You either can try to walk from Manly to Spit Bridge or vice versa, it's 10km walk if you walk along the beaches. But you can also do short cut, via new street west, which will cut 3 km journey. If you have time, it is recommended to enjoy the scenic view

Part of our AAT tour. The views were very good and the beach below looked quite inviting. We stopped off here and walked around - in July a bit cool, windy...it spring I expect this would look lovely and the water be a bit more tempting. We would not make a special trip to visit here as there is certainly... More

Beautiful views and lots of plants and birds. It is a great place for families but also for couples. The walk is in my opinion easy and lots of runners use it as well. The picnic tables are great place to sit, eat and drink in the views.

We LOVED the Manly Scenic Walk! We visited on a beautiful Sunday and I can't think of a better way to have spent that day. The place was bustling with energy and with people out enjoying the weather and the scenery was beautiful. Even if you only have 2 days in Sydney, make it a priority to visit Manly and... More

My wife & I also visited the Manly Walkway. Nice views and very well kept up. We found all the locals to be quite friendly & helpful. We stopped for a spot of tea and had a nice chat with a local lady who pointed out some very interesting local lore,

I love this walk from Spit Bridge to Manly, every piece you walk you will see an amazing nature and beauty for your eyes. In my opinion it's not a hard walk, it might take 2h 1/2 for good walkers but can be done for slower walkers if they take their time. It's better in the summer, but in beautiful... More

Do yourself a favour and head over to Manly if you come to visit Sydney. From the second you step onto that Ferry you will be amazed by the views. Do the scenic walkway to really enjoy the sites then go to any of the fabulous restaurants along the boardwalk on Manly

Very beautiful walk paths in very good condition. I am slightly awkward with my gait but could navigate the route very comfortably. The pathways are very well maintained and utilise the natural landscape in as much as steps carved out of the rocks. A bit slippy in the mud after a lot of rain. Take plenty of water as there...
