You have to stay in shape. My grandmother, she started walking five miles a day when she was 60. She’s 97 today and we don’t know where the hell she is. (Ellen Degeneres)

There are some great walks in Sydney. Possibly the most well-known is the Bondi to Coogee coast walk, and certainly its one to put on your ‘to do’ list for any visit to Syders. My old standard is the Bay Run around Iron Cove (I wrote about it here). I can usually be found there at least once a week, and I love it.

But, this weekend we ventured a little further afield. We crossed the bridge and headed to North Harbour Reserve for a spot of ball throwing before undertaking the last couple of kilometres of the Spit Bridge to Manly scenic walk. If you’re going the whole hog, the walk is about 10 km one way, but it is made up of a series of short tracks, mostly less than 1-2km. Each track covers a themed section of the harbour, so covering all of them in one walk is a great way to experience some of the diversity of Sydney Harbour’s bays, beaches and bushland.

We have been experiencing a bit of an Indian summer (although that may have turned today!) so despite being in the depths of Autumn down here, there were still sun worshippers and swimmers out enjoying the fab’ weather…
