Iron Cove is a bay on the Parramatta River, west of Sydney. It has a great walking trail that forms a loop around Iron Cove, taking in beaches, mangroves, beautiful historical buildings and of course the harbour.
The Iron Cove run is the Inner West’s favourite early morning route. Many runners start wherever they like and follow the crowds on the flat, fast loop with stunning views of the cove. As the loop does not deviate more than 20m from the water, the views are incredible.
Canada Bay is under 10km from the centre of Sydney. And is predominately a residential area but also has significant commercial and industrial areas. There are many parks, reserves and foreshores to explore.
The major features of Canada Bay include the Parramatta River, Birkenhead Point & Rhodes Shopping Centres, and Concord Golf Club.
