This tour starts at 7am in Sydney's Chinatown. Running past the Chinatown gates and the newly-developed Darling Square, we will spill onto the beautiful path around Darling Harbour. We'll tuck back into the formerly industrial neighbourhood of Pyrmont, once known for its quarries and sugar refinery, now waterfront land home to The Star and Google. Our only elevation for the morning is up and over the Anzac Bridge, where you're treated to a bird's-eye view of our route. Our run continues along the Glebe foreshore, past a Walter Burley Griffin design, and finishing the Fish Markets with a coffee at Blackwattle Deli (or bubble tea if you prefer). This tour is water views nearly the entire way, with hidden gems of history to be discovered. You can feel free to linger and do some seafood shopping, and your tour guide will assist you in the short walk to return to Darling Harbour.
