I lived near this walkway for more years than I care to count and never got tired of it. It breaks down into several doable sections and the entire walk is really a half day well spent but ending up a long way from your...More

I had heard of the Manly Scenic Walkway, after having already done the Bondi to Coogee Walk and wondered if the latter could be bettered. Well, the Manly Scenic Walkway was exactly that! In fact to merely call it scenic is an understatement! I did...More

I wanted to explore North Head and found it easy to follow the signs to North Head. It was great to see the beaches that you don't see over on the ferry. There is a little cafe for a coffee break before continuing on. The...More

Absolutely beautiful views of Manly. You could easily take kids or walk your dog here. If you're doing the Manly to Spit walk it is quite long, so I'd recommend a lot of water and some snacks. Not a ton of rest rooms along the...More

From the moment we boarded the ferry it was a magical day.The vibe is low key and mellow. Plenty of spots for photo ops and friendly shop owners abound. Take the stroll to Manly and continue to Shelly Beach , you will not be disappointed

It was a nice walk, but nothing special. I watched kids at surf camp, but nothing great. It was difficult to find a good restaurant for lunch. It was nice, just didn't live up to the hype.

Great walk to do. Much more enjoyable if there isn't too much wind off the water thought it is fairly well sheltered. ON a sunny day and warm it is magic.

Train and ferry travel easy and accessible for wheelchair users. Although busy, The Manly Scenic Walkway is also accessible. A couple of spots require a quick push from an able bod, but generally accessible and recommended.

Get the ferry from Sydney across to Manley, a lovely peaceful area and well worth the visit. There's a nice walk around the edge sea with lots of bronze sculptures.

A 40-minute ferry ride from Circular Quay will take
you to the famous northern beach of Manly. The beaches
here are perfect for learning to surf or spending the
day sun-tanning. The walk from Spit Bridge to Manly is
a great way to experience Sydney Harbour Bay and the
Australian bush land. Along the foreshore, there are
plenty of watering holes and wine bars with excellent
cuisine. There are plenty of kid-friendly restaurants
