Top Sydney Walks For Mums and Bubs

20 Perfect Walks For Mums With Bubs In Prams.

Ladies, I know you love wearing active wear and getting out for a walk, or a run, with your pram. It's the easiest, cheapest way to exercise on a daily basis, when you have little ones constantly in tow.

Sydney has some of the most spectacular walks of all the capital cities, and most are geared towards ease of access for pedestrians and cyclists. I'm not talking strenuous off-road walks, but your friendly neighbourhood paths, many of which have scenic views of the harbour, the river, your local public reserve or parklands.

Sydney Mums Group has done its research and put together a list of 20 of the most popular walks in Sydney. Whether you choose to complete the whole track, or just part of it, it's a great way to build your cardio fitness, and get out of the house with bub, when you have both been going stir crazy. And why not invite a mumma friend and her bub, for a stroll and a chat? She'll no doubt appreciate the invite.

If you'd like more information about any of the walks below, they are hyperlinked, so just click.

Like the look of any of these wonderful walking trails? Already have a favourite place to walk with bub? Or, are you thinking, "Hey, they've completely missed my neck of the woods!"

If it's the latter, we'd love to hear from you, so we can build this list to represent all of Sydney. We're looking for easy walks with prams, on well-paved paths, in locations that are convenient for suburban and city mums, rather than remote bush walks. That's another list entirely...
