Sydney, New South Wales, Australia
easyYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarGray Star(236)
Length: 8.9 mi • Est. 4 h 3 m
A must do if you are in Sydney. The trail can certainly be crowded, but this is easily overcome by the jaw dropping vistas at every turn. There is great bus service to both Bondi and Coogee. Apply plenty of sunscreen and wear a bathing suit so you can cool off in the many accessible beaches. There are many water sources and eating options along the way. Give yourself 5 - 7 hours (one way) if you are snapping photos, grabbing food and taking a dip. This route may be frustrating for runners given the high amount of people on the trail.Show more

This is an incredible trek just an hour drive from Sydney. Some determined folks choose to do it in one long day, while others prefer to backpack it overnight. The route offers great views, camping spots, and the chance to see some wildlife. Bring plenty of water, especially in the summer. Although the trail can be done in either direction, this route (North to South) is the most common.Show more

This is an incredible trek within an hour drive from Sydney. Most hikers choose to go north to south, but some hikers may be interested in this alternate south to north trek. This route is either a long one-day trek, or an overnight backpacking trip. A bushcamping permit is required if you're camping. There are steep climb coming back out but the views are unbeatable! This is an incredible, but demanding walk. A number of wallabies can be sighted along the trail, and a handful of creeks are along the trail for those with water filters. Rewarding hike, although it's entirety is not for the unmotivated.Show more

This route can be done in either direction, but most people go from Spit Bridge to Manly. The trail can get a bit dusty in summer, and doesn’t offer much shade so wear plenty of sunscreen! Feeling energetic? You can continue through Little Manly to Collins Beach and then up to North Head.

Start at the beautiful Valley of the Waters walking downhill to Sylvia Falls and Empress Falls, and then continue southeast to the equally incredible Wentworth Falls.
