When you get off the ferry, you have to walk up to the zoo ticket booth. It’s a nice little stroll and you can see the whole city from up the top. When you actually get to the top of Taronga Zoo, it’s just stunning....More

Okay but minuses as well as pluses Being from San Diego, we have some thoughts on zoos but never expect our experience to be quite the same elsewhere. Even allowing for that, the zoo was somewhat disappointing. From downtown Sidney a ferry is recommended. This...More

This is a great walk through some unspoilt countryside around the coastline. Several spots to stop and take in lovely views. The route has some climbing but isn’t overly arduous and the pathway in general is well maintained.

Taronga zoo was well worth the 3 1/2 hour walk around. Even then we didn’t see it all. The Seal show was a must, times are displayed or you can ask a member of staff. The feeding of the giraffes and koalas was great also....More

Our harbour is one of the most pristine I've seen on my travels and it took an overseas visitor to make me get out and see it. It's full of surprises, small beaches and bays, Clifton Gardens, just gorgeous, sights of war bunkers and historic...More

We did the section from the Spit to Manly (and back again, about 20km). The path is generally good, some stairs and steps but not too much climb and descent. Great harbour views and part through bushland with views towards the heads. There are some...More

With a variety of outdoor attractions, the
sophisticated harbor suburb of Mosman has something
for everyone. Shoppers can stroll Military Road for
its unique offering of antiques, designer labels, and
hip restaurants and cafes. Nature lovers can take in
spectacular bushwalks like the Taronga to Balmoral
walk, while families can enjoy snorkeling in the
sheltered beaches of Balmoral Beach or scuba diving at

The pathway is along the coast and easy to follow, there are a few sections where you go on the road, one that comes to mind is where 40 Baskets Reserve is at Balgowlah. The yards of residences skirt the water at this point... More

Most the ferries route for both Taronga Zoo and Manly Beach only leave from Circular Quay so you would have to go via CQ for the trip. Connecting journey are not yet available during my last visit last Sept 2017.
