Top Sydney walks

Immerse yourself in the beauty of Sydney’s national parks. Be treated to sweeping city and coastal views in Sydney Harbour National Park. Take the kids birdwatching along a lagoon boardwalk. Or, walk off a picnic lunch, and maybe spot a whale in winter, at Malabar Headland or Henry Head, before a beach swim. Discover the Aboriginal engravings and waterfalls of America Bay, or convict heritage along World Heritage-listed Old Great North Road. From family friendly short walks to scenic day walks and world-class multi-day hikes, the Greater Sydney area offers something for everyone.
