Our Sydney Harbourfront Walking Tour follows the water's edge throughout it's length except for the last kilometre where it turns back into the city passing through Hyde Park along the way. At 10 kilometres it is a fairly long walk. To allow for a leisurely pace, stopping to take pictures, and perhaps get some lunch we recommend allowing at least 4 hours for this walk. This beautiful walk takes along a total of 5 bays and coves and passed by a good number of Sydney's major attractions and landmarks along the way. The attractions along this walk are all linked to in the directions below.
It should be noted that part of this walk follows the Barangaroo Foreshore Walk which is only open between dawn and dusk and is sometimes closed for special events. If either affects you just follow the harbour north along adjacent Sussex Street and Hickson Road for that portion.
The walk begins at either Harbourside Monorail Station or Pyrmont Bay Light Rail Station and concludes at either St. James Railroad Station or City Centre Monorail Station. The end point is also just slightly north of Town Hall Station. If you wish to do a considerably shorter version of this walking tour you could also end at Circular Quay which will reduce the walk to just under 6 kilometres.
That's pretty much it. You can connect with public transport at St. James Station, or you can can continue west out of the park on Market Street for two blocks to City Centre Monorail Station where you can catch the Monorail back to the starting point or anywhere else you would like to go on it.
