Tour de Hunters Hill was born out of yet another conversation about our beautiful suburb and the discoveries to be made here.
With thanks to Ward Partner's generous sponsorship and in collaboration with the City of Sydney this inaugural event has grown from a conversation to a picnic, a ride, a relax with neighbours and friends close to home.
As is always the case in our lovely neighbourhood, an idea that involves community and sharing doesn't have to be on the ground long before more and more local community groups and businesses want to join in and help it succeed.
Here is what we have so farbut watch this space, we expect it to grow!
