5km Walk 

The Walk starts at 10am at Government House, Sydney. As we come out of Government House we turn right to cross and walk down Macquarie Street. At the bottom of Macquarie Street we take a left hand turn just before the roundabout and head towards Circular Quay. We walk along the Circular Quay pathway past the ferry terminals and the MCA turning left into Argyle Street, The Rocks.  Up Argyle Street about 400m, we turn left onto Cambridge Lane, turn right and up two small flights of stairs onto Cumberland Street. Cross Cumberland Street at pedestrian crossing and head north toward Harbour Bridge steps. Walk up stair onto the  Sydney Harbour Bridge pedestrian path and across the bridge (not over the arches!) to the Milsons Point steps, don't go down steps, turn around and walk back south over Bridge. We return walking along the Cahill Expressway footpath back to Government House and the Finish line to enjoy the Wellness Festival.
