Sydney Harbourside Walks
Stroller-friendly 5km walk right along Circular Quay and into the Botanic Gardens.
A detailed guide on the best way to walk with Harbour Bridge when you have kids and even a stroller with you.
Stroller-friendly and with wonderful views over the city and the sparkling Harbour. Excellent spot for picnics near the lovely harbour pool too.
This is a walk for the sure-footed who can negotiate steps and even a ladder, well worth it for the great views.

Sydney Coastal Walks
A lovey walk up over Trenerry reserve and along the fabulous boardwalk. You’ll feel miles away from civilisation.
Not for very little kids as the bush track goes alongside tall cliffs, but a really terrific walk for families with older children.
This is not a walk for complete beginners but excellent for families who have a few walks under their belt and enjoy a new challenge. It’s very beautiful and has many areas of interest as well as lovely beaches.
A lovely walk along the harbour on a smooth and undulating path. Read all about it and find a map here.
Stroll all the way from Queenscliff to Shelly Beach or start anywhere along the way. Great views, lovely cafes and a totally smooth path. Read all the info you need here.
Sydney Bush Walks With Kids
There are lovely walks through the bush at this wildlife park to the north of Sydney.
There are short and longer walks, most not suitable for strollers, in this Harbourside jewel, plus historical buildings and other interesting buildings nearby.
A very short but pretty walk around this Harbour reserve comes with the bonus of Aboriginal carvings, plus a terrific playground.
Check out this post to find out about the boardwalks and the bush walks, plus a lovely playground too. Find the post here.
All sorts of options here for short walks with children, plus a cafe and the ropes course too. Check out Cumberland State Forest info here.
Terrific for beginner bush walkers with little legs, this is an easy short circuit walk. All the details you need are here.
Nestled in suburbia, just a 10 – 15 minute walk from the road is a pretty waterfall, with longer walks for older kids too. Read all about Irrawong Waterfall walk here.
Enjoy the shorter and longer walks, suitable for strollers in this Northern Suburbs bush oasis. Find the details here.
Manly Dam has several enjoyable walks of different lengths, great spots to picnic and you can even swim. Read about Manly Dam here.

Lovely walk through wetlands with lots of birds to spot. Good for strollers and little kids too.
Sydney Urban Park Walks
Walk around Grand Drive on a sealed walking path, excellent for strollers. It’s 3.8km long and takes an hour if you go quickly, but MUCH longer if you have children walking with you!
There’s plenty to see as you walk around Parramatta Park and good places to stop too. Check out the post here.
Lovely art works to see and a fab playground on this short walk in Parramatta. Read all about it here.
Nice smooth paths and there is always something to see at the regatta centre plus options for all sorts of watery fun. Read all about it here.
