We like to get out and about on Sundays which usually means a long walk to take in the views and just relax and recharge a little, we are so lucky to live in Sydney which has so many walks which makes it pretty hard to choose our favourites, but we will give it a go!
Coogee to Bondi
This is on our door step and it’s an amazing cliff top coastal walk. The Bondi to Coogee walk is 6km long in Sydney’s eastern suburbs. The walk has insane views, beautiful beaches and there are plenty of places to rest or have a swim along the way as well as cafés to grab a bite to eat at. This is a show stopper walk and I take every visitor I have from overseas on this walk and it never fails to impress.
Spit to Manly
This is an epic walk and one of our favourites, we are slightly crazy, so we usually walk to Manly and back instead of getting the bus back from Manly to Spit where we park. The walk is 10km one way and passes through Sydney Harbour National Park, the views are incredible of the entrance to the harbour and the city. The walk is quite hilly and up and down quite a few stairs, so it’s best to go early before its gets too hot during summer and remember to take water with you! The walkway is well signposted with loads of information boards along the way.
Barrenjoey Lighthouse Track
Starting at Palm Beach, once you reach the long (mostly uphill) climb up to Barrenjoey Lighthouse you’ll be rewarded with sweeping views of Pittwater Beach and the national park. Take your camera as the views from the top are amazing – stretching from Broken Bay across to Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park, on towards the Central Coast. Afterwards you can have a swim and a bite to eat at the ever-busy Boathouse at Palm Beach.
Rose Bay to Watsons Bay
This walk is one of the most scenic coastal walking trails in Sydney, you get to see secluded beaches, beautiful parks and picturesque bays, while enjoying panoramic views of the city and the harbour! You pass through Milk Beach, Parsley Bay and Nielsen Park. With enough facilities such as toilets and cafe’s along the way, this walking trail is perfect for all outdoor enthusiasts, from young families to professional hikers just remember to take your camera!
