Manly Scenic Walkway, Sydney

4.7
#3 of 8 in Trails in Sydney
It's only a few miles from the center of Sydney, yet the stunning nature of the Manly Scenic Walkway seems a world away. Along this series of walkways, you'll pass by Aboriginal sites and harborside towns and meander through areas of subtropical rainforest. Opt for the Manly-to-Spit Bridge section, a 10 km (6.25 mi) trail that brings you the northern head of the Sydney Harbour National Park and the entrance to the harbor. From here, you'll have excellent views of the Sydney skyline across the water.

Where to stay in Sydney

Sydney offers visitors hundreds of lodging options in its central area, with choices suitable for most budgets. As expected in a major tourist destination, harbor views play a major role in determining room prices. Expect to pay more for ocean-view suites, especially if you visit at the peak of the tourist season or around big city events. If you don't need to stay in the center of Sydney, consider budget-friendly hotels near the airport, or look for smaller roadside motels in the city's South West neighborhood.
