Finding the Best Walks in Sydney

Sydney is the perfect city to explore on foot. We spend time every weekend walking around the city looking for the very best walks in Sydney to share here.

When we write up the walks we include lots of photos and maps to make them easy to follow. We try to include tidbits of local information to help you uncover some of the cities secrets.

Everything from coastal beach walks like the famous Bondi to Coogee walk to less well-known gems like walks along the harbour foreshore and the south beaches right down to La Perouse and Cronulla.

Exploring Sydney on foot is my favourite way to see the city so dig in and find a walk that suits you.
