Here’s a walk that’s gorgeous on a sunny Sydney day and fine for kids, so long as they are old enough to walk carefully.
If yours are still bolters or a bit wild, do not do this walk as it runs alongside cliffs.
This isn’t a long walk, about 3-4km depending on where you start from in Dee Why. But it feels like an adventure, and the views north to Long Reef and beyond will send even the saggiest spirits flying free.
The track is pretty rough and rocky, with lots of steps cut into the sandstone. It’s a narrow track too and all higglety pigglety. It feels a million miles away from city living. Perfect.
Now then, this is not a walk for strollers, and certainly not one for very young children.
It’s very beautiful and thrilling for kids who are safe near cliffs and good walkers.
You can see Curl Curl beach down there. If you walked all the way to the end you could have a coffee or lunch at the great cafe at South Curly.
On the way back I stopped to look down at the water. My stomach always lurches, just like it does at Scenic World, a feeling I find oddly pleasant.
We turn around and walk back to beautiful Dee Why.
