Sydney Olympic Park has a wonderful collection of walks for all fitness levels. If you're looking for somewhere new to walk to spice up your health routine. If you're thinking about becoming healthier. If you'd just like to dawdle and look at the scenery. Or push a pram around. Or have teenagers you'd like to inspire to a healthier lifestyle. Look no further than Wentworth Common to begin your fitness journey.

Wentworth Common Sydney

The biodiversity in the area is to be commended.

The common is part of the vast parklands at Sydney Olympic Park open for public use. Once owned by D'Arcy Wentworth, a surgeon on the second fleet. He became a champion horse stud farmer on land he named Home Bush. It is rich in history and the Olympic Park planners have done a good job of preserving not only the history of the area but the Bell Frog as well.

Biodiversity has been preserved and encouraged. This makes the walking trails a lovely haven for Sydneysiders and tourists alike. Who knew you could find so many species of bird so close to the city?

As you enter the common, you can turn left or right to complete the scenic circuit.

The highlight of the walk for those who are up to it is climbing the Bay Marker lookout to take in the views. There is a spiraling pathway. Accessible to prams, bikes and walkers.

There are 360 degree views from the top.

There are facilities near the carpark entrance and water fountains along the way. Parking is situated close by with its own car park. There are also two playgrounds more suited to older children or teenagers on the Common. And plenty of picnic and BBQ facilities. So there is no excuse for getting fit and having a fun day out.

Why not organise a group and get down there this weekend? Leave us your experiences of this walk in the comments box.
