There are nearly 200kms of coastline to walk in Sydney – how lucky we are to have such a beautiful city to live in! We know that over the years, we have covered nearly all of this coastline but our Summer Walking series is to put it all together as one long walk over several weekends.
Our route starts at Barrenjoey and covers the northern beaches coastline to Manly before a jaunt around the harbour to Watsons Bay. From here we head south to Cronulla, cross the water and finish in the Royal National Park at Otford. We’ve split each section to around 16-18km legs and are planning on covering the entire walk over 10 weekends. Bring your towel and swimmers as there are plenty of spots for a dip en route. Hopefully we can finish with a coffee or a beer!
Please check our weekly emails for full details and remember to RSVP to leader before 6pm the night before. We expect these walks to be popular so make sure you register early. Numbers will be capped at 20. Fit partners welcome!
