you can cut the walk off at many points if you dont want to continue to the Spit bridge, Its a challenge to older knees, but the views are magnificent.

Get to Manly by ferry, walk straight towards the ocean along the Corso, turn right and keep going along the water's edge (Marine Parade) till you come to Shelley Beach, or go further on up onto the headland or clifftops. This is a great little...More

My wife and I decided to take the advice of previous reviewers, walking from Spit Bridge. We used a taxi to take us from our hotel in central Sydney, the fare costing a reasonable 34 AUD. Crossing the draw bridge and taking the well-labelled stair...More

The first part from The Spit to past Clontarf can be good (I saw a lot of lizards plus a bush turkey) but is also a bit suburban and overrun with joggers, and the final part near Manly is similar. It really gets good when...More

This is a difficult but delightful long hike. 9 or 10km takes a solid 4.5 hours. Lots of stairs up and down over and over, going up 6 flights to the bluffs then down them to delightful secluded beaches then back up again. Whew! But...More

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
