Here is your chance to travel to the bush without really leaving the city. The hike takes you into a rain forest type area where one will see lizards-big and small-, Aboriginal artifacts, scenery that provides a look at the city from afar. Treat yourself to an ice cream cone once in Manly. You can take the ferry back to Sydney harbor or the bus. Hike takes about 3 hours or longer if you stop to read all the informational signs. A hike well worth the taking.

Upon exiting the Manly Ferry Terminal, a quick walk across the intersection puts youon this walkway. It's extremely wide and shady with lots of benches and fountains for one to enjoy. There are lots of shops and places to eat as you make your way to the beach area.

We loved the walk from Manly to Shelley Beach. We also went to St Patrick's estate which was worth a look

We took the ferry from Sydney to Manly and while it was crowded... completely worth it. The beach is lovely (soft sand, beautiful water), the food is better-than-average beach food and the people watching is fun. We rented towels for $5 and read on the beach for a few hours. Bring your sunscreen, though!

We did the whole hike from Manly to Spit and it was some of the most beautiful coastline we've ever been to! It's probably considered moderate difficulty, and you'll definitely need good sneakers or hiking shoes. Some of the walk is along several different sandy beaches too, but most is in the cover of trees rocky and small parts are actually paved. Highly recommend this for people looking to get outdoors and experience the beautiful sights and nature on the coast. If I were to do it again, I would probably do as another reviewer said and take the bus to Spit and walk to Manly (would have been great to have a nice ice cream at the end of the long hike).
