Picturesque scenery on this section of track with some birdlife due to number of banksias. There is toilets but no other facilities within the park which borders a navy base. Reasonably easy and accessible from Sydney.

This place is full of beauty but limited buses, specially on weekends so plan well before you go and track buses for your return journey. Car owners can go anytime.

Sydney Harbour is one of the greatest in the world and the National Park helps to protect this wonder. Comprising the harbour, islands and foreshore areas this area provides numerous opportunities to explore.

Very disappointed with the walk. Rutted out track, overgrown, lots of tree debris. Level 3 really because of the uneven corrugated track surface. The initial path was ok then not so great. Some nice native flora on the way. The light house has some spectacular...More

We spent half a day walking the gentle trails. Some hill climbing but nothing too strenuous. Wear sensible shoes, take a drink abd some sun lotion and youll be set.

We hiked from Shelly Beach to North Head. There's great views and breezes when you get close to the water. Otherwise the trails were pretty hot! Stop by the Bella Vista Cafe to cool down with some smoothies and cold water!

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
