Harbour Bridge - Mrs. Macquarie's Chair - Opera House
This offers the best views of Sydney Harbour, including the Opera House. A good 12km out and back starts under the Harbour Bridge (city side) following the water around Circular Quay, Opera House, and then around the Botanical Gardens before reaching the turn around point at Mrs. Maquarie's Chair. An iconic Sydney run, it's hard to find a more stunning route anywhere in the world.

What Others Are Saying
Around the Opera House and Mrs. Macquarie's Chair is ridiculously popular with city workers blowing steam during lunch. I use the 1km stretch around Farm Cove, separated by two stones gates for group interval training. It's flat, easy to measure, and has great views.
Tick off all the Sydney landmarks in one run.
For the tourist nothing beats stretching your legs and running over the harbour bridge with a loop around Mrs Macquarie's chair and the opera house.
