Sydney's best harbourside walks

Many of Sydney's stunning walking trails can now be experienced for the first time on new guided walking tours designed to showcase the natural beauty of Australia's largest city.

Sydney Coast Walks, formerly known as Royal Coast Walks, has rebranded to reflect their expanded walking tour options, from Royal National Park hikes to include a newly launched range of Sydney Harbour National Park guided walks.

It's the first time many of Sydney's renowned coastal walking trails have been included as dedicated walking tours, ranging from half-day to two-day walks.

Founder Ian Wells, said: "Most people don't realise there are walking trails all around Sydney's harbourfront.
