What a wonderful area this is, drive or take the ferry then have a walk around the coast and even have a dip in some of the secluded bays.

Do take a walk on the spit bridge and enjoy the view ... Interesting from both side - only at the right timing the bridge will open

I suggest searching for Manly Wharf NSW. This is where you either start or finish depending on which direction you take. It is also where you get on or off the ferry from Circular Quay in the city.
