Departing the city, we cross over the famous Sydney Harbour Bridge for our first stop at Milson’s Point for spectacular views of the Sydney Opera House, Sydney Harbour Bridge and Sydney Harbour.
We leave the hustle and bustle of the city behind as we travel up through the exclusive and leafy northern suburbs of Sydney. Heading into Ku-Ring-Gai Chase National Park we visit the idyllic Cottage Point for morning tea on the Hawkesbury River (own expense).
Take a walk on the America Bay track and enjoy a slice of the Australian bush. (A medium level of fitness is required for this walk) Discover the hidden and ancient Aboriginal rock engravings and learn about the local flora and native animals. Be rewarded at the end of the track with an impressive waterfall and breathtaking views over the Hawkesbury River.
Continue on to the spectacular West Head with views across to Pittwater and Barrenjoey Headland, with its lighthouse sitting alone and proud on top of the hill.
Meander down the coast line through the relaxed northern beach suburbs of Mona Vale, Nararbeen, Collaroy, Curl Curl, Freshwater and Queenscliff. Arrive at the popular Manly Beach, and walk along the famous Corso Boardwalk. Experience the two faces of Manly; the rugged ocean beach and the gentle harbour side.
You can choose to take the Manly Ferry back to Circular Quay, for a wonderful harbour cruise, or continue on our journey back to the city, where we stop at two of the very best lookouts in Sydney. See amazing panoramas of the Pacific Ocean and the rugged headland at Arabanoo Lookout. Bradley’s Head is renown for its unparalleled views of the City, the Sydney Harbour Bridge and the Sydney Opera House.

Todays inspirational image is a reminder of what will be here waiting for us when things return to normal, and social distancing becomes a thing of the past. This breathtaking pic was taken in Blackheath back in January.
Let us know what your favourite lookout is and we will try to share amazing shots taken from there ☺️
