Coastal Walk with Spectacular Ocean Views

Bushwalking is one of my favourite pastimes and second to that is photography, so walking and taking photographs is my ideal day out. I'm fortunate to live on the northern beaches which has a plethora of walking trails either in the bush near the lake or along the coastline. In the early days, the Aborigines favoured areas like Narrabeen and Turimetta, due to being right on the coast and the area's abundance of wildlife, flora fauna and sea life. Food resources include shellfish, fish and bush foods, fruits, nuts, seeds, leaves, roots, bulbs, honey, nectar and insect larva. So if Australian history and the aboriginal way of life interests you, then you would enjoy this walk. I decided to commence the walk from Narrabeen Headland.

The walking track from Narrabeen headland Pittwater council car park starts on an elevated timber staircase. It is an easy to moderate walk and takes around 20 minutes each way to Warriewood beach, depending how much time you stop to take photographs.

There is plenty of parking at Narrabeen beach council car park. It is free for vehicles displaying Warringah Council parking permits and pay 'n' display is available for those without. The cost for pay 'n' display parking is: Monday to Friday - $6 an hour or $10 all day Weekends - $26 all day. Or you can park further up the road off Pearl Place and join the trail there. I wanted to get the full benefits of each lookout, so I started at the timber staircase. After only a few minutes, you are already enjoying stunning views.



This is a great lookout to take some beautiful photographs of the Narrabeen coastline and lagoon area.





You could easily spend 15 minutes here just taking photos. The stretch of beach all the way to Long Reef is beautiful.



The best part of the walk is yet to come. Turimetta Beach is around the bend on the way to Warriewood Beach. The walkway weaves through bushland to more lookout spots overlooking rocky cliffs and more coastline.

After around 8 minutes you come across more viewing points looking across the beautiful Turimetta Beach.

Turimetta Beach


Sheltered by high sea cliffs Turimetta beach is known for its natural beauty, constantly evolving seascape and interesting rock formations.





The walking track winds out to the top of Pearl Place, where you can either go back via the road or continue on down to Turimetta Beach and start the Turimetta Bicentennial coastal walk.

The Bicentennial coastal walk begins at the top of Turimetta Beach weaving through bush land.



You will come across some more viewing areas and then it winds further up via some steps. There are around 20 low steps on and off but I still considered the walk to be relatively easy, but I do recommend taking a bottle of water with you as it can get quite hot especially if in the middle of the day.







Eventually you will come out at the top before Warriewood beach where you can see the view stretching across Mona Vale beach to as far as Palm Beach. This is where I stopped my walk and went to one of the nearby cafes at the top of Warriewood beach for a refreshment.

I was so happy to have done this walk as I didn't realise how spectacular the views were. There really is so much to see and I plan to continue the walk further up past Mona Vale and explore more stunning coastline on another occasion soon. Check out the Pittwater Council website for more information on these walking tracks.
