View to Manly

View to Manly

We have a book of Harbour Walks and recently decided out to try out the classic, Spit Bridge to Manly walk with Toby.

Its about 11-12km with the extra detours and described as ‘simply one of the best walks in Sydney.’

We got the bus to Spit Bridge and went from there. The walk passes through some very nice beaches, coves, bush, Aboriginal sites and great views. There were loads of places it would be great to go back to when the waters a bit warmer to hang out on the beach and go for a swim.

We saw a dolphin very close up in the Harbour although it was too quick to get a picture of!

We did a detour to the lighthouse which also had great views back to the city.

Conveniently the walk ends in Manly, where you can get a giant ice cream and catch a ferry across the Harbour, past the Opera House and Bridge back to the city as the sun sets. Manly also has a penguin colony who go into the sea at night to feed. The wardens  cone off the section of the beach where they live and keep an eye out for over enthusiastic penguin lovers like myself who might try and adopt one for a pet! We saw one briefly plop into the sea before we had to catch the ferry – I’ll be going back for another look soon!
