Get your walking shoes on and get ready to drink in some of Sydney’s most spectacular views.
The city is now home to one of the world’s most beautiful public walking tracks with the opening today of the Bondi to Manly walk.
The trail, an epic 80km path located almost entirely on existing public land, is already drawing comparisons to international walking landmarks such as Italy’s Cinque Terre and Spain’s Camino de Santiago.
The public will be able to set out from Bondi Beach and follow a series of Aboriginal “whale symbol” markers installed along the trail.
Billed as a multi-day walk, determined strollers can complete the scenic course in just over 15 hours. It includes four famous Australian landmarks, the Sydney Harbour Bridge, Opera House, Bondi Beach and Manly Beach.
Around 60km of the trail is on public land, while the rest is on footpaths near Point Piper, Darling Point and Potts Point.
The track also passes Taronga Zoo, Bradleys Head, Clifton Gardens, Middle Head and Aboriginal rock carvings at Clontarf.
“No other urban walk can offer the significant historic, scenic and cultural wonders of this track,” Sydney Lord Mayor Clover Moore said.
