What you'll do

The day involves a number of short walks. The amount of walking is negotiable and can be adjusted to suit you. We start at Georges Heights and take in the views of Sydney Harbour heads (entrance) and the military's historic plans to defend Sydney. At the popular and pleasant Balmoral Beach we walk along the Boulevarde and have a look at Rocky Point Island. At this point it is time for a coffee. We then move onto the Sydney Harbour National Park for a walk that allows us to take in some excellent harbour vistas and appreciate the Australian bush. Next stop is Manly where we will walk from Manly Beach to Shelley Beach via the Cabbage Bay Acquatic Reserve. We then progress past Freshwater Beach to Curl Curl and take in the coastal trail whilst enjoying the ocean vistas. Time to leave the beaches and head to West Head in the National Park. Here we will have a look at some indigenous engravings and enjoy the panoramic view of Lion Island and the isthmus. Its time to drive to Palm Beach where we will hike to the lighthouse and further appreciate the magnificence of this coastal area. On the way home we will stop at Avoca and Bilgola beaches. Our return trip provides us with the option of driving to Manly and catching a ferry back to the city or driving back home via the harbour bridge. The tour is for your group only (private) and is flexible.

Greg

Hi, I will be your Sydney Nimble Tour guide on the northern beaches day out. I have travelled extensively and have a good feel for what does and doesn't work on a tour. Having lived in Sydney for many years provides a solid background for showing visitors around. I have been to every location visited by Sydney Nimble Tours, researched and written all of the blogs (over 30), taken website photographs and charted out the tours. A national park is a great place to have an office! My hobbies include bushwalking, surfing and photography. The most rewarding part of taking a small group is getting to know the people you are with and for me these interactions are the highlight of the day. Join me for a day of beaches, national parks and great harbour scenery.

What's included

Food
nutritious lunch of fresh bread rolls with a choice of fillings.
Drinks
cold water
