Sydney's Great Coastal Walk


Barrenjoey - Royal National Park

Download PDF

Traverse Sydney's entire, spectacular coastline – from Barrenjoey in the north to Cronulla in the south – on this unique week-long adventure. You can walk in either direction and hop on and off the trail as you wish. Do day walks, short scenic sections or any of the many walks looping off the main trail. Break up the walking with public transport or hike the entire journey end-to-end. The walk features dramatic headlands, sandstone cliffs, golden beaches, secluded coves, lush lagoons and dense native bushland, fringed by Sydney's beachside suburbs. It's also a trail through Sydney's history, dotted with monuments to our Aboriginal and colonial past.  There are ferry links to Bouddi and Brisbane Water National Parks in the north and Royal National Park in the south.
