Walking is our kind of vibe. It gets you moving, gets your heart rate up, and we've got some seriously stunning routes at our disposal. So, yeah, walking is our fave exercise. And, because we’re certain walking is just about everyone’s cup of tea, we’ve whipped up this handy little guide to Sydney’s absolute best walks that tick off the holy trinity of walking route essentials: they’re pretty, they’re near good cafes, and dogs are more than welcome. So share this with your #Fitspo pals and prepare to get your sweat on—whoever said walking was an, er walk in the park was seriously wrong.
...and our mates at Pump are going to be at each of these locations to give walkers a taste of the brand new Pump+ Natural Electrolytes from 10 - 3:30pm on select days. If you need the deets right this very second, though, Pump+ Natural Electrolytes includes coconut water for a natural source of electrolytes (and also because, yum).
Bondi to Bronte
Bondi to Bronte is about as Sydney as you can get. Whether you’re there to get fit or pretend to be fit, you can expect a long walk full of beautiful people, spectacular views and instagrammable AF beaches. Start at Bondi then trek your way down to Bronte, stopping at every beach for a dip along the way. If you’re feeling extra energetic, walk all the way to Coogee and reward yourself with a seafood feast at the oh-so famous Coogee Pavilion. Plan your visit to be on the 13th of January to score your taste of Pump+.
Rose Bay to Watsons Bay
No matter how times you do the Rose Bay to Watsons Bay walk, it always feels like a secret. Hidden away along the harbour coastline, this track lets you peak into some of Sydney’s most affluent suburbs (read: OTT mansions) and spend the day discovering Sydney’s best not so secret beaches (we’re talking Milk Beach, Parsley Bay and Nielsen Beach). Head down on the 16th of December or 14th or 20th of January if you're keen to try Pump+.
Circular Quay to Mrs Macquaries Chair
Channel your inner tourist and take on the most famous walk in Sydney. Beginning at the Circular Quay, get an eye full of the Harbour Bridge, stroll past the Opera House then make your way through the Royal Botanic Garden to Mrs Macquarie’s Chair. Don’t forget to pack a picnic so you can watch the sun go down without getting hangry. Mark December 17 in your diary because that's when the Pump+ crew will be there dishing out free goodies!
Glebe Foreshore Walk
Anyone with a pup will love the Glebe Foreshore Walk. Made up of four parks, three of which are completely off-leash (aka Federal Park, Bicentennial Park and Blackwattle Bay Park), you and your four legged friend can stroll completely worry free while taking in some of the best views in Sydney. January 6 is the magic day of freebies here.
The Bay Run
Don’t let the name scare you off—in no way does The Bay Run mean you actually have to run. Perfect for pounding the pavement with your bestie, you can go as fast or as slow as you want. The 7km circuit is popular with locals for a reason: it’s completely flat. Praise be. January 7 and 21 are the perfect day for a walk here (because that's when Pump+ will be on deck!)
Text your walking buddy, it's on like Donkey Kong! Keep moving with Pump here.
