Harbour Bridge to The Spit Bridge walking track is a 16.5km, grade 3 one way hike, located in the Sydney Harbour National Park, New South Wales. The hike should take approximately 5.5hrs to complete.

Hike Summary

This stunning urban foreshore walk begins at the Sydney Harbour Bridge. Start at the bridge’s southern end in The Rocks or its northern end at Milsons Point, and then follow its signage around the harbour’s northern shores.
On this superbly scenic route, you’ll tread the paths of history as you pass harbour fortifications and Federation homes. You’ll walk some of the city’s most interesting and exclusive streets and find yourself ensconced in beautiful bushland and rainforest remnants.

Hike east past Taronga Zoo and into Sydney Harbour National Park, home of the incredible Bradleys, Chowder and Middle Heads. Be sure to stop at Athol Hall for a cuppa and a bite to eat, before continuing on to the exquisite Balmoral Beach for a swim. Then press on until you reach The Spit Bridge; you may even get there in time to see it open and rise to allow boats through.

It’s easy to break this walk up into shorter sections by parking partway along the route, catching the bus or the ferry at Mosman or Taronga Zoo wharves.
