One of the best walks around Sydney... spectacular views of the coast and great swimming beaches. There are some variations you can do to avoid "back tracking" if you are doing this as a return walk.

One of the first walks I ever completed. Started at Macmasters beach. Maitland Bay is a piece of paradise, easily accessible from Sydney. A must-do!

Not too much to see on the first half of the walk (starting from the Macmasters Beach / east end) but the second half has some spectacular views. Photography wise it would be better to do this one early morning or on a summers day. Too late in the afternoon is difficult to get good shots as the cliffs cast large shadows over the views.
