I caught the bus from Bondi Junction Train Station to Bondi Beach and started walking north towards Watsons Bay hugging the coast as much as I could. There are a number of parks on the cliff top where you can walk with great ocean views...More

The cliff top walk from Watson’s Bay to Bondi is around 7 km and certainly a worthwhile experience. Views of the sandstone cliffs, ocean and back to Sydney’s skyline are magnificent. Safety is not an issue. There are several viewpoints along the way, with sturdy...More

Unless you have google to help you give a perspective of where you are, I would say this walk has almost NO proper guiding instructions or directional arrows of any sort. So you just have to venture and walk, even on unmarked "trails" or grass...More

Great walk and easy to do with children (without a pram). The views were amazing and it was better than I had expected. It really is a beautiful part of the world.

A sudden plan that turned out to be one of the best walks through the scenic beauty . With young kids too we didnt have any problem as the path was beautiful without much of trouble and we thoroughly enjoyed the walk .

The walk along the cliff tops is not strenuous, many sections would be wheelchair friendly. Easily reached by ferry and a short walk or by public bus so suitable for tourists without a car. A good spot for whale watching or viewing Sydney to Hobart...More

This walk is unbelievable. When approaching the cliffs via Gap Bluff the view broadens towards the ocean and cliffs. Don't forget to go up the cliffs on both sides.
