Reserve a Sydney hostel for the Seven Bridges Walk
Fitness fanatics may like to maintain their shape during a stay in Australia.

If so, then booking a hostel in Sydney for the Seven Bridges Walk could be ideal preparation for someone who is going travelling down under later this year.

People on holiday may even like to do a good turn for a good cause by competing in the race, which is in its fifth year.

The Heart Foundation noted that people can improve their cardiac health by taking part and there is a wide variety of different constructions to walk over throughout the 25km.

Participants will be able to experience the iconic Sydney Harbour Bridge at first hand, as well as the Iron Cove, Gladesville and ANZAC bridges.

But those who get out of breath halfway round can simply walk back to their Sydney hostel as completing the circuit is not a necessity.

Any money which is raised on the day - it takes place on Sunday October 31st - will be split between the Heart Foundation, Cancer Council NSW, Diabetes Australia and beyondblue.

And if it is anything like last year's free event then this time round could be a success.

From 2006 to 2008 there were 24,000 participants which saw more than $100,000 (£57,593) collected for four charities.

Moreover, while staying at a cheap hostel in Sydney it might also be worth visiting other famous features of the area, such as the Sydney Opera House and Taronga Zoo which can be accessed by ferry from the city.
