The Malabar headland walk follows the coastline between Maroubra beach and Malabar beach. Some of scenery is second to none in the Sydney area. In summer take water and wear shoes because it can get very hot. We started at Malabar, walked to Maroubra along...More

Absolutely lovely coastal walk in an indigenous forest. We did it several times. Add an urban coastal walk from Maroubra to Bondi Beach for the more energetic. We took the bus back.

I highly recommend the new boardwalk opened between Malabar and Maroubra. This walk is along side the cliffs and the view is outstanding. You can also see whales passing by if you happen to be there at the whale season. Very nice way to spend...More
