With its network of lush green spaces, leafy public parks and beautiful gardens, Sydney’s natural environments are the ideal setting to explore the great outdoors. Sydney Harbour’s islands are among some of Sydney's most popular natural attractions.
Sydney is also surrounded by national parks, many within easy reach of the city. Sydney’s national parks offer a diverse range of landscapes from rainforests to rugged bush and even gorgeous bays and beaches. Don’t miss Ku-ring-gai National Park in Sydney’s north, great for bushwalks, and the Royal National Park, one of Australia’s oldest national parks.
Sydney is a city made for walks and hikes in the great outdoors. From coastal walks to urban walking trails, foreshore strolls to great bushwalks, you're sure to find a walk to suit you. One of the most popular walks is the Bondi to Coogee coastal walk, which is a leisurely walk made up of 6 km of picturesque coastal paths along the headlands of Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs beaches.
