Over the past few months, Northern Beaches Council has been offering a variety of activities to celebrate the rich cultural and natural heritage of Middle and North Harbour.
There's still a chance to get out and discover what makes this area special. Join us for one or both of the remaining activities. Be quick - places are limited!
Aboriginal Heritage Walk & Talks
Explore this stunning part of Manly Scenic Walkway from the viewpoint of the traditional owners of the land. Stand where the original inhabitants stood as they gathered and prepared meals, see how they used natural structures to shelter from the elements, and discover the plants they used for foods and medicines.

Meeting place: Gourlay Avenue carpark for a walk through Wellings Reserve.
While the walks are rated ‘easy’, they require ascending and descending staircases and moderate hills.
Precautions should be taken against the risk of ticks, mosquitos, spiders, snakes, sun exposure, dehydration and slips or falls.
Participants are advised to wear light, protective clothing – long sleeves and pants, comfortable walking shoes (no thongs or ‘flip-flops’!) and a hat. Please bring sunscreen and a water bottle.
Warning: We have been experiencing a high prevalence of ticks in the Northern Beaches area which are associated with a range of diseases and potentially life-threatening allergic reactions.
Please note that by registering for these activities you are aware of the risks and have taken appropriate precautions.
