My wife and I decided to take the advice of previous reviewers, walking from Spit Bridge. We used a taxi to take us from our hotel in central Sydney, the fare costing a reasonable 34 AUD. Crossing the draw bridge and taking the well-labelled stair...More

The first part from The Spit to past Clontarf can be good (I saw a lot of lizards plus a bush turkey) but is also a bit suburban and overrun with joggers, and the final part near Manly is similar. It really gets good when...More

Wow, wow, wow! A wonderful walk along the coast, from Spit Bridge to Manly. One of the highlights of our Sydney visit. We enjoyed seeing crystal-clear water, some wildlife (especially lizards, birds), cool neighborhoods, beach as well as cliff sections, & awesome views. Interesting &...More

This is a difficult but delightful long hike. 9 or 10km takes a solid 4.5 hours. Lots of stairs up and down over and over, going up 6 flights to the bluffs then down them to delightful secluded beaches then back up again. Whew! But...More

We took the Manly fast ferry over on a somewhat cloudy day. First we needed food and went to the banana blossoms. We highly recommend. We rented bikes to bike up to the north head walk. There is a steep hill to watch out for....More

We enjoyed our "bushwalking" experience during this 10K! Saw a wild turkey, beautiful beaches and had a moderately challenging walk, mainly because someone in our group wanted to rush. Not for cruisers but for those who want to experience Australia and this area like residents,...More

The cliffs, the private beaches, the exercise! What is not to love! It can take 3-4 hours but is the most scenic and beautiful walk. Catch carb to Clontarf Beach and then walk the amazing cliff faces, through winding paths, steep staircases made of rock...More

Took the 180 bus from Sydney CBD, across the Harbour Bridge to Spit Bridge. Got off the bus, walked across Spit Bridge then under it to start this AWESOME WALK to Manly. The walk is about 11 kms total. Pack a swim suit and stop...More

A 40-minute ferry ride from Circular Quay will take
you to the famous northern beach of Manly. The beaches
here are perfect for learning to surf or spending the
day sun-tanning. The walk from Spit Bridge to Manly is
a great way to experience Sydney Harbour Bay and the
Australian bush land. Along the foreshore, there are
plenty of watering holes and wine bars with excellent
cuisine. There are plenty of kid-friendly restaurants
