(Download brochures, with maps and background notes).
This brochure covers walking routes from Sydney Harbour Bridge via the Spit Bridge and on to Manly. At its southern end it connects with the Harbour Circle and Harbour to South Head and Clovelly map brochures also available on this site. Its northerly section links and partly duplicates the Manly Lagoon to North Head and the Spit map brochure.
The southern part of the map offers two routes, the shorter Middle Harbour (West) route through enjoyable streetscapes and parks and Middle Harbour views; while the longer Harbour (East) route follows the main Harbour foreshore accessing some of its most scenic and historic features including beaches (some very popular, others quiet and natural), National Park and Harbour Trust land, Taronga Zoo, former military sites and much more. The northern part of the map features the popular Spit Bridge to Manly Walk through beautiful natural and developed beaches and parklands with dramatic views of the Harbour and Sydney Heads.
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.
