It is not a race and everyone is a winner. You can start at any of the seven event Villages and walk clockwise around as much or little of the 28km closed loop circuit as you like. As part of the offerings for the Cancer Council NSW Seven Bridges Walk, there will be food, music and activities at each of the seven Villages.

If you are attempting to complete the entire course, we strongly recommend that you start prior to 11am in order to finish before the 4.30pm course and Village closures.

Course

The Cancer Council NSW Seven Bridges Walk will be an experience celebrating walking; it's not a race and everyone will be a winner. The course is a 28km closed loop circuit that travels clockwise around Sydney Harbour, highlighting many of the magnificent views around the harbour.

The course and facilities will be open from 7.30am - 4.30pm on event day.

Participants can register and start at any Village, where they can pick up their Event Passport which includes a course map and official event wristband.  There will be water stations at each Village for participants to fill up their own water bottles.

To assist Cancer Council NSW in this event we are encouraging people to donate online or on event day at any of the seven Villages.

Around the course participants will use existing pathways and will therefore need to abide by normal road rules.

No special event clearways or road closures will be in place.

All participants walk in a clockwise direction only, this is to ease congestion and make the walk safer for all.

A map will be provided on the day in your Event Passport.

There are three points on the course where the course splits and you have to choose which option you would like to walk:

  1. Decision point at Iron Cove Bridge

    Choice of either walking the path underneath both bridges, which leads (via stairs) to the historic Iron Cove Bridge. You will then join the normal route on the other side of the bridge on Victoria Road (Canada Bay).
    Or you can use the ramp leading to the newer Iron Cove Bridge (accessible for prams & wheelchairs) and join the normal route on the other side of the bridge on Victoria Road (Canada Bay).

  2. Decision point at Riverview Street/ Tambourine Bay Road, Riverview

    Choice of either taking the bushwalk track through Tambourine Bay Reserve (mobility restricted) OR to continue along the footpath via Flaumont Ave and Carranya Rd to Warraroon Rd (accessible). The bush track is approximately 300m longer.

  3. Decision point at Lane Cove Village

    Choice of either taking the bushwalk track through Gore Creek Reserve (mobility restricted) OR continue along the footpath by crossing Northwood Rd onto River Rd, following course signs to re-join with the bushwalk route at Gore St (accessible). Both routes are approximately the same distance.

There are a number of different ways of going through some of the areas along the course that may be slightly shorter than the mapped Seven Bridges Walk Route, however the course has been identified this way to provide a more enjoyable and where possible, pedestrian friendly navigation through these areas.

Villages

There will be seven Villages around the course that participants must pass through to complete the circle walk. Each of the Villages will provide information, registration, first aid and toilets plus food, refreshments and entertainment.

The locations for the Villages are clearly marked on the course map and are found at:

  1. Milsons Point Village - Burton Street, Corner of Alfred Street and Burton Street,
  2. Barangaroo Village - Nawi Park, Hickson Road, Barangaroo
  3. Pyrmont Village - Pyrmont Bay Park, Pirrama Rd, opposite The Star
  4. Rozelle Village - King George Park, Manning Street, near Rozelle Hospital
  5. Hunters Hill Village - Hunters Hill Scout Hall, Durham Street, near the Church Street overpass on Burns Bay Road
  6. Lane Cove Village - Blaxlands Corner - Central Park, William Edward Street and Kenneth Street

Toilet facilities in between villages are marked on the course map.
