Many Sydney siders love to walk. Waling by the water is harmonious and relaxing. On this, where is the best riverside walk in Sydney?

Parramatta River. So peaceful down there. You're fairly away from busy Victoria Road. It is great to sit down and enjoy a sandwich along the water, right near the ferry wharf.
There are dozens of places to walk along the Hawksbury-Nepean, in Penrith, Emu Plains, Richmond and Windsor. Some of it will follow well marked paths in parks along the water, while the more adventurous can find bush tracks that take you to secluded spots.
Cooks River around Strathfield South is lovely for a quiet walk.
Gotta be Parramatta River! There's tons of picnic spots, wildlife (love watching the flying foxes sleeping in their trees) and when it all gets a bit too tiring, you're not that far from the main drag where you can grab a cold drink.
Cooks River is an excellent place to walk. The best walking area starts from Canterbury Road in Canterbury and heads east along the river. You can also head west but I less impressed with that part of the track.

There is an amazing bushwalking through the Lane Cove National Park along Lane Cove River. There are several section that you can visit but they are all part of the Great North Walk that if you follow them you will end up in Newcastle. My favourite section is in North Epping. This follows a small creek, but in Lane Cove it is more of a river. We normally hire rowing boats rather than walk there.

These are by and far the two best river walks in the Sydney area though complete different in nature.
