Easy trail with a mix of walking on the beach, dirt track (a little muddy in some spots), rocks and platforms. Great spots to look over to Port Botany or out to the vast ocean. Take a picnic and eat on the rocks at Cape Banks.

Love this walk! Just perfect for a relaxing walk around the beautiful headland. I’ve walked around here a few times however recently discovered the old tunnels from the military. Quite impressive! Also great in winter if you can catch some whales migrating!

I walked this today and thoroughly enjoyed it. There was a diversity of scenery, some in the trees, others with dramatic vistas and huge skies. I took a fairly leisurely pace, and it took about 2 hours to walk the course listed on this map (plus another 25 min back to the bus stop near the start).

Nice short walk over bush, beach, rock platform. U will need to cross rock wet platform at times and I suggest in low tide go all the way to the bridge at cape banks headland. This will avoid going through golf course and getting stares from angry golfers.

First to Review

A good and easy walk to the cape. Loads of bird life and lots of small lizards on the track. No snakes thankfully! Some morning fog that killed off the view but worthwhile checking it out again.
