The Manly Scenic Walkway is a series of short tracks, mostly less than 1-2km, including the Fairlight, Dobroyd and North Harbour walks. Lovely little hidden bays and coves all the way along and for large parts you would never believe that you were in a city of 4 million people. Each track covers a themed section of the harbour, so covering all of them in one walk is a great way to experience the diversity of Sydney Harbour’s bays, beaches and bushland. The walk is well-signed and offers a number of detours for those looking to get off the “beaten track”, such as the views of the harbour from the old Grotto Point Lighthouse. There are a real variety of things to see and do along the way, from swimming to wildlife and whale watching, as well as learning about Sydney’s rich colonial history. For example, Forty Baskets Beach was so-named because of the fish caught there in the 1880s to feed Sudanese soldiers detained at the Quarantine Station, positioned across the harbour at North Head.
