  • Parramatta Station 60 Station St E Parramatta, NSW, 2150 Australia (map)

Enjoy a cycle along the river from Parramatta through Meadowbank, Rhodes and Olympic Park.

From Parramatta Station, this is a circuit ride of about 30 km on mostly shared pathway. We travel the Parramatta Valley Cycleway to Meadowbank, then cross to Rhodes and Wentworth Point, before returning to Parramatta via Olympic Park and the Duck River Cycleway below the M4 Motorway.

Travel is mostly on easy, enjoyable, shared pathway, however there are a few sections of on-road travel and some gentle hills and descents to work those legs.

We’ll visit a cafe at Wentworth Point before cycling back to Parramatta.
