Relax and walk while taking in the river views
On the weekends, I need to get out and about to stretch my legs. Since working from home most days, I have a new appreciation of spending time outdoors when I can. Having tried a few different walking paths in the inner west area recently, the short walking track between Cabarita Swimming Centre to the corner of Hilly Street and Tennyson Road in Breakfast Point tends to be the one that I enjoy the most.
The walk is a little over 4 km and takes under an hour both ways. It isn't the type of walk you need your hiking boots for, nothing to strenuous, just a walk through Cabarita Park, along Cabarita Beach, past Cabarita Wharf, along the walking path to Breakfast Point. It continues along the waterfront to Tennyson Road.
If you plan on making the return trip, I recommend parking your car at Cabarita Park, where there is paid parking, or better still, on Cabarita Road, where you may need to walk a couple of minutes more, but the parking is free. If you prefer public transport, there is a bus service to the Park. The 502 and 466 bus services will get you there.
My recommendation is to complete the walk in the morning or late afternoon, as it can get rather hot in the summer months, and there is limited shade. There is plenty to enjoy along the path, whether it be the native flora and fauna, views across the Parramatta River, or just getting out for exercise while enjoying the scenery.
