North Head Sanctuary - Manly
North Head Sanctuary is one of Sydney's hidden treasures. Right on Manly's backdoor step are beautiful walks, breathtaking views, bike-riding paths and fascinating historical sites.
Take a leisurely walk along the tracks through virtually untouched bushland. There's over 10 kilometres of easy walking tracks to choose from. Look out for native birds and animals as you take in the stunning views. The more exercise-minded can take a bike-ride from Manly up to North Head Sanctuary.
If history is your thing, then North Head Sanctuary plays host to North Fort, an important military fortification which was integral to Sydney's defence in World War II. Take one of the guided tours of North Head Sanctuary to find out more. Booking are recommended.
