Our top 5 Sydney Coastal Walks
Bondi to Coogee
Bondi to Coogee is the quintessential Sydney coastal walk and people from all around the world flock to the eastern suburbs every year to enjoy the six-kilometre trail.
Be prepared for astonishing views of the ocean, some of Australia’s best beaches and lots of green parks, local cafes and award-winning restaurants, too.
Dogs are allowed to come along, providing they are on a leash.
Rose Bay to Watsons Bay
Starting at the pretty and charming eastern suburb of Rose Bay, this walk to Watsons Bay is one of the most scenic and awe-inspiring in Sydney.
It boasts secluded beaches, such as Milk Beach, beautiful parks, including much-loved Nielsen Park and even: panoramic views of the harbour.
Leave your four legged friends at home for this walk, as dogs are not allowed on the path.
Royal National Park Coast Track
If you are an enthusiastic and experienced bushwalker, you will want to make time to venture out on this epic 26-kilometre adventure.
Starting at Bundeena and ending in Otford, the trail is best enjoyed over two days with a camp-over at North Era campground.
Whilst this is a bit more of a trek than a walk, this experience really highlights the beauty of our coastal wildernesses and offers the opportunity to marvel at Royal National Park’s sandstone escarpments, white sandy beaches, and enjoy scenic spots like Burning Palms Beach and Little Marley Beach.
Make the journey in May to October, and you may even get to do a bit of whale spotting, as well.
Don’t forget to bring drinking water, hat, snacks, sturdy shoes, suitable clothing, sunscreen, tent, sleeping bag and a raincoat. Dogs are not allowed.
Spit Bridge to Manly
Part of the infamous twenty-kilometre Manly Scenic Walkway, the Spit Bridge to Manly is almost a right of passage for any nature lover.
The ten-kilometre hiking trail starts at the north of Spit Bridge and includes native bushland sections, some of the quieter inner harbour beaches, gorgeous bays and panoramic coastal and ocean views.
There is also an opportunity to immerse yourself in Australian history and observe some Aboriginal rock engravings.
Whilst it's classes as moderately difficult, the trail is well maintained and only has one substantial hill to overcome, but given you'll experience rainforest like conditions one moment and ocean views the next, you'll work through with ease.
Leave the dogs at home though because if you plan it right, there's a stunning ferry trip to be had once you reach Manly.
Federation Cliff Walk
If you’re looking to recharge your batteries on a Sunday, before work the next day, why not make some time to walk the five-kilometre trail from Watson's Bay to Dover Heights?
Your reward will be unrivalled, sweeping panoramic views of the Tasman sea, along with scenic views of the areas famous sandstone cliffs.
Check out the timber walkway and viewing platforms, that allow you to stand on top of the cliffs and take in the incredible wild landscape, feel the wind in your hair and be free.
We hope you love these coastal walks as much as we do, and that they provide you with endless inspiration to get out and connect with the wild, enduring, rugged and beautiful natural luxury that we are so lucky to treasure here in our beautiful Australia.
