Good scenic views, various parts of the track is in bushland and gives good shade. Take a picnic lunch or eat at balmoral. To extend the walk go there and back

We took the ferry to Taronga Zoo then walked to Balmoral Beach. There are several directions to go but the walk is well sign-posted. We had lunch in Balmoral and took a bus back to Wynyard. Logistics were easy. Would definitely recommend for visitors to Sydney. We didn't walk down to the beach but there were a few swimming spots... More

This view is spectacular and a must for tourists. If you... More

Take the 244 bus which you catch at Wynard in the city (stand A i think) to the end of the line. When you get off walk down towards the... More

I pride myself on knowing most things about Sydney. This is the first time that I had been on this walk, only one word -Brilliant. Sydney harbour was at its sparkling best. The views from this walk are totally stunning. It's the sort of walk that lifts the soul.

Fantastic walk - trail starts immediately to the right when you get off ferry at Taronga Wharf. Taylors Bay and Chowder Bay are spectacular- take swimming gear at there is a netted cove at Clifton Gardens / Chowder Bay. Short cut back over the headland to Taronga.
