Harbour Bridge to South Head and Clovelly

This brochure covers walking routes from Sydney Harbour Bridge via South Head and on to Clovelly. At the Harbour Bridge it connects with the Harbour Circle Walk and Harbour Bridge to Manly via Spit map brochures; while at its southern end it connects with the Clovelly to Cronulla map brochure also available on this site.

The main route (shown in red) covers the southern shores of Sydney Harbour through scenic waterside parkland and urban landscapes resonating with history and interesting architecture. At charming Watsons Bay it meets the dramatic entrance to Sydney Harbour. It then swings south past the notorious Gap and 80m ocean cliffs before dropping down to iconic Bondi Beach and the succession of eastern beaches to Clovelly. Sites of interest along the way include Macquarie Lighthouse, two historic cemeteries, waterfront parkland, interesting architecture and continuously wonderful scenery.

As well as the 30km main route, the map brochure includes 14 Loop and 10 Connecting Walks totalling 44km, together with a 7km section of the Federation Track. The overall result is a network of walks of varying length exploring the infinite variety and history of Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs and beaches. Full notes are available on the website for each walk.

The walk forms part of the Sydney Harbour & Coastal Walking Network, one of the world’s great urban foreshore 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.
