Bondi to Bronte. Scam­per along the scenic path be­hind Ice­bergs (see Rest/smart) around past Mcken­zie’s Beach and Ta­ma­rama Beach, end­ing with a nib­ble at Bronte Beach favourite The Bo­gey Hole Cafe / 473 Bronte Rd / 9389 8829 / bo­gey­hole­cafe.com.

Start or end at Coogee Beach.

Manly. This 3-hr walk is fab­u­lous. Pack a pic­nic (see V. Use­ful) as there are many charm­ing har­bour-side spots to dally in. Get a taxi over Spit Bridge and stop straight away in the layby on the left. Look back to the bridge and on the right is a sign read­ing ‘Manly via Clon­tarf Re­serve’. Go down the steps and un­der the bridge, then sim­ply fol­low the signs. When you get to Manly, skip around to the ferry wharf and Papi Chulo (see Rest/re­laxed) or take an icy bev at Hu­gos Manly / 8116 8555 / hu­gos.com.au. Then you can wan­der on to the de­light­ful Shelly Beach with cute caff The Boathouse (see Brekkie) be­fore fer­ry­ing 30-mins back to town.

South Head. Drive, or boat it from Cir­cu­lar Quay to Wat­sons Bay for this leisurely walk around the for­mer fish­ing vil­lage of Camp Cove. Head down to Camp Cove Beach where you’ll see some steps on the right, up to the South Head Re­serve. The 30 min head­land stroll takes you around in a loop high above the har­bour en­trance, past the light­house and in­fa­mous Lady Jane nudey beach. Fin­ish with a cold ale at the Wat­sons Bay Beach Club / 1 Mil­i­tary Rd / 9337 5444 / b’fast to late daily / wat­sons­bay­ho­tel.com.au.
