Manly Scenic Walkway, Sydney

4.8
#3 of 10 in Trails in Sydney
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. Using our custom trip planner, Sydney attractions like Manly Scenic Walkway can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • Lots to see and good views of Manly Beach and Cabbage Tree Bay on the way to Shelly Beach. Quirky little sculptures along the way. Enjoyed seeing the Lifeguards practise with their lifeboats!  more »
  • THis is one of the best walkways in the Sydney region. It was a simply stunning summer walk that my son and I undertook. There were beautiful vantage points literally everywhere!  more »
