The Bradley’s Head trail is an absolutely fantastic way to experience Sydney’s stunning scenery in a slightly different way to normal. The trail is super easy to get to on the Ferry to Taronga Zoo - it costs about $3 and takes about 15 minutes....More

One of my favourite ways to spend a Sunday in Sydney. Is less busy than the famous 'Bondi to Coogee' walk but has equally stunning views. Is a relatively easy walk with great places to stop along the way and enjoy the harbour energy.
