No visit would be complete without going to Manly Beach if you have 3-4 hours and you should get the fast ferry. There is so much to see and you can eat right on the water there or walk the beach or hang out for...More

Take the bus from the city to the Spit Reserve and follow the scenic pathway all the way to Manly. It is about 10km (6.2 miles). Wear good hiking shoes or sandals and carry a water bottle. The views along the way are simply breathtaking.

This walk is a bit more difficult than the Bondi Coastal walk as there isn't always a concrete path but it is well worth trying. Great views of the quieter side of Sydney, make sure you take plenty of water

Get started at Manly by shopping for your trip: drinks, snacks at the shop at the jetty. The walk takes longer than expected! It is up and down, through wilderness and along beaches for swimming. At the end, take a bus back to Sydney!

The walk south from Manly Beach towards Shelly Beach and North Head is spectacular! The views over the water are amazing, the walk takes you passed swimming beaches, lookouts, places to grab a drink or nibble etc. Take your camera and be sure to wear...More

This is a fantastic way to get out of the city for a few hours. We caught the bus from Wynyard and commenced at the Spit Bridge. The walk was approx 3.5 hours and only a reasonable fitness level is required. There are a few...More

Oh my goodness. This is an outstanding 10k hike. The landscape, and the views are breathtaking. Allow yourself 3 hours to complete the hike. Plenty of places to refresh after the hike, before taking the ferry back to Sydney.

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
day sun-tanning. The walk from Spit Bridge to Manly is
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

Last year I have been there in the last week of July. It was sunny and beautiful as it is. In the evening you need warm clothes and you might need a light jacket in the afternoon.
