What you'll do

This is a tour of some of the best secret spots on the beautiful Northern Beaches of Sydney , tricky to access independently. First I will collect you from Manly, at your accommodation or the wharf. You can catch the ferry here from the city at Sydney’s Circular Quay - (give yourself 30-40 minutes for this). After we meet I will drive you to a lookout overlooking Sydney Harbour, for a coffee. Then a 45 minute drive along the stunning coast, where we will see many beaches, such as Freshwater, Curl Curl, Narrabeen and then stopping at Palm Beach (the Home & Away beach) for 1 hour of swimming, snorkelling or surf lessons. If waves are not your thing, we have options to boogie board, snorkel or swim in a stunning 50 metre Rockpool . Then we will drive nearby to our next beauty spot - a half hour walk up to the lighthouse , with a view looking back across Sydney. It’s a great place to spot whales in the right season. We will relax at the top for brunch. Then we will drive 5 minutes away, to a beautiful cafe over the water for lunch. Then I will drive you back to Manly where you can enjoy the vibe in one of the many cafes before catching the ferry back to the city.
