Pram-friendly walks in Sydney
Fitting in a workout with a bub in tow is no mean feat. If you’re looking for a way to get active that doesn’t require hiring a baby sitter, phone a friend (or go it alone) for a walk along one of these top, pram-friendly Sydney walks. Bask in the sunshine while you get your cardio fix, these tracks guarantee some beautiful sights without the inclines (or more than a few stairs) for easy pram pushing.
Cremorne Point Foreshore
This pathed walk takes in some spectacular views of the harbour with uninterrupted glimpses of the Harbour Bridge and Opera House. The walk will take you past MacCallum Pool, all the way around through Mosmans Bay and back to your starting point.
Best time to go: Early morning or mid-afternoon
This popular walk loops around the Iron Cove and on a sunny day the whole walk is bathed in sunshine (don’t forget a hat!) It’s pathed from start to finish and there are two playgrounds on the way. With ample parking at Leichardt park, Drummoyne Swimming Pool and King George Park, this one is a crowd favourite.
Best time to go: Early morning to avoid the crowds or on a weekday.
Starting out at Bicentennial Park, Rozelle, follow the path to Sydney Secondary College in Glebe then follow the streets back to the Fish Market. From here either return by the same route or follow Saunders road up to the Anzac Bridge and follow the path back to your starting position. Don’t forget to grab some fresh fish while you’re at the markets.
Best time to go: 9-5pm to avoid heavy traffic
Harbour Bridge to Botanic Gardens
This is a long one so if you’re not up for a big walk turn around at the Rocks. Start at Kirribilli station and head up the stairs onto the bridge walk. You might need to ask a friend (or a friendly passerby) for a hand up the stairs but once you’re onto the bridge the walk is stair-free. Once you’ve crossed the bridge take the lift down and walk down through the Rocks, around Circular Quay and into the Botanic Gardens before returning back the way you came.
Best time to go: After 9am on a weekday or early on a weekend morning.
Bicentennial Park Homebush
The park has around a dozen pram-friendly walks that zigzag through trees, around playgrounds and up some slight inclines (to get those legs burning, just a little). The Badu Mangrove loop goes along a boardwalk, it takes you through wetlands and it’s great for a leisurely stroll. Just make sure you’re armed with insect repellent to ward off mozzies.
Best time to go: After 10am
