There are a number of parts to this walk and we certainly didn't cover it all. Each part is different, and we did get a bit lost at time, but you can't go far wrong, and there is plenty to see. Be prepared to have to go more than once to see it all.

We found Manly a lovely place for all age groups!The bars and resteraunts were busy when we were there and the walk along by the water was great.Even the ferry ride to get there was enjoyable and we both agreed we could live there!!!!!! Our son lives in Bondi, but Manly is for everybody.

Manly itself has many beautiful places to visit but this is the one that leads the pack. The walk is a decent size taking 2+ hours but if you take your time and enjoy the private beaches and viewpoints it will obviously take a lot longer.

This walkway is always worth doing as we did it on a sunny day and one gets to look out on the Manly beach and enjoy the vista.15 minutes to Shelley beach.Unfortuneatley the restaurant at Shelley beach is closed for renovations so take some water.Nice coffee spot half way.

Whilst you are over in Manly area, you have to check out this walk. Why not try and run it instead! Many people do and you will want to take a stop and absorb the beauty of Australia.
