Whether it’s a long trek getting in touch with nature or casual stroll to watch the whale migration, the Northern Beaches has a walk to suit everyone.

Our Northern Beaches Coast Walk - which is almost complete - stretches all 36kms from Manly to Palm Beach and showcases our spectacular coastline, offering views from some of Sydney’s most beautiful vantage points.

Check out our Hello Manly visitor centre website for walks in the iconic Manly area.

We also have some spectacular walks as part of the Bicentennial Walkway from North Narrabeen to Palm Beach.

The round trip around Narrabeen Lagoon is very popular with locals and visitors alike.
