When you are a visitor to a place, there is nothing like the knowledge of a local to take you to some of the lesser known but equally interesting corners of a city. Sydney has plenty of fascinating nooks and crannies, many of which a lot of the locals don't even know about. So if you are a visitor or a local and eager to do a little exploring on or off the beaten track, here are hundreds of suggestions to get you going.
Most major towns and cities are in a constant state of change. The old is removed to make way for the new; infrastructure is expanded or replaced to keep up with growth and technological advances. Every generation removes a little from its past and replaces it with something relating to the present in the hope that it will be of use in the future. From its beginnings in 1788 as a haggle of tents in the virgin bushland that once surrounded Sydney Cove, to the international city we see today, Sydney has gone through some incredible changes. We look back at some of the things Sydney has lost during two centuries of change.
Bondi to Coogee Beach Coastal Walk
A cliff top coastal walk, the Bondi to Coogee walk extends for six km in Sydney s eastern suburbs. The walk features stunning views, beaches, parks, cliffs, bays and rock pools.
The beaches and parks offer a place to rest, swim or a chance to eat at one of the cafes, hotels, restaurants or takeaways. The walk is not difficult, there are medium gradient paths and several staircases with occasional seating.
Name another city with a 8 metre high waterfall just 5 km from the city centre.
