easyYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarGray StarGray Star(167)
Length: 7.0 mi • Est. 3 h 20 m
A stunning walk through coastal heath with a views of Sydney Harbour, the city skyline, South Head, and Manly Beach. Walk clockwise and take a dip at Little Manly Point on your return (calm, harbour side) or anti-clockwise and swim at Cabbage Tree Bay or Manly Beach (ocean side). Lots of stairs and uphill sections make this a good workout. You can catch a bus from the Manly Ferry terminal to the Barracks to shorten the walk. There's an interpretive display at the Fort's Visitor Centre and an excellent cafe with amazing views. If you have time consider adding a side trip to Q Station (old quarantine station) for more views, displays and tours.Show more
