Tips
Getting There

This coastal walk can be done in either direction, but most people go from Spit to Manly. The trail can get a bit dusty in summer, and doesn’t offer much shade so wear plenty of sunscreen! Connecting pedestrian paths and walking tracks this 10km route highlights some of Sydney harbour’s best bits: Clontarf reserve, castle rock beach, grotto point lighthouse, dobroyd head, reef beach, forty baskets beach, and postcard harbour views all the way to Manly Wharf. Feeling energetic? You can continue through Little Manly to Collins Beach and then up to North Head. If you’re taking public transportation, you can bus to Spit Bridge and then ferry or bus back from Manly.

Dogs are prohibited along the official Spit to Manly track passing through Dobroyd Head.

This can be commenced from either side. For a more difficult walk, start at Manly rather than Spit Bridge. To get to Manly from Sydney, catch the ferry across Sydney Harbour to Manly Wharf.

HikingGreat!

A brilliant Sydney Autumn day for the walk, and it didn’t disappoint. The trail is very heavily trafficked today, minding it was a public holiday. Lots of spots to wander down to the foreshore along the way so take your swimmers if you like to have a dip. Watch for tide information as forty buckets beach can be impassable if high tide. There is a well marked alternative route for that section if it is needed. I found this a relatively easy walk. Keep in mind it’s length if it’s a warm day, take plenty of water and appropriate clothing. There are lots and lots of steps along the trail (which I loved), keep in mind if you want a more accessible friendly walk.

Super. Make sure you wear decent footwear if it’s wet. Couple of tricky sections up front, but you can smash through this in under two hours.

One of Sydney’s best walks, good as part of the Manly-Bondi, well marked path, good mix of paths and bush, very popular, only a little climbing around the Dobroyd Head, a must do

A lot of stairs but it is all worth it. Beautiful Views. Came across with a few water dragons which is kind of cool. Highly recommended.
