This brochure covers the route from Narrabeen Lakes to Manly Lagoon on Sydney's Northern Beaches. At its northern end it connects with the Barrenjoey to Narrabeen Lakes map brochure available on this site; while its southern end links with the Manly Lagoon to North Head and the Spit map brochure, also available on this site.
This is a splendid coastal walk featuring long, sweeping beaches, separated by several headlands with extensive views, including Long Reef Point with its aquatic reserve. The entrances of four lagoons with their wetland areas are also crossed in a walk which is rarely more than a few metres from the Pacific Ocean. Extensive linked inland walking routes are also identified, including circuits of Narrabeen Lakes and other Lagoons, and Manly Dam Reserve.
The walk forms part of the Sydney Harbour & Coastal Walking Network, one of the world's great urban forsehore walking networks, connecting Broken Bay in Sydney's north to Port Hacking in the south, and west as far as Parramatta.
Any part of the walk can be broken into distances and times of one's own choosing.
