Looking North from our accommodation – Bulli Beach

Itinerary: this is an overview only:

Sydney 'Short Break' – This trip is built around adventure cycling and possibly a little exploring on foot:

Day 1: Morning pick-ups and general tour organisation and prep.  We will lunch at North Heads around 12:00 and then drive to the Northern Beaches and cycle Narrabeen Lakes/Lagoon - approx. distance 20KMs.

The alternative could be a walk from Manly to Spit Bridge (approx. 10KMs). A mix of formed tracks, beach walks (sand between the toes), bush, suburbia, rocky headlands and great scenery. 

We will also have a look around North Head and lots more and have some great accommodation lined up for the night – something unusual and historic, with a great restaurant. 

There would be time to fly into Sydney that morning for those with time constraints.

Dinner included.

Day 2: Relocate after breakfast to Olympic Park and cycle to Botany Bay return on the Cooks River Trail - approx. distance 65KMs.

Mostly on formed bike paths and plenty of variety for a great day in the saddle.  We will lunch on the beachfront at Brighton-Le-Sands and then back for dinner at Olympic Park.

Breakfast & dinner included.

Days 3 & 4: A bike ride from Botany Bay south to Wollongong (80 to 100kms approx. over two days).  This will be a mix of paths and public road – beach side and bush.  The gradients will mainly be gentle and kind but there are some ‘undulations’ through Royal National Park just to get the heart rate up - the vehicle will be used to transport some stages.  The ride out of Royal and south to Wollongong is via the Grand Pacific Drive and is breathtaking - starting high on the cliffs with massive views and then we head down to sea level, through many small seaside hamlets, including a ride along the Sea Cliff cantilever bridge structure which is awesome! 

The plan is to start riding early on day 3 and ride down the coast through to Cronulla, cross via ferry to Bundeena where we will regroup for morning tea/lunch.  Then there are some ride sections on the bitumen road through Royal National Park with a stop at one of the beautiful remote bays.  Back on the bikes we continue on through the National Park – the gradient gets a little more challenging on this section so there may be transport options in the 'sag wagon' if required!

The pace will be relaxing and we will load up before the climbing starts and the road narrows and head to our accommodation at Bulli Beach. Distance today could be up to 50KMs.

Day 4 we drive back to Stanwell Bluff and then ride from that point, across the impressive Sea Cliff Bridge and into Bulli.  This is an awesome ride!

We will break for lunch at Bulli and drive up to the Illawarra escarpment and the amazing info centre and restaurant, spectacular views, - this is an amazing spot.  Then it's back to Bulli and on the bikes to Wollongong return - all on paths - to round out this great trip.  Distance approx. 45 - 50KMs.

Our accommodation for days 3 & 4 is all about location - right on the beach and bike path at Bulli Beach north of Wollongong.  The cabins are good quality, comfortable with all amenities, cooking facilities and BBQs on the deck overlooking the ocean.  Ideal for that relaxing social dinner on one of the nights we are there. 

Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner include both days.

Day 5: Transfer back to Sydney airport in the morning for connections with departure flights.  Or other arrangements can be discussed.

Breakfast included.
