Bondi to Bridge – 32km
Starting at the north end of famous Bondi Beach, you will walk the coast along the South Head of Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs. Walking past Indigenous sites and historical landmarks such as Macquarie Lighthouse and the Wreck of the Dunbar. After passing Sydney’s dramatic rock faces at The Gap, you’ll reach Hornby Lighthouse at the tip of South Head, before looping around to Watsons Bay Wharf and reaching your first checkpoint for a rest and refuel, 10km into your walk.
With stunning Harbour views on your right, you’ll continue walking, through the Hermitage Foreshore Walk, passing many historical cottages, reserves, small beaches and inviting bays for a quick swim. The Walk continues along the coastline, passing many beautiful points with spectacular views before reaching The Domain, Mrs Macquarie’s Chair, Farm Cove and The Royal Botanic Garden; all Heritage parts of Sydney. You’ll emerge from The Royal Botanic Gardens and end up in front of the iconic Sydney Opera House. To finish off the day, you’ll cross the Sydney Harbour Bridge, where you can take a perfect photo of the Harbour from above. After reaching the north end of the bridge you are only a few steps away from the finish line under the bridge in Bradfield Park.
