Sydney, Australia is the state capital of New South Wales and the most populous city in Oceania. Located on Australia’s east coast, the metropolis surrounds the world’s largest natural harbor, and sprawls towards the Blue Mountains to the west. Sydney‘s countless coves, good weather, and numerous beaches along the coast provide great running opportunities. Additionally, between the Opera House, Harbor Bridge, the Central Business District skyscrapers, lighthouses and ferries there is no shortage of places to explore! We have put together a great combination of routes, from a tourist tour of Sydney to iconic runs along the city’s famous beaches and gorgeous parks — many of them near main business and tourist hotels.
Driving is the local’s preferred method of getting around the city. During rush hour, there are up to 350,000 cars on Sydney’s roads. If you would rather use public transit, there is a comprehensive bus and train system. Additionally, NightRide is a nightly bus service that operate between midnight and 5am, replacing trains for most of this period.
