We did this walk after getting the ferry to Manly. The walk is relatively easy with some stairs that are a bit tricky. The signage is Ok if not brilliant.
The beaches are gorgeous and it would be great to stop and have a swim...More
A few stairs along the trail but otherwise relatively easy hike. Make sure to leave enough time to stop for a swim along the way as you'll pass a number of beaches (some more secluded than others). At the end of the hike make sure...More
The walk is a nice antidote to the throng on Manly beach. The first part is a fairly easy walk along good paths along the coast of surburban Manly, it doesn’t take too long to get out into the preserve area though but take plenty...More
Very relaxed walk. Lots of places to stop off. We prefer Manly to Bondi. Don't forget when you get off ferry to walk to the Ocean via the lanes opposite the ferry terminal as well as along the beach by the ferry.
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
as well, especially along the family-oriented areas like Shelly Beach. An excellent way to experience Manly is to rent a bike and explore the dedicated bike paths and off road trails. The North Head National Park is another must-see. Located on the southern tip of Manly, North Head National Park offers great bushwalks and panoramic views of the city.

August is a lovely time of the year for walking because it is not too hot. You can wear a jacket or jumper to start off but you will probably find that you take the jumper off once you have walked and warmed up. If it is a little cold, take layers. Take a water bottle too because you will still need this along the way.
If you do the whole walk, when you arrive in Manly, it will be too cold for most people to swim, but it is nice to look at the beach. You can also walk along to Shelly Beach where you can have lunch at the Boathouse cafe. There are also lots of other food options in manly as well.
