Bondi to Manly Walk

The new Bondi to Manly Walk follows the coastal and harbourside walking tracks between Australia’s two most famous surf beaches, Bondi Beach and Manly Beach. For its entire length, 80kms the Bondi to Manly Walk is on public land, with the most being easy and well-maintained bushwalking tracks. 

The Bondi to Manly Walk passes by many iconic sites and astounding harbour vantage points to view.   It passes right past one of our properties, Challis by Sydney Lodges in Potts Point. 

Sydney's landmarks you visit - Bondi Beach, The Gap at South Head, Rose Bay, the Opera House and Harbour Bridge, Luna Park, Cremorne Bay, Taronga Park Zoo, the Spit and Middle Harbour; from aboriginal coves to historic homes, all the way around the harbour foreshore to Manly Beach and North Head.

  • MANLY BEACH Manly, so named by Capt. Arthur Phillip in 1788 because of the manly nature of its indigenous people, is famous for its ocean beach and the ferry service from Circular Quay which started in 1852.
  • SYDNEY HARBOUR BRIDGE Since opening in 1932 the Harbour Bridge has shaped the City of Sydney. Its steel arch span and two pairs of granite pylons have become a symbol of Sydney and Australia.
  • SYDNEY OPERA HOUSE The Sydney Opera House, with its white shell-shaped sail roof, is one of the world’s most famous buildings.
  • BONDI BEACH Bondi is Australia’s most famous surf beach and is home to the world’s first lifesaving club. More than a million travellers visit Bondi every year for the quintessential Aussie experience of sun, surf and sand.

Sydney’s world-class Bondi to Manly Walk is a must for everyone; either a short stroll for a few kms or a long striding hike for 40-80km - you will be skiriting ‘the most beautiful harbour in the world’, an experience not to be missed.
