Lots to see and good views of Manly Beach and Cabbage Tree Bay on the way to Shelly Beach. Quirky little sculptures along the way. Enjoyed seeing the Lifeguards practise with their lifeboats!

THis is one of the best walkways in the Sydney region. It was a simply stunning summer walk that my son and I undertook. There were beautiful vantage points literally everywhere!

Great walk with benches at various points overlooking the harbor. Go as far or cut it short depending on your time and fitness level. Nice to do on an early morning.

First it's a great excuse to take a ferry ride from Circular Quay, Manly is fabulous and the coastal walk is a must when visiting, not too arduous and a great way to see what Manly has to offer.

After basking in the sun on Manly beach it was time to explore a bit. Walked along this beautiful path in fantastic summer weather. You should do it, you won't be dissappointed.

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
