Jam your Joggers on and walk Sydney's Harbour Foreshore

The Fantasea Harbour Hike is an annual 12 km walking event that takes place along one of the most picturesque, but least known walks in Sydney. It is one of Sydney's favourite community events, bringing together friends and family to get out and enjoy the fresh sea air, while exploring and learning about Sydney Harbour. This year it will be held on Sunday 30th August 2015.

Participants will commence the hike under Sydney Harbour Bridge in Bradfield Plaza, Milsons Point from 8.00am, click here for details on the course and different start time options. The 12 km course is an easy to moderate walk taking around 2.5 to 3.5 hrs weaving along the spectacular Harbour foreshore to Chowder Bay. Hike past beautiful tree lined streets, historic federation homes, exploring hidden coves and beaches and waterside walkways. Learn the mysteries that lie beneath the surface of Sydney Harbour, with SIMS scientists dotted along the course to educate you.
