“pretty good way to spend the afternoon”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 October 2013

This is an easy - medium walk. Mostly easy but halfway through there are a few stairs. There are some pretty breathtaking views and it is a nice way to 'escape' the city for the afternoon. The walk took us about 3 hrs including scenic breaks. I'd recommend adding this to your sydney itinerary.

You need walking shoes and at least a couple bottles of water.

We started at the Spitt Bridge and walked to Manly. I think this is a the better way.

“Lovely stroll”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 October 2013

A nice stroll along the water with many good photo opportunities. Thought the penguin crossing signs were a kick. We turned around at the nature preserve entrance due to the fire warning, but it was a nice walk.
