Manly to Spit Coastal Walk

I spent the morning wandering around Sydney's harbour, taking in the sights of the famous Sydney Opera House, the Harbour Bridge, Mrs. Macquarie's Chair and the Royal Botanical Garden and decided to spend the rest of my day taking on the bigger steps of the area.

Across the harbour bridge in North Sydney lies the peaceful seaside escape of Manly. From here, a renowned coastal walk treks back to Spit.

The Manly Fast Ferry leaves from the Rocks right outside Circular Quay train station. At the time of writing, a one-way ticket was $9.70 and the ferry takes approximately eighteen minutes.

Once you get off the ferry, walk straight up Wentworth Street to check out the beautiful Manly Beach. After, return to the ferry terminal and start the 10km Manly to Spit Coastal Walk.

    Gorgeous! It looks like you’re getting your exercise.

    No shark sightings, I hope.

      The beauty makes it easy to walk hours a day here, and no shark sightings yet (sadly no kangaroos yet, either!). xx
