Tripadvisors tilnærming til anmeldelser
Hver Tripadvisor-anmeldelse går gjennom et automatisert sporingssystem før den legges ut. Dette systemet samler inn informasjon som svarer på følgende spørsmål: Hvordan, hva, hvor og når. Hvis systemet oppdager noe som muligens strider imot retningslinjene våre for fellesskapet, blir anmeldelsen ikke publisert.
Når systemet oppdager et problem, kan en anmeldelse automatisk avvises, sendes til anmelderen for bekreftelse eller gjennomgås manuelt av teamet vårt av innholdsspesialister. Disse spesialistene jobber døgnet rundt for å opprettholde kvaliteten av anmeldelsene på nettstedet vårt.
Teamet vårt sjekker hver anmeldelse som er lagt ut på nettstedet og bestrides av fellesskapet vårt for ikke å møte retningslinjene våre for fellesskapet.

A short loop walk with two watching points. Great views of the city, ocean and nearby islands. Apparently you can spot a whale too - haven't seen any, but this place is well worth a trip anyway. There is a bus coming to the top of the hill if you don't fancy the steep climb.

Picturesque with views of Sydney as well as the ocean. Whale watching is really fun here and you can see the splashes every now and then when it’s the whale migration season. Definitely worth the detour!

As the first part of what was to become my Bondi to Manly walk, we took the ferry from Sydney to Manly Wharf and walked up the hill to North Head Sanctuary and Sydney Harbour National Park where there are a number of walks that explore the setting of the old military buildings though you don't appear to be able to enter them. The Barracks Precinct is the most central point and has a gate and buildings around a parade ground. Further on there is the Third Quarantine Cemetery, gun emplacements and military bunkers (mostly closed) that you can view from the walk.

You can take a round trip from the parade ground starting off with the walking track near the scenic drive with lookouts across Sydney Harbour and coming back via Hanging Swamp and the path is well signposted and properly graded with some areas of boardwalk. Fairfax lookout was closed when we visited. We ate a snack at Bella Vista Manly at North Fort. Bandicoot Heaven, on North Fort Rd, contained lots of environmental and wildlife information and very helpful volunteers. We came back to Manly Beach via Shelly Beach, which was a rougher track, where the walk has some pretty cliff and ocean views.

We visited the North Head Sanctuary during our trip to Manly. We walked around to Shelly Beach from the main beach and then walked up the track at the back of the beach. As shown on the map, the track loops around the headland to the north of the beach and you can then climb up t he hill behind into the National Park. The views from the headland extend all the way up to Palm Beach. We also saw lots of wildlife on our way up the hi, including water dragons, bush turkeys, a grass snake, other lizards and a variety of birds. Later that evening we drove out to North Head on the road. The loop at the end is closed until January as they are apparently still working to fix damage from t he fire. The view from the Carpark though is stunning and extends all the way back to town and down the south coast. After dark we saw a number of endangered bandicoots on the road.

What a fabulous adventure this is! We took the path from Shelly Beach to the lake at the top. We were surprised that the path was rather steep and was longer than expected so this is not suitable for the frail! However, the path is well-kept and the flora spectacular. Plant name tags make the route also informative. The views of cliffs and the seascapes are peeping through the bushes is spectacular! An apparently ancient wall which one passes adds to the sense of adventure, and the glorious wild peach at the small lake is magical. We were there at sunset and we were a little anxious about getting back before dark so most of our group walked the 200m to the road close by while someone went for the car. The access by road is more suitable if you are not fit but it is a pity that you will miss the rocky path. Enjoy!

Take your time and enjoy a walk from Manly, via Shelly Beach to North Head. Viewing the wildflowers and following good tracks on a clear day is worth the effort.

North Head is an excellent day-trip if you have the time to explore beyond the main tourist sights in Sydney. It’s not on many tourists’ radar but is a stunning spot.
The sanctuary sits above Manly Beach. It’s free to enter and has several bushland walking trails, whale-watching sites, wildlife, rare native flora, panoramic views of the harbour, military relics and the old historic quarantine centre.
Start at the Visitor Centre where you can grab free guides and they can advise and direct you to the various walks.
The best views are definitely from the Fairfax Trail. Right now (Aug-Oct), this is also a good spot to whale-watch and they can be frequently see making their way back to the Antarctic.
It’s an easy circular walking path that loops around past the harbour and follows the cliff edges. It connects 3 lookout points. First you see the dramatic sheer cliff faces and expansive views over the Pacific Ocean. Then, further around, you look across to the eastern suburbs and straight up through the entrance to the harbour to the city skyline.
Along the way, you will notice some curious concrete hut-like structures. One or two are accessible from the path and you can go inside. These are gun emplacements and military bunkers dating from 1920s.
The path is flat and level, with fenced railings on the cliff side. It is mostly paved and is a gentle walk which is easy even for small children with little legs. Allow about 30 minutes.
There are several other walks and if you are up for it, you can walk right down through the bush to end up at Manly Beach but this is a much longer walk (about 8km).

GETTING THERE: From the city, the Manly ferry is the best way to start. Apart from anything else, it is a wonderful trip. From the Manly wharf, catch the 135 bus (stand C) which will take you right into the North Head sanctuary, stopping by the visitor centre and Bella Vista cafe. An important thing to know is that Bus 135 is pre-pay only so you will need an Opal card.
If driving, there is a very cheap parking fee. Just a flat $5 for the day.

North Head offers some great walks through bushland, all well graded and signposted, with terrific views across the harbour to the southern suburbs and the city and out through the Heads to sea.

Manly to North Head Walk was well worth while last weekend.
COVID-19 has prevented people from getting out much, but now that restrictions have eased it was wonderful to get out and enjoy the "out of doors".

Many opportunities to see the ocean and possibility of seeing whales as they travel north to warmer waters.

Just a beautiful day and views.
Well worth the exercise.
Many historical points of interest and beautiful flowers and native bushes to see.

We walked through the middle of Manly then up to North Head, around Fairfax lookout and back down to Manly.
Amazing walk topped off with a visit from a young Echidna.
Well worth a 9km walk.
