Did this walk with the family, it is obviously very long but the views over the bays are out of this world, some good cafes/restaurants along the way to stop and re fuel, a really good day out.

Then walked all around and to the beach and it was a very enjoyable day for us - we highly recommend it. Ferry leaves Circular Quay... More

Manly has several beach areas and all are gorgeous. The hike to the cliffs is up hill at times but the views are majestic. People are very helpful in guiding you to the path to follow. There is a bus if you prefer not to walk. Many restaurants and scenic view at every turn. The ferry took 25-30 minutes or... More

You walk beside the bay, then behind a waterfall, under an over-hanging rock, along the sand, through a forest where you cannot hear a car or see a house, then you burst out to a fabulous view of the harbour then plunge back in to a forest,.

Do the scenic walk, enjoy the relaxed atmophere at this part of the city and try to find one of the rare water dragons! Shelly Beach is also adorable

The views of the beach and ocean on a sunny day would cheer anyone up. The beach is clean with golden sands, the sea is a glittering blue and there are swimmers and surfers to watch. The wide smooth walkway is great for young and old alike. Lovely safe atmosphere - just wish I lived here so could visit every... More

Jump on the ferry and go to Manly while you are in Sydney, its beautiful and the ferry ride is relaxing. You can get a day hopper and get on and off as much as you like

I've done most of the walks around Sydney and the Manly Scenic Walkways is definitely one of the most picturesque. There are views from the Sydney Harbour, you pass through bushes, you see the glittering waters... This one as well as all other walks around Sydney is definitely something to try if you are tired of sightseeings and you needs... More
