An Epic Unfolding

Cliffs that drop away to the ocean, secluded coves and beaches, gentle bush tracks, unique flora and fauna, cultural sites and historic landmarks. All within walking distance of Sydney’s dramatic skyline. The Bondi to Manly Walk will immerse you in the most breathtaking natural harbour city in the world.

For thousands of years, Aboriginal people have fished these waters, foraged along the foreshore, hunted in the hinterland, and harvested from the bush. At the heart of this relationship is a deep connection to the land.

Today, over 5 million of us live, work and play in Sydney. That connection is ever present. And with over 30 million visitors arriving every year, we think our history, natural beauty and countless attractions should be celebrated and enjoyed by people from all walks of life.

This is what makes the Bondi to Manly Walk so special.

Here, you’ll experience the best of both worlds. One twist in the trail will take you from the energy of Sydney’s cosmopolitan heart, to the otherworldly serenity of nature. And whether you choose to walk a section on the weekend, or the entire 80 kilometres of coastal and harbour-side tracks and paths, somewhere between Australia’s two most famous surf beaches, you’ll write a new chapter, and find your own connection to this epic place.

This truly is the world’s best harbour walk. A must do for locals, tourists and serious walkers alike.

We can’t wait to help you experience it.
