80km Bondi-Manly walk that will snake around Sydney’s picturesque foreshore on existing public land and has already been declared the best walk in the world.

 

The walk will take in the Sydney Opera House, the Harbour Bridge and Mrs Macquarie’s Chair, as well the dramatic views of North Head, Taronga Zoo and Clifton Gardens.

Walkers can pass Camp Cove, where Captain Arthur Phillip first landed in 1788; Nutcote, the home of artist May Gibbs; stunning Vaucluse House and Elizabeth Bay House; and Aboriginal engravings at Grotto Point.

The 80km trek could be the best urban walk in the world, not only because the locations are beautiful and historically important, but they’re right near the city. The walk sits on what is widely accepted to be the greatest natural harbour in the world and it takes in four of the six most iconic places in the nation.
