Starting at
Circular Quay

Manly Wharf

Get lost in the beauty of Manly, one of Sydney’s sandier suburbs on Fit City Tour’s Manly Hiking Tour. With your very own Sydney city tour guide leading the pack, this hiking tour will explore iconic coastal destinations such as Collin’s Beach and North Head.

Operating daily at 9:30am, this three and a half hour hiking excursion begins at Wharf 2 at Circular Quay, the gateway to Sydney Harbour. We’ll begin our tour on the Manly Ferry, soaking in the sea air for a fresh start to our morning. Together, we’ll explore The Croso before watching surfers ride waves of Manly Beach and taking in the sights that stretch as far as the eye can see.

Next, our journey on foot takes us to Shelly Beach where we’ll watch scuba divers, snorkelers and an abundance of marine life swim in the clear, shallow water. Here, we’ll trek around the bush track which offers stunning views of North Head and northern beaches. The next stop on our hiking tour is North Head, another beautiful headland, where your Sydney tour guide will lead you on a hike offering sprawling views of the harbour.

From there, we’ll trek onwards to Collins Beach, a romantic hidden spot known for its calm, tranquil waters. After leaving our footprints in the sand there we’ll traverse on to pristine Little Manly Beach which is just a beautiful spot to hang out, before heading back towards Manly Wharf where you'll be able to explore Manly on your own before we catch the ferry back to Circular Quay. Or you can stay around a bit longer in Manly if you prefer...

We operate tours for a minimum of 1 guest. Prices are per person with GST included.
