The Manly Scenic Walk

What you can expect

This wonderful public walk shows off many aspects of what makes Sydney especially beautiful as a capital city. The blended beauty of bush and beach are displayed in their entirety here, and the walk - which starts from the Spit Bridge - showcases picturesque parks of the city's middle and north harbours with plenty of scenic spots and small detours to take in along the way. A relatively leisurely walk, there's lots to see on the Manly Scenic Walkway; keep an eye out for lovely and colourful wildflowers, large lizards basking in the sun, rocky shores and of course, vivid blue waters. The walk culminates in the suburb of Manly itself, which carries an upbeat and upmarket atmosphere with plenty of nice spots to dine as a reward for your efforts.
