La Perouse

weekend walks: cape banks circuit

Posted on Updated on

Don’t let the blue skies and sunshine fool you. The temperatures had dropped and there were very high winds for our walk. There were certainly high swells when looking out at sea.

The Cape Banks Circuit was a really pleasant walk that covered about 7.3km. We started at Congwong Beach before stumbling accidentally onto a nudist beach. As you can imagine, we were a little overdressed (excuse the pun).

When we managed to get back on the right track, we worked out way to Henry Head, through dead forests and dense bushlands. Once we arrived at Henry Head what we saw was gorgeous coastline and a WWII battery and fort.

From Henry Head, we walked along the coast and cliff where it was all unfenced. With winds as strong as they were, we stayed well on the track towards Cape Banks Bridge.

This last photo is us leaving Cape Banks behind. As always, our walk was not dull 🙂

Walking back to where our car was parked, there was a snake presentation on. It was extremely educational and we really wished we had heard this talk before we encountered snakes on our walk at Manly Dam

The start of this walk is in La Perouse which is approximately 14 km south-east of Sydney.

Hope you enjoy our photos and have a great week ahead.
