Another good route just south of the center of Sydney is to create your own run incorporating Victoria Park and the University of Sydney. Victoria Park features ~2 km of pleasant paved and gravel paths, a lake, and a public pool. It spills over to the University of Sydney, which was built in 1850 and features some spectacular historic buildings. Enjoy running around the paths of the neo-gothic sandstone quad!
We haven’t mapped a specific route here, but suggest you create your own 3-5 km run in this area, even adding on with some pleasant area streets, Camperdown Park, and O’Dea Preserve.
