We uncover the hidden gems of the Northern Beaches you might otherwise miss: beaches, bars and best spots for sharks (ummm, we mean, whales).
Walking On a Dream
Manly is an absolute gold mine of flora and fauna and rich history. For days you can immerse yourself in all the natural wonder that surrounds us. We have the famous spit walk, the whole coastline and more to get lost in.
If you want to get even deeper into Sydney’s aboriginal history, see the remaining war bunkers and explore the wonders of Sydney Harbour we are delighted to announce that Alan from Ecowalkstours has partnered up with Stoke to show all you lords the beauty of the land we inhabit.
The tour starts at Taronga Zoo with a welcome and acknowledgement of the Borogegal People of the Middle Headland who are the traditional custodians of the land. for thousands of years, the Aboriginal people of this area sheltered in the sandstone rock overhangs on the sea cliffs and fished along the shorelines. Soon, you’ll be walking on the same ancient trails that the Borogegal People walked along in Sydney Harbour National Park.
Whilst venturing under the thick canopies of Sydney’s signature gum trees you have the chance to brush shoulders with water dragons, blue tongue lizards, rainbow lorikeets, brush turkeys and even elusive king parrots.
There is no need for maps and guidebooks when you have Alan with you. Alan is an accredited NSW Parks Eco Pass tour operator who has so much knowledge about the ecology, the Borogegal People, local history of Mosman and Sydney’s military history too. He is a naturalist who will show you the best photo ops and a conservationist who will point out the native flora and fauna as well as some amazing rock carvings. Alan is a return from active service member, a high school teacher and he has a professional background in adventure tourism too. Alan is a full frother and we are stoked to have him on board to show you all the beauty Sydney has to offer.
