Barrenjoey Headland in Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park is the northern-most point of Sydney. You've seen plenty of spectacular views from Sydney's Northern Beaches on the first 2 legs of this series. But the views from Barrenjoey headland are well worth the journey.

We'll start where we left off at Mona Vale. We'll go via Bungan Beach, Newport Beach and Bilgola. Then it's on to Avalon and Whale Beach.

Once we arrive at Palm Beach, there's only the climb up Barrenjoey Headland left to go. As a reward for your effort, enjoy the stunning views over the national park, Broken Bay and back towards Manly, where the series started. Make sure you snap some photos.

Remember to bring water, snacks, lunch, sunscreen and wear a hat and appropriate clothing for the weather. You'll also need your Opal card for return travel on public transport.
