Explore Sydney Harbour at first light on Fit City Tour’s Sydney Harbour Running Tour. This small group tour takes runners around the city’s most famous attractions including the Sydney Opera House and The Sydney Harbour Bridge. Operating daily at 7am, this 9km adventure bounds along the harbour, where you’ll witness firsthand the sparkling seas and home of Pixar’s beloved Nemo!
To get this two hour running tour started, we’ll lace up our sneakers at Hyde Park, the oldest public parkland in Australia. From there, we’ll jog past many well known natural landmarks including Mrs Macquaries Chair, a rock carved into the shape of a bench for the wife of Major General Lachlan Macquarie, and a favourite for both locals and tourists to snap that perfect photo overlooking the harbour. Afterwards, the tour will head over to the Botanic Gardens to experience the gorgeous greenery rooted right in the heart of the city.
Together, we’ll run by the Sydney Opera House, one of the most famous and beloved architectural masterpieces of the twentieth century, as well as several other historic focal points such as George Street’s former police station, Cadman’s Cottage. The tour continues to gain momentum as your Sydney tour guide leads the group over the Sydney Harbour Bridge to explore some of the most interesting hidden sights scattered throughout the harbour, such as Lavender Bay, the harbourside suburb with vast views of Sydney Harbour, and Wendy's Secret Garden, a local artist’s green sanctuary nestled in the bustling city. Runners will cruise by Luna Park, Sydney’s oldest and most famous amusement park.
In our final stretch, we’ll run by Kirribilli House, home of Australia’s Prime Minister, and ask him to coffee before feeding our post-run caffeine fix at the Wharf. To close out the running tour, we’ll unwind on the Ferry back to Circular Quay.
