Welcome to Best Sydney Walks

Best Sydney Walks is a growing online guide to the best walks, hikes, tracks, trails and other exciting outdoor activities in and around Sydney Australia, one of the most beautiful cities in the world.

Hiking in Sydney is the best way to fully enjoy and appreciate everything this beautiful city has to offer. Sydney is very diverse, you can walk the beaches, the mountains and the bush, and of course the magnificent harbour.

As a local I am still discovering great new ways to explore this city on foot every day! And with Sydney’s great climate, there are lots of other exciting and adventurous activities you can do outdoors.

At Best Sydney Walks we aim to feature walks for everyone. All our walks include a description of the highlights and the grading, so you can pick a walk suitable for your company and your mood, whether it be a casual jog or a day out with the kids.

All walks covered on our website offer amazing scenery so make sure you bring your camera with you when you go out and about to try one of these amazing walking trails. The walks are categorised into bay walks, bush walks, coastal walks, island walks and urban walks.

We have also recently started documenting our favourite beaches and popular sights in Sydney and New South Wales.

We would love to hear from you too. Head to our contact page and tell us about your Sydney adventures.

Happy exploring!
