Discover Sydney's Spectacular Coastal Walk: Taronga Zoo to Manly via Spit Bridge

Sydney offers more than just stunning beaches for surfing and snorkeling; it also boasts fantastic coastal walks perfect for those who prefer scenic views over aquatic adventures.

Among the myriad of breathtaking coastal walks, one standout trail is the renowned 18.9km trek from Taronga Zoo to Manly via Spit Bridge.

Embarking on this journey, you have the option to kickstart your adventure from either Taronga Zoo or Manly Wharf, tailoring the distance to your fitness level. Along the way, the allure of the coastline beckons, offering tempting opportunities to take a dip in the inviting waters of the beaches you encounter or pause for a leisurely coffee break at charming cafes and restaurants dotted along the route. This proximity to residential areas and popular public beaches adds a touch of luxury seldom found in bush hikes.

As you traverse the trail, you'll be treated to sweeping vistas of the expansive sky stretching above the Pacific Ocean, juxtaposed with verdant forest paths adorned with towering, emerald trees. It's truly remarkable how this walk seamlessly integrates with the urban fabric of the city while immersing you in a pristine natural environment.

For nature enthusiasts, this walking route is an absolute must-try.
