I’ve said it before and I’ll undoubtedly say it again and again: One of the best things about Sydney is all of the harbour walks and coastal walks you can do here.
With the popularity of Manly Beach and the Spit to Manly walk, I’m really surprised that more people don’t know about another awesome Sydney Harbour walk in the area.
The Manly to North Head walk (technically called the North Head Sanctuary Loop) is an ~8km walking track that starts from above Shelly Beach and loops up and around to the end of North Head, aka the outermost point of Sydney Harbour.
In my opinion, the Bondi to Coogee coastal walk is the best way to spend a half day in Sydney.
The full walk is only 6km, but you’ll definitely want to allot more time to stop and enjoy the beaches and views along the way.
After the Bondi to Coogee coastal walk, the Spit to Manly walk is Sydney’s second most popular walking track. It’s nearly twice as long and lacks an ocean coastline, but its landscapes and views are much more varied.
The latest on my quest to tackle ALLLLLL the Sydney Harbour walks? The Hermitage Foreshore Track, which runs along the waterfront on the harbour side of Vaucluse.
Rose Bay. The track begins shortly after the sand ends here.
If you’ve spent any amount of time in, or researching things to do in Sydney, then you undoubtedly know that the Bondi to Coogee coastal walk is an absolute must-do in Sydney.
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.
Remember that time I took a roadtrip to Wilsons Promontory with 3 young European backpackers, ate nothing but ham and cheese sandwiches for 3 days, and helped them hand wash our rental car at the end because they were convinced we had to before returning it?
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.
