Sydney is blessed with many 50m Olympic swimming pools. There are two close by the hotel. There is an indoor one up Williams St across the road from Hyde Park called the Aquatic and Fitness Centre and during the summer months an outdoor pool in Woolloomooloo called The Andrew (Boy) Charlton Pool and is my all time favorite. To get there, use the directions above for getting to the Gardens and it is on the right when heading to Mrs Macqauries Point.
Both pools are set up for lane swimming.
Visit Toby’s Estate café on the way back to the hotel after your swim.
We have 2 runs from the hotel. The first is over to the gardens and around its tracks, round the Opera House, around Mrs Macqauries Point and back to the hotel.
The second run is to Darling Point and back. From the hotel turn left along Victoria St and right at Hughes St, cross Macleay St and down Greenknowe Av, turn right down Holdsworth Ave and take the steps down to Rushcutters Bay and all the way round to the end of Rushcutters Bay. If you feel like some hill work head up Loftus St (very apt name!) and run around Darling Point and back down to Rushcutters Bay and back to the Hotel the way you came.
