Guide | La Perouse to Maroubra coastal walk via Henry’s Head and Cape Banks

The La Perouse to Maroubra walking track is divided into two sections –

  1. Henry’s Head and Cape Banks Walk and
  2. Continuing the walk to Maroubra.

Henry’s Head and Cape Banks Walk

A spectacular coastal walk in the suburb of La Perouse in Sydney is the Henry’s Head and Cape Banks Walks. La Perouse is around 14 kilometres from Sydney CBD. The Cape Banks walk is an extension to Henry’s Head walk. The walk is an easy walk offering great views of the ocean and is a good spot for whale watching (even though I did not see a single whale). One can view the World War II bunkers and a fort at Henry Head.

This was the last weekend walk before the actual weekend of The Bloody Long Walk.

Note: Be prepared to see lots of reptiles on the way.
