Am just looking for opinions, ideas and suggestions on the following walks.

Currently thinking of (on different days of course) walking from the northern end of the Harbour Bridge across to The Rocks area; Circular Quay to Woolloomooloo (including Mrs. Macquaries Chair); Bondi to Coogee Beach; and around Watson's Bay.

Also do you have any other walks that I should consider doing (am also visiting the Manly area)?

Thank you :)

Manly to Spit Bridge is one of the iconic walks. About 9km. Take the bus from Manly and get off at the Spit Bridge then walk back. Most bus drivers will tell you where the walk starts from the bus stop.

One of my personal favorites is Cremorne Point to Chowder Bay. Some really stunning views. You can take the ferry from Circular Quay to Cremorne Point and from Chowder Bay there is a bus back to the CBD.

Have a look at www.walkingcoastalsydney.com.au for other ideas.

Happy walks.

You could do your proposed Harbour Bridge/Rocks and Circular Quau/Woolloomooloo walks in the one day - it's not a great distance and would probably take you only a couple of hours.

evamelb's suggestion of the Spit-Manly walk is a good one. Though, this walk has more bushwalking elements to it than the other walks you've listed, so you'll need to take water, some comfortable shoes etc.

The City of Sydney website has some downloadable guides (or they post them out as they kindly did for me) for some fascinating self guided historical walks around the Sydney area. Each one has a theme to follow.
