This walk combines fine coastal views with two points of historical interest. From the start of this walk the sidetrip to the coastal cemetery is short and gives a glimpse into lives of past generations. The World War II bunker is worth having a look around as you pass directly by it. Spend some time exploring the exposed headland that is Cape Banks. Look for old historical structures and the shipwreck of the SS Minmi on the western side of Cape Banks. If you’re lucky you could even see migrating whales on this classic Sydney coastal walk.
