Beautiful Hyde Park

If you love walking, maybe even to the point that you might find yourself as some sort of walking junkie then take heart - these are the go to places to go walking in Sydney.

1. Glebe Bicentennial Park

Glebe Bicentennial Park

A spacious park near the Metro light rail which provides for a never a dull moment experience. Many locals walk their dogs around here, and there are also great harbour views as it is in close vicinity of the Anzac Bridge. Beautiful greenery and ambience. Great to do once in a while if you are bored of your current walking trail.

2. Hyde Park

The waterfall in Hyde Park

Trees and nature with beautiful lights on at night. At a certain times of the year, art is on for show and tell, and regardless of what time you are walking through Hyde Park (day or night), you will be satisfied with a short stroll from Liverpool Street, right through to the start of Macquarie Street, just past St Mary's Cathedral. Great waterfalls.

3. Bay Run/Walk

This 7km trail along Sydney's Inner West can be started at any vantage point and it provides for a feel-good fitness experience. While it does get crowded on weekends, anytime is a great time to do this walk (of course before it gets dark) and you might not need your water bottle. Regular walkers can easily get this walk done at a steady speed within 45-60 minutes.

4. Royal Botanical Gardens

Just like the Glebe Bicentennial Park, great backdrops of Sydney Harbour are to be enjoyed with an abundance of greenery and nature. Watch the ferries come into Circular Quay and if you heading towards Woolloomooloo, take a moment and observe the beauty of the Sydney Harbour Bridge.

5. Brighton Le-Sands to Sandringham Walk

One of the greatest beach side walks in Sydney. Really popular with couples in particular, but if you are walking alone, you will like this walk on a Saturday morning. Not as long and wide as the Bay Run, yet still a great walk.

6. Spit Bridge to Manly Bushwalk

If you are more of a long distance walker and want a change of scenery from the Bay Run (Walk), try this intense bushwalk that takes three hours and 45 minutes to complete over 9.1kms.
