North Head is a lovely unspoilt area to visit. Bus Service 135 runs hourly but drop off and pick-up points few and far between in walking tracks area which could be easily improved. Trail direction signs could stand a bit of improvement as we didn't...More

Hopped on the Sydney ferry from Circular Quay to Manly and transferred to the local bus service 135 to the North Head Walk. It would be good to drive because the bus service comes hourly. Easy stroll with crisp cool air.

My colleague dropped me at the top of the North Head and I hiked down from there. A nice collection of maintained trails at the top made for easy going. Venturing off on some of the smaller, primitive trails led to a spectacular overlook of...More

A must for a spectacular view over icinic Sydney harbour, however there are now fees for parking in the area now, as eems to be the case all over Manly. A day ticket may be used in other national Parks for the day.

Great view, easy parking and very good food. Menu caters for vegans and celiacs also. After lunch went for a walk around the Q Station which was very interesting.

A 40-minute ferry ride from Circular Quay will take
you to the famous northern beach of Manly. The beaches
here are perfect for learning to surf or spending the
day sun-tanning. The walk from Spit Bridge to Manly is
a great way to experience Sydney Harbour Bay and the
Australian bush land. Along the foreshore, there are
plenty of watering holes and wine bars with excellent
cuisine. There are plenty of kid-friendly restaurants
