There is no denying that Sydney is a spectacular city… Having done most of the best walks in Sydney several times, I am still amazed at how easy it is to get lost in nature on a coastal walk without having to actually leave town.

There is no shortage of gorgeous views in Sydney, you could almost become blase about it. In order not to forget that I live in one of the world’s most spectacular, I love going back to Sydney’s spectacular viewpoints. Every time, I get a reminder of how fortunate I am to live here and how much Sydney has to give to the explorer.

Australia probably has some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. In fact, it has many of the most beautiful beaches in the world! I only say “probably” to be safe but the fact is, many Australians are adamant that they indeed have the most beautiful beaches in the world. And I have to agree with them… The beach is a very strong element of the Australian lifestyle and this is especially true in Sydney. Having lived here for some time now, I am familiar with many beaches but I spent a few days touring the coast in order to find the most beautiful beaches in Sydney. The result? You can live in a large metropolitan city and have a huge range of magnificent beaches to choose from…
One of the best in places in Sydney for a day trip is The Basin. Beyond Sydney’s northern beaches, The Basin is a little secret spot tucked away in the meanders of Pittwater. If you are looking for Sydney hidden beaches, this is an isolated gem on the edge of Ku-Ring-Gai National Park, sheltered in quiet waters but ready to escape into the South Pacific Ocean. Shaded by gum trees and populated by diverse wildlife, The Basin is Sydney’s Best Kept Secret.
