The walk was not arduous, and the scenic view was so peaceful. The water in Manly was so clear, my husband loved being able to see fish in the ocean.

This is the most beautiful walk if you love nature and taking non-stop photographs. The walk can be extended to take you even further into Middle Harbour. A must for Nature lovers and Hikers!!!

I don't know who these people are who say this is an easy walk. We can easily walk 10kms in 90mins but this took us 3 hours. It is flat for the first 2km and the last 2km and then the middle 6 is constant...More

A very rewarding 10km walk which offers great views from the northern side of the spit. Parts are quite flat however it is challenging on some of the uphill sections. A nice thing to do on a sunny winters day - probably not so good...More

I live in the area and am biased but the scenery is stunning and the walk excellent. the ground can be uneven at times but still easy. Takes about 3-4 hours. If you enjoy walking then this is a must.

A 40-minute ferry ride from Circular Quay will take
you to the famous northern beach of Manly. The beaches
here are perfect for learning to surf or spending the
day sun-tanning. The walk from Spit Bridge to Manly is
a great way to experience Sydney Harbour Bay and the
Australian bush land. Along the foreshore, there are
plenty of watering holes and wine bars with excellent
cuisine. There are plenty of kid-friendly restaurants
