There’s a fabulous charity run every winter from Hyde Park to Bondi Beach on streets, waterfront, and cliffs. It’s one of the world’s most popular road races, and the 14-km course is so good, it’s worth doing year-round. People dress in crazy costumes and do stunts to raise awareness for causes and surf lifesaving. You can find a map on the race’s website. The big hill about three quarters of the way to Bondi is called Heartbreak Hill, and it’s the undoing of many unsuspecting runners’ lead, so pace yourself. The good news is once you’re over that, it’s basically downhill to Bondi. Ocean and cliff views will distract you all the way to the beach.
You can walk around and enjoy the parks layout, sculptures, water features or visit the Memorial Barracks Museum.

“Darling Harbour is a harbour adjacent to the city centre of Sydney, New South Wales, Australia that is made up of a large recreational and pedestrian precinct that is situated on western outskirts of the Sydney central business district. Originally named Long Cove, the locality extends northwards from Chinatown, along both sides of Cockle Bay to King Street Wharf 3 on the east, and to the suburb of Pyrmont on the west. Cockle Bay is just one of the waterways that makes up Darling Harbour, which opens north into the much larger Port Jackson. ”
