Sunny days in the winter means that you got to go for a afternoon walk. Really rewarding. Highly recommended.

Very nice scenic walkway, lots of beautiful lookouts. Avoid North Head if on foot, the view of Sydney is not so great compared to the Ferry ride.

If you are EVER in Sydney then Manly is a must especially this walk. A pretty tropical walk along by the sea with fabulous properties of all shapes & sizes with stunning views and the fact that it is pedestrianised is brilliant ... There are lots of stainless figurines depicting what sea life & wildlife live locally built into the... More

Manly beach and the promenade is beautiful with several cafes that serve excellent coffee and fish shacks along the walkway that are cheap but serve fresh sustainable seafood.

We visited Manly by ferry from Sydney and the views were amazing! Manly itself is a friendly seaside town with lots of cafes, shops and a beautiful beach. We walked down the main road from the ferry to the beach and enjoyed stunning views and watching the surfers. The walkway began for us by the beach and climbed gently around... More

This is another must do. Beautiful sights - lots of little kiddies on scooters. Safe well maintained walk-way. Bicycles are not allowed on the walkway on weekends.

This walk is stunning and highlights how incredibly beautiful Sydney is. The first time I walked from the Spit bridge to Manly where I had a swim and lunch and then walked back. It was a great way to spend a sunny day in Sydney. These days, I do the Clontarf Reserve to Forty Baskets Beach part of the walk... More

The hike around Manly is beautiful. Saw the beach, the ocean, the wild parrots and the largest ficus tree you can ever imagine. We happened to be there during Taste of Manly do that was an unexpected bonus. Take some water and a small snack if you haven't just eaten since it does take a little while to make the... More
