Manly Scenic Walkway, Sydney
(4.7/5 based on 1,100+ 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.
