Not circular so work out best way to return.I did it in 2 sections-castle rock and fairlight.Lovely to look at the houses and dream of living there but... More

Nice short walk along the coast. Great views over the ocean. A bit macabre with all the suicide signs. You should walk here during a storm, to experience the forces of the ocean.

This is a nice walkway. We didn't find it to be anything super special, but it is a nice place to visit.

We traveled from Circular Quay to Manly Wharf by the ferry. Then took a leisurely walk from the wharf, through the Manly's mall and to the beach. Nice sunny winter day. Lots of choices for lunch menus because there are plenty of restaurants and take-aways.

This is a beautiful walk, taking in the wonderful scenery which offers incomparable views. Sydney Harbour has to be the most beautiful in the world and this walkway offers a wonderful opportunity to take it in while getting fit and feeling virtuous.

Ideally walk if you are staying in Sydney as it is a terrific ferry trip there and back. There is plenty of options for a great coffee as you set out and given it is so close to Sydney you'd be surprised by the natural bush scenery. You can even enjoy a local brew at 4 Pines Brewery at the... More

A beautiful walk along the beach. Great for tourists and locals. Can get a bit crowded throughout the day. There are water refill stations available which is handy.
