cronulla coastal walk
Australia

Cronulla might just be Sydney’s most underrated ocean beach. It doesn’t have the glitz of Bondi or the dramatic ferry commute of Manly, but let me tell you what it does have: 6 km of gorgeous, flat, mostly undeveloped sand that you can easily have to yourself if you go far enough out.

Cape Woolamai
Australia

I very nearly skipped Phillip Island on the roster of Victorian excursions to take from Melbourne. All you ever hear about it is the famous Penguin Parade, and honestly I’m not super interested in schlepping a couple hours just to watch these creatures waddle onto shore at dusk.

Bondi to Coogee coastal walk
Australia

Being the non-committal person I am, I’m not sure yet if I’ll return to Sydney to live later this year. But I do know that whenever my next Sydney stint is, I’ll be spending some quality time in Bondi again.

Manly to Spit Sydney Harbour walk
Australia

After the Bondi to Coogee coastal walk, the Manly to Spit harbour walk is Sydney’s second most popular walking track. It’s nearly twice as long (10km) and lacks a dramatic ocean coastline, but its landscapes and views are much more varied.
