a great way to get a taste of the natural side of Sydney is to get a ferry from Circular Quay to Manly then do the walk from Manly to The Spit. This walk through parts of Sydney Harbour National Park offers stunning views as you walk the coastline and cliffs of the scenic part of Sydney Harbour away from... More

Hop on the ferry with your Oppo card on $2.50 Sundays and head on over to this beautiful park! Grab a gelato and have a picnic on the park, people watch, exercise or just chill.

So, if you get the chance to explore the park, pls do so. Pick a great weather day, hire a boat, and cruise around finding the quiet little private spots like Athol Bay and moor up in front of Taronga Zoo. The whole park from what I have seen is well kept, the Harbour is a wonderful place to just... More

So much to discover, with ferries going everywhere and anywhere. You might see some sharks swimming about

As a city, Sydney is not my favourite, but is enhanced by the history on one hand and the wonderful parks and walks in places such as these parks.A city has to be more than glass towers and these parks are just wonderful to escape to.

This is almost a hidden secret - everyone has heard of Sydney's famous beaches but few seem to know of parks such as these. There are several locations which together form the Park but there are many options of either seeing local fauna, wildlife , perhaps even have a swim at one of the several beaches.

We discovered a beautiful little suburb with superb beaches and the Sydney Harbour National Park. We started our walk at Manly Surf Beach and contiued... More
