We love getting out in the fresh air and basking in the autumn sun with one of the city’s many coastal walks. Whether by the beach or by the bay, Sydney has plenty of options for some fun in the sun. For more great places to walk in Sydney visit wheretraveler.com
Did you know you can walk along the harbour and see all of the city’s top attractions along the way? Start at the Art Gallery of New South Wales and head to Mrs Macquaries Point for some awe-inspiring photos. Then it’s off through the Royal Botanic Garden Sydney, stop by the Sydney Opera House, head around Circular Quay, walk under the Sydney Harbour Bridge and finish at Barangaroo.
Bondi to Bronte
If you are after an iconic Sydney beach walk, then this is it. The approximately 3-kilometre coastal walk between famous Bondi Beach and equally beautiful Bronte Beach is often at the top of every tourist’s to-do list, and it’s easy to see why, with picture perfect views all the way.
The Bay Run
This walking path in Sydney’s inner-west is very popular with joggers, cyclists, social walkers and families. Spanning approximately 7 kilometres it loops around Haberfield, Leichhardt Park, over Iron Cove Bridge and around Henley Marine Drive to Rodd Point. You’ll get bay views all the way, and it’s a super pleasant way to start your day.
Manly to Spit
Locals love the wondrous Manly to Spit walk. The 10-kilometre trail is no easy feat, and will take 3-4 hours, but you can just do a smaller section if you choose. Stunning beaches and bays line the walk, and you might even be lucky enough to spot a whale or two during migration season (May–november).
