Sydney – Manly Beach & Harbour National Park

Wow…what an awesome place is Manly Beach!!


Heading up north I reached Manly Cove within a 30min Ferry ride. On the Ferry everyone was able to take these amazing postcard like pictures of the Opera and the Botanic Garden.

30min later arriving at Manly.


Manly Beach is gorgeous and apparently way bigger than Bondi Beach. Definitely a place to spend all of the afternoon, especially if the weather in good.

However, I visited Sydney National Park (located South of Manly Beach). This park that is literally on top of a small mountain was the most impressive place I have been so far in Australia! Combining great view spots, untouched nature, few tourists and hidden paths, AMAZING!


First location was Shelly Beach…just a small beach area not far away from Manly Beach.


Second location East side of the National Park with a great view over Manly Beach.

Third location South of National Park with a great view over Sydney downtown…Sydney seems to be just so tiny!

After the hiking & climbing duathlon I finally arrived back at the Ferry with the sun already going down…Now fast Ferry ride back to the Hostel…following the Great North Run online.
