Barrenjoey Lighthouse to Palm Beach Walk
Barrenjoey Headland is an area of historic importance. Once an island, it became joined to the headland over 6000 years ago. Named before Sydney, it was a peril to sailors, hence the lighthouse. Taking in the most northern tip of Sydney, this track, rugged in places, winds for over five kilometers, through smuggler's trails, eucalyptus forests, heath land of banksias and wattles and back to the golden sands and million dollar properties of Palm Beach . Allow at least three hours for this walk. To return to the city catch Bus 190 from Ocean Place.

Great Views, Easy Walk, Free

It is an interesting but easy walk up to the light house, even for very young children. Fantasic views all the way to the top and then even better views when you get there. On Sundays you can have a guided tour up the light house and you are given a history of the place. Bring some water and lamington and have a little picnic when you get to the top. Great way to entertain the kids on a Sunday afternoon. You have to pay a very small amount of money for the tour, like about $3 for adults and even less for kids, but you don't need any money if you just want a great walk and excellent family photo's of the best beaches in the world.
