Manly Scenic Walkway

unearth Sydney Harbour's hot spots and hidden treasures

On sunny days, SydneyHarbour lives up to its reputation as one of the world’s most spectacular harbours.
But you don’t need a million-dollar income to enjoy the million-dollar views. You can watch the pleasure boats and green-and-yellow commuter ferries, the swimmers and stick-chasing dogs, from the Manly Scenic Walkway.

Linking the Spit Bridge, at Seaforth, and the world-famous beach suburb of Manly this track hugs 9.5km of serpentine shoreline. Commonly called the Spit Bridge-to-Manly walk, it loops around rocky inlets crowded with yachts and out onto sandstone bluffs offering views through Sydney Heads. It meanders from rainforest pockets to golden beaches between up-market suburbs. And it ventures deep into Sydney Harbour National Park, an unexpected treat given the cost of waterfront real estate. Here joggers up their heart rates among candle-like orange banksia and hot pink fuchsia heath.

For a great day out, bus to Spit Bridge and walk to Manly. There, tuck into fish and chips at the ocean beach. Then board a late afternoon ferry and catch a silhouetted Sydney Harbour Bridge as you approach Circular Quay.
