It’s Time to Make the Most of our Coast!
Sydney’s coastline is one of the most beautiful and environmentally diverse in the world, featuring picture-postcard beaches, soaring cliffs and mighty headlands, secret inlets and secluded coves. The city is now promoting this wealth of coastal beauty as Sydney’s Great Coastal Walk and the best guide to the best sections of the Walk, including the full Palm Beach to La Perouseroute, is the new edition of Australia’s bestselling walking guide, Sydney’s Best Harbour and Coastal Walks.
Katrina O’Brien, author of the guide, says “For many Sydney-siders living close to the beach, a coastal walk is part of their daily life. But few people realise that it is possible to walk most of the coastline from Barrenjoey Head to the Royal National Park”. For those interested in tackling the heart of the walk – from Palm Beach to La Perouse, Katrina suggests the following week’s itinerary:
Day 1: Bus to Palm beach, climb Barrenjoey Head before walking to an Avalon B&B
Day 2: Walk from Avalon to Collaroy staying along Narrabeen Beach
Day 3: Walk from Collaroy to Manly
Day 4: Do the North Head walk in the morning, then catch the ferry to Circular Quay, connecting with the ferry to Watsons Bay before spending the night there
Day 5: Do the South Head walk before heading off along the cliffs to Bondi Beach
Day 6: Walk from Bondi to Maroubra
Day 7: Follow the final part of the route from Maroubra to La Perouse in the morning, and catch the bus back to the city in the afternoon.
