144-Bondi to Manly Walk

Show notes

The Bondi to Manly Walk was officially opened in December 2019, formalising a pre-existing route into a standalone walk. It showcases Sydney Harbour and includes water views, bushland, residential cut-throughs, historic and Aboriginal heritage, and beach sections. This is truly one of the worlds great urban walks, all within the city confines.

How you choose to walk this trail is up to you and it is very much a ‘choose your own adventure’; you can take as long as you like.  This episode discusses my three day trip, day by day, and to get the best from this podcast follow along with the written review here.
