We took the ferry from Circular Quay to Taronga and headed right from the wharf to join the 1.3km walk (one way) to Bradley's Head. For us it wasn't a particularly taxing distance but the surfaces are varied and uneven, keep an eye out for...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.
