Tour Details:

Join Bushranger Bikes for some adventure magic - walking the North Shore of Sydney Harbour and then riding the bike south from Botany Bay to Wollongong. 

This tour is all about the ocean – Sydney Harbour, secluded bays, coastal headlands, inlets and quiet waterways, big boats, beautiful sandy beaches, remote Royal National Park, breathtaking scenery from the bluffs above Stanwell Park, the awesome Sea Cliff Bridge, quiet seaside hamlets, Wollongong and the Illawarra Escarpment.

You can expect crisp clear skies, clean fresh air, unbelievable seascapes, views and scenery unmatched anywhere else in Australia, all to be enjoyed by foot and from your bike.

Looking North from our accommodation – Bulli Beach

Itinerary:

Sydney 'Short Break' – This trip is built around 2 adventure activities:

Day 1: Starting at approximately 10:00AM, we take on a 10 to 20km (return) half day walk from Manly to Spit Bridge – real contrasts – a mix of formed tracks, beach walks (sand between the toes), bush, suburbia, rocky headlands and great scenery.  Plus plenty of flash houses and big boats thrown in for that ‘Sydney WOW factor’.  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 are massages available from qualified practitioners (own coast, bookings required) if the limbs are tired after the walk! 

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

Dinner included.

Days 2 & 3: A bike ride from Botany Bay south to Wollongong (80kms approx.) over a day and a half – hybrid and road bikes would be ideal.  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 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 structure which is awesome! 

The plan is to start riding early on day 2 and ride down through Cronulla, cross via ferry to Bundeena where we will regroup for morning tea.  Then it is a ride on the bitumen road through Royal National Park with a picnic lunch 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 but nothing that should worry anyone.  The sag wagon will be available if required!

The pace will be relaxing and if the day (and distance) gets away from us then we can pull up and vehicle transfer to our accommodation and come back on day 3 and ride from that point through to Wollongong for lunch.

The second part of day 3 will be taken up with visits to the Illawarra escarpment and the amazing info centre, awesome views, and an option to be 'blown away' at the Illawarra Fly Tree Top Walk.

Our accommodation for days 2 & 3 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 4: Transfer back to Sydney airport in the morning for connections with departure flights.

Breakfast included.
