Sydney Harbour & Coast Walk

The ‘Sydney Walking Tracks’ 1,290 km network has been developed, proof-walked and mapped by an experienced group called The Walking Volunteers, with the strong support of the NSW Government and many councils over a period of 15 years.

The network includes the significant 315 km ‘Sydney Harbour & Coast Walk’ which was formally launched by Premier Barry O’Farrell on 23 September 2011. This track extends along Sydney’s coast from Broken Bay to Royal National Park, and around the foreshores of Sydney Harbour to Parramatta. The Walk links directly to the recently opened Great West Walk from Parramatta to the Nepean River at Penrith.

The 30-day Inaugural Sydney Harbour & Coast Walk was sent on its way by the then Minister for the Environment Rob Stokes on 16 August 2014 – see Pittwater Online. The Walk was captured in a series of inspiring and informative videos by John Illingsworth, a member of The Walking Volunteers.
