So nice! We all love it. My kid are enjoying too.

Beautiful overlooking the ocean

A great walk along the cliff tops. You are very exposed though and the weather can change rapidly.. fantastic views!

This trail is just the most gorgeous place! I did it by myself (I was 15 at the time... possibly 14). At first I thought it was a quick walk but I was gone for hours! It doesn’t take that long to walk but I take millions of photos and I’m constantly stopping to look at trees, animals and the view! The view is breath taking! Strongly recommend!

My favourite walk in Sydney - changing views, bushland and beaches finished off by a burger in Manly. Prefer to do this Spit to Manly rather than the other way round. In summer take your bathers and have a swim at Fairlight ocean pool . Always enjoyable

diamond head is now my favorite beach in the world. This walk is just lovely

Beautiful, easy trail. Look out for kangaroos resting in paddocks by the trail

Beautiful walk, started in Bundeena and made our way to Otford so there was no pressure to catch the last ferry back.

The best section is at the beginning of the coast walk near Bundeena Wharf.

Beautiful track! Not too difficult and I recommend going off the path here and there; once to go towards the cliff edge where you’ll see nothing but ocean ahead of you, and another to get on top of Eaglehead Rock itself. Be careful as it gets a little windy!

Absolutely beautiful views from the cliff tops. We stopped for lunch at the Kilcunda pub, then set back on our return trip. This is definitely my favourite walk.

One of the Must-Do locations in Australia .. Easy access .. pity the surf was up the two days we were there as I would have loved to have tracked down onto the sand .. no photo's do this place justice.

Absolute must if visiting Sydney. The views across the cliffs and ocean are stunning. Nothing like this will make you feel more at home in Australia.

Fantastic landscape!!! I would do it again

Amazing views, great selection of terrain. Never got board on this walk, will do it again.

A beautiful walk along the cliffs with magnificent views of the coastal line. Took us 4hrs return from Kilcunda with having lunch (BYO) at punchbowl road before heading back.

Great views, beaches and bush.

Lovely coastal walk in winter, surf was rough but track was well looked after and a pleasure to walk. An easy fairly flat walk well suited to beginners however lots of people tend to visit. The toilets were not looked after very well.

Awesome hike, if you ❤️ stairs, superb view from lookout.
So many different paths to explore, we did this in the middle of winter, will bring swimmers for this route in Summer.
Picture perfect,
Wow the boardwalk was incredible.

Easy on the way down tough on the way back up but very enjoyable.

The Byron Bay lighthouse is a must-see if you're in the region, as is the walk down to Wategos Beach. While the lighthouse area will get crowded for sunset, mostly friendly backpackers, not many take the track down to the beach.

The trail is popular for locals training in the morning, often parking at Wategos and running up and back. But any time of the day is beautiful.

One small suggestion if hitting the lighthouse first is to park in either in the lower lighthouse carpark (on the way up, before the first boom gate - which they lock at night), or on the way down (when then one way road goes down, there's another and less full car park a little ways along). From either it only adds five to ten minutes walk and saves hassle with gates being locked.

Sunset at the end of the trail is beautiful, but likewise sunrise is special. Often photographers stake out this spot, as dolphins nearly always been be spotted in the region playing, and this is the most easterly point of the Australian mainland after all. Enjoy.

Marvellous view!

Walked at low tide, really enjoyable views and great beach walk, best with offshore winds

Beautiful little walk with some challenging stairs and incline to get the heart rate up. Views of the headland are worth the walk up. Very popular any time of the day, suitable for all fitness levels and ages

Super nice walk with beautiful scenery

Love it

Great walk but lots of traffic on the trail. Stairs towards Bondi should be carefully navigated if running.
