Completing Sydney

An attempt to visit every suburb in Sydney.

Hello and happy August.


It's a bit of a tradition for this blog that I do something a little bit special for August - the blog's anniversary month. Well, this year I figured I give walking all the way across Sydney a crack, and make a video of the attempt.


Episode one is below and involves me walking across 5 (new) Northern Beaches suburbs. And yes, I am counting these as visits for the purposes of the blog - I need to get through these, people.

The Route

The overall challenge involves attempting to walk all the way across Sydney in a roughly straight route, which for me is the ocean at Dee Why Beach to the end of Penrith Council at Emu Heights

It crosses the Northern Beaches, through to the Northern and Northwest Suburbs and then across vast Western Sydney to reach the end goal. 


Part one takes me through:

  • Dee Why
  • Narraweena
  • Beacon Hill
  • Frenchs Forest
  • Belrose
  • (and into St Ives)

Come back next Sunday for part 2 of the journey.

Before I start, this is a mini-announcement that this Sunday will be an Anniversary Special. Every year for this blog's August anniversary I've done something a bit different to my usual content. Year 1 was the Carlingford Line Extravaganza Bonanza, Year 2 was my video deep dive on Blacktown - "The Greatest Day Trip Out of Sydney", and for Year 3, I let you choose where to send me. So what's Year 4? Come back on Sunday to find out.


Now, after a big few weeks, it's time to finally wrap up the lands north of Mount Druitt. As such, the last Outer Western piece for now is

It's a longstanding Sydney tradition that when a tourist asks where to go in this fine town, you recommend that they scale Mount Druitt (or at least Rooty Hill). As such, it's only fair that we give the suburb a chance to be something more.

Have you enjoyed our bulk-trip through some of Western Sydney 's far reaches? Well, I hope so, because here are two more. Emerton
