Walking is a great way to get your low to moderate cardio in. Just the idea of going outdoors in the fresh air and enjoying the view, the smells and the amazing wildlife you may see
Around Sydney we have so many places to explore from Otford to Bundeena in the South to Bobbin Head and Palm Beach Lighthouse in the north. There are National Parks, coastal paths and local bush areas all over the metropolitan area.
Walking home from the city or a part of your daily commute is a great way to end the stressful day. Instead of sitting in the terrible Sydney traffic getting frustrated in your car or jam packed on a train or bus it's very satisfying to head home on foot and can sometimes be quicker. You don't need to stay on the main roads, in fact the back streets and quiet roads are nice to head down and discover your neighbourhood.
You have probably heard of people talking about these great popular walks making them sound truly spectacular - well they are. Set aside a Sunday once a month and find a walk to do. It really doesn't take much to get organised and with most of them in quite urban locations you won't be far form a latte and lunch
All you need is a small backpack with the basics
Water bottle and snacks
Sunscreen and Hat
Money and opal card
