Hiking in Sydney
- Travel Tips
- Fodor's Choice
Fine walking trails can be found in the national parks in and around Sydney, especially in Royal National Park and Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park (32 km [20 mi] south and 25 km [15 mi] north of the city center, respectively) and Sydney Harbour National Park, which hugs the harbor shores. The Bondi-to-Bronte Coast Walk is a lovely 3½-km (2-mi) cliff walk, popular with just about everyone in the eastern suburbs. Signage explains the flora and Aboriginal history, and the area is the venue for the hugely popular Sculpture by the Sea outdoor art display (held every October and November). The Federation Cliff Walk from Dover Heights (north of Bondi Beach) to Vaucluse, and on to Watsons Bay, winds past some of Sydney's most exclusive suburbs. At Diamond Bay you can soak in great views of the 20-million-year-old sandstone cliffs from the steps and boardwalks.
