Easy access parking and worthwhile to take the leisurely drive to this iconic view across the Sydney harbour entrance. Very, VERY crowded on the Sydney to Hobart race day. Bring your camera and enjoy the serenity.

With Magnificent views south looking down the harbour it is a must do when in the Manly area. Public bus takes you there from Manly or you can walk in.

If on the northern beaches definitely worth a visit. Great view over north head and looking back at Sydney. There is a coffee shop nearby which does OK coffee and food. You can walk there from manly, takes about an hour. Very picturesque walk.

A 40-minute ferry ride from Circular Quay will take
you to the famous northern beach of Manly. The beaches
here are perfect for learning to surf or spending the
day sun-tanning. The walk from Spit Bridge to Manly is
a great way to experience Sydney Harbour Bay and the
Australian bush land. Along the foreshore, there are
plenty of watering holes and wine bars with excellent
cuisine. There are plenty of kid-friendly restaurants

Hi. Well, you better to get uber or taxi to drive you there. It's a long walk and mainly uphills also through the national park you will have quite a bit of walking. Hope this help:)
