Manly Scenic Walkway, Sydney

(4.7/5 based on 1,200+ reviews on the web)
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. See Manly Scenic Walkway and all Sydney has to offer by arranging your trip with our Sydney tour planner.

  • We took the Ferry from Circular Quay to visit Manly Beach. We are not beach people but the walk was great. Seeing everyone enjoying the afternoon and especially the surfers.  more »
  • This walk is a must. <Manly is so beautiful! The beach is divine, water crystal clear and bars, restaurants and cafes are plenty. Local or tourist, friuends or family - this is the place to go!  more »
  • This is a good walk to do with a small group. It's nice to get out of the hustle and bustle of the city to just enjoy some nature fairly close to the city.  more »
