Instead of posting the typical couple, chocolate and overpriced Valentine’s ideas that everyone else would be writing about, we’re encouraging you to try something different. How about taking the day off from work, or if you’re visiting Sydney, quit the standard sightseeing attractions, and get lost! Literally, we want you to take a breather and spend all day falling back in love with your heart. It demands attention, recognition and is craving to be strengthened. So this blog post is all about hiking and walking off the beaten trails. The exercise will do you good, the alternative sights will be loved by your eyes and your body will be blowing adrenaline kisses. Remember to tweet us pictures during your adventure or tag Cremorne Point Manor with @’s through the day.
Sydney is a stunning city and alongside taking the ferry to absorb the city by water, the famous coastlines are also incredible. Here are a few favourites of ours:
The Bondi to Coogee Coastal Walk will take you through parks and beaches. The trail is around 6km and follows the city’s eastern suburbs. You can take your time strolling or pick up the pace and maybe complete it in under an hour.
If you’re itching to see more of the Harbour, we’ve got you covered. Take the two step trail from Wooloomooloo (incredible name, right?) to Circular Quay. You’ll venture through Mrs Macquaries Point and the Botanic Garden so remember to check both out during a pit stop. The garden’s over 200 years old so while you’re there continue the walking through the Calyx, with 18,000 plants. Remember to ask about the Sweet Addiction, botanic story of chocolate, exhibition.
For anyone who’s up for a near full day out of hiking, the Garie Beach Coast Track route is going to be your best bet. Its 26km long and you can either trail it yourself or take a Sydney Coast Walk guided tour. Maybe you’ll also consider spend the night there, camping. Star gazing through the night – could the 14th February be any more romantic than this?
Finally, if you’re more of the adventurous type, how about heading to the Royal National Park? With 30km of beautiful coastline views, you can grab a picnic on the way and enjoy the lagoon and beaches. Locals are known for setting up all-star BBQ’s in this area so don’t be surprised to see loved up parties grilling away.
Cupid’s throwing his exercise arrow your way so make the most of the 14th with a different heart-healthy objective, or comment which other trails you’ll be heading down.
