way to experience Sydney Harbour Bay and the
Australian bush land. Along the foreshore, there are
plenty of watering holes and wine bars with excellent
cuisine. There are plenty of kid-friendly restaurants

August is a lovely time of the year for walking because it is not too hot. You can wear a jacket or jumper to start off but you will probably find that you take the jumper off once you have walked and warmed up. If it is a... More
