Beautiful coastal views, beaches and bushlands
Each year millions of people experience the spectacular views and special experiences of the Eastern Beaches Coastal Walkway. It is one of Australia's most popular attractions. It passes by patrolled beaches, through wetlands, Aboriginal sites, coastal heaths and bushland, offers unique coastal views, and whale watching opportunities during the winter whale migrations. There are cafes, picnic shelters and bbq facilities as well as accessible toilets and change rooms along the Walkway.
The completion of a continuous Walkway from Clovelly to La Perouse is a key priority for Randwick City Council. Four sections of the Walkway are completed in Randwick City, with other sections at different stages of planning and construction.

The Coastal Walkway is listed as one of the top things to do in Sydney on Trip Advisor.
