The coastal walk between Bondi and Watsons Bay will give you excellent views of the coast and a touch of history.
It’s one of the most spectacular walking trails and the landscape is breathtaking.
The walk is about 7 km in length, and I think a bit tougher than the better known Bondi-Coogee track – though the reward with this track is the scenery is generally wilder and more spectacular and you don’t have to do battle with hordes of fellow tourists, as well as the joggers and dog walkers.
Bring plenty of water, sunscreen and a hat – and a decent walking shoe is probably a good idea too. A mobile phone with a map app is another essential – the track is not always well signposted.
This coastal walk meanders through beautiful parklands and open spaces and includes an exciting timber walkway with viewing platforms that bring you on top of the cliffs.
HOW TO REACH THE WATSON BAY WALK:
A ferry ride from Circular Quay takes you to Watson’s Bay wharf after a couple of drop-offs on the way. This is not too strenuous a walk however there are lots to see on this walk: small beaches, great viewpoints and a bit of military history. Possible to short cut and curtail the tour around the peninsula at any time.
