How are you exercising lately struggling to put your joggers on?  Sometimes it is hard to be motivated and with cooler days and less daylight hours it is becoming more difficult. We all know how important it is to be healthy and happy this includes exercising and eating a well-balanced diet.  Now more than ever it is essential to have a good attitude to keeping our minds and body strong and fit. The great advantage about living in the beautiful city of Sydney is our wonderful Sydney Harbour and what healthier way to exercise then around the foreshore enjoying the wonderful views.

Royal Botanic Gardens

Enjoy a walk around The Royal Botanic Gardens Sydney an area of 30 hectares there is something for every age group to see. You may wish to do a self-guiding walk or there are daily walking tours available or perhaps a delightful afternoon walk with someone special. During your scenic walk you will be exercising and with the added bonus of also seeing many beautiful plants along the way.

Mrs Macquarie’s Chair

If you have time a 12km walk starts under the Harbour Bridge around Circular Quay, Opera House and around the Botanic Gardens before reaching Mrs Macquarie’s Chair. This will guarantee you are getting a good exercise workout and once you are there you can rest and admire the wonderful Harbour views with the private boats and yachts sailing past.  You can snap a panoramic image of the Opera House, skyline and Sydney Harbour Bridge.  Mrs Macquarie’s Chair is the perfect place for photographs and the walk is worth the effort.

Hermitage Foreshore Track

One of Sydney’s great coastal walks is Hermitage Foreshore Track offering an easy 1.8km walk you will be exercising while being entertained with stunning views. Along the way you will see Shark Island, The Sydney Harbour Bridge and the Grounds of Strickland House. Plenty of opportunities to have a picnic or there is a café at Nielsen Park that offers coffee, lunch and snacks all are available if you need to have rest before continuing your walk.

Sydney Harbour Bridge

The two most famous Sydney landmarks around the world are the Sydney Opera House and The Sydney Harbour Bridge.  You can book and pay to climb the Harbour Bridge (that will definitely get your heart pumping) where you will have a great view up and down the coast of Port Jackson and also see The Sydney Opera House. However there is also another option which is completely free and that is walking across the Harbour Bridge.  The Bridge walk takes 20 minutes one way unless you stop to take photos then it may be longer! You will see The Rocks and Fort Denison. Another choice other than walking you can cycle across the bridge which is a wonderful way to exercise.

Hidden beaches

Around the Sydney Harbour are countless hidden and secluded beaches, Balmoral Beach in Mosman, Nielsons Park in Vaucluse, Camp Cove, and Milk Beach. All these incredible beaches are beautiful secluded and hidden gems in summer or during cooler months you can still walk along the beach making sure to get exercise for the body and mind. If you would like to spend time at these beaches and are finding them busy perhaps hiring a luxurious yacht would guarantee you complete access to these stunning beaches.
