The Southern ‘Taster’ walk focuses on the eastern side of Sydney’s magnificent Harbour and allows walkers to immerse themselves in the unique environment that includes the quiet, often deserted beaches of The Hermitage Foreshore Walking Track.

The tour departs The Rocks at 7.30am as we head by private transfer to our starting point in South Coogee. Our first days’ walk hugs the coastline as we make our way north from Coogee along The Eastern Beaches Coastal Walkway. With its stunning beaches, dramatic clifftop sectors and inviting rock pools, the Walkway is the perfect introduction to The Emerald Way.
We encounter the impressive ‘Sesquicentenary Boardwalk’ behind Waverly Cemetery as well as the wildly popular Bronte to Bondi path before midday, so there’s a chance to have a swim at the iconic Bondi Icebergs Club prior to lunch at the Iceberg’s Club Bistro.
In the afternoon, a quick private transfer brings us to the Federation Cliff Walk as we head toward Watsons Bay. Towering cliffs, a lighthouse (or two) and of course the broiling cauldron that is The Gap are all encountered before we arrive at The South Head Heritage Trail which soon loops back to our accommodation, The Watsons Bay Boutique Hotel. There’s time to relax and reflect on the day’s adventures before re-joining your group for an evening feast at The Watsons Bay Beach Club.
A relaxed breakfast sets us up nicely for the first Harbour walking sector. Highlights this morning include crossing the Parsley Bay suspension bridge (built 1903) and an exploration of the grounds of Vaucluse House. After entering the Hermitage Foreshore Walking track we’ll pass secluded beaches, historical Strickland House and the Convent Heart Cemetery before rendezvousing at Hermit Point with our private water taxi that will whisk us across the harbour to Woolloomooloo Bay.
After morning tea we follow Mrs Macquarie’s Bushland Walk into the Royal Botanic Gardens then past the Sydney Opera House and into Circular Quay for lunch at Squire’s Landing after which your tour concludes.
The 2-Day Southern ‘Taster’ Walk includes all accommodation, meals, transfers during the walk and two expert local guides.
