Bondi to Coogee

Are you even from Sydney if you haven't done this walk yet? Our list wouldn't be a very good one if it didn't include this 6km walk which shows off just some the best of what Sydney has to offer. This walk can be completed in about two hours, but why not stretch it out and enjoy the views and beaches.

ANZAC Bridge to Pyrmont Bridge

If you're not too much of a fan of the bush, you can still enjoy a walk closer into the CBD. Cross the ANZAC Bridge to Blackwattle bay, and perhaps fit in time for lunch at the Sydney Fish Market... Then, continue through to Darling Harbour and into the CBD on the pyrmont Bridge and enjoy fabulous views of Cockle Bay.


Cockatoo Island

This little island is a UNESCO world heritage site, with quite a history. It has amazing views of the Parramatta River, and it used to be a convict colony and industrial island. Explore the island, rent a BBQ for lunch and learn more about this part of your city.

Chinamans Beach to Balmoral Beach

Take the Parriwi Lighthouse Walking Track up for stunning views of Middle Harbour and then follow the rocky path to Chinamans Beach. This is only accessible at low tide, but totally worth it. Check out the fancy houses and yachts as you explore Balmoral beach.


North Head

This historical walk starts from the North Head Sanctuary, through the North Head Army Barracks and the heads into the bush. Say hello to echidnas and bandicoots who live in the area and enjoy the mix of bush and coastal views. This walk ends with the Fairfax Walk, which is perfect for finishing off your day at Manly Beach.

Bundeena to Otford Coastal Track (overnight)

This walk is more a of a day trip, but definitely one to work towards. You'll be rewarded with amazing views of the Tasman Sea over the 26km track around the Royal National Park. There's camping facilities at the North Era campground, and we highly recommend setting your alarm so you can see the spectacular sunrise over the water.
