Milsons Point to Central Station

This is wonderful walk from the harbour, through the inner west of the city to Central Station. Start by walking across the harbour bridge from Milsons Point. On the southern side of the bridge take the lift or the stairs to Cumberland Street and turn  left. After you go under the bridge, go left at the Harbour View Hotel and proceed along Lower Fort Street.
When you reach The Hero of Waterloo pub turn right into Windmill Street, and then right again into Pottinger Street. This will take you to the roundabout on Hickson Road. Cross over to the other side of the road and continue through to the Walsh Bay finger wharves. Proceed to your left to Barangaroo Reserve. You can go up to the top grassed area or walk along the pathway to the precinct of the Crown Hotel and further along to King Street Wharf with its popular restaurants, cafes and bars.
After passing the Sea Life Aquarium take the stairs or lift to Pyrmont Bridge and cross to the other side of Darling Harbour.  Cross Murray Street then go right, and after a short walk, left to the Pyrmont Bay Light Rail station. This line goes past the Star Casino, Fish Markets, Glebe and Jubilee Park, where you get off. It's a very short walk to The Tramsheds, which has been converted into a food hall and  small shopping precinct.
Walk past Jubilee Park Oval to Bicentennial Park on the shoreline of Rozelle Bay. From here follow the walkway to your right around Glebe Point and Blackwattle Bay, with fabulous views across the bay to Anzac Bridge and the city skyline.  
Cross carefully at Bridge Road to Wentworth Park Road, going past the soccer fields and Wentworth Park Greyhounds. When you reach the corner of William Henry Street and Wattle Street, walk up the hill to the Powerhouse Museum on Harris Street. Turn left at Macarthur Street, walking down to the concourse  that leads to The Goods Line to your right. You will walk past the UTS Business School Building, designed by the famous American architect Frank Gehry. Follow the old train lines to the UTS Arcade, up to Railway Colonnade Drive to the entrance of Central Station. From here you can catch a train to any part of Sydney.
This is fascinating walk through the city of about 12 kilometres.
