A fun day out is to take the slow ferry to Manly, explore the town and then head out of town along the boardwalk to Shelly Beach. Then continue on for a beautiful loop walk up over the hills. Gorgeous views and a great walk, where you truly can get away from the hustle and bustle. Not exactly a stroll,... More

We walked along the boardwalk to Shelly Beach. One of my daughters was in a wheel chair and it was easy to get around. Another day I walked to the opposite end of the beach. Fun watching the surfers!

This is a great place for a day trip. Take a ferry from Circular Quay to Manly. There are lots of shops and funny street vendors on the weekends. Highly recommended.

This is a fantastic walk, but it is one were you need to take your time and absorb the views, this walk may take longer than some of the easier walks around Sydney but if your up to it, it is a walk you will never forget, especially the views

Great walk for all those who love getting away from the crowds for a few hours. A bit more difficult than the coogee coastal walk as the path is not paved and crosses beaches and up small hills!

This is a very easy walk with plenty of great scenery. A must do when in Sydney. Plan on having lunch in Manly along the beach front or next to the ferry terminal.

I really enjoyed the walkway to get out of the crowds on the beach. Super views and right on the waters edge. Only dislike was that cyclists and skateboarders at times, I had to dodge, although not officially allowed..
