A lovely walk to Spit Bridge. Beautiful and scenic. Wear good sneakers or hiking boots. Highly recommended if you enjoy walking and a little hiking

The bridge is nothing special - a big noisy bridge , but the Manly to Spit walk is fantastic and well worth doing even if it is a bit of a challenge at times as it is long and very up and down

No. There are sections that could be accessed, but in parts the track is reasonably rugged.

I suggest searching for Manly Wharf NSW. This is where you either start or finish depending on which direction you take. It is also where you get on or off the ferry from Circular Quay in the city.

Yes there are, our favourite is Reef Beach closest to the Manly side of the walk.
