Scootering Around Darling Harbour!
Posted 3rd February 2020. Category: General.
The Darling Harbour waterfront is one of the most beautiful places to ride around in Sydney, with wide-open footpaths stretching far along the waterfront directly next to Sydney city!
eScootering has also become the fastest mode of inner-city transport! There is no doubt electric scooters are revolutionising the way people get around a city environment. For years inner-city areas have been plagued by road congestion and unreliable public transport. As we enter a new decade, we will see the rise in electric scooter uptake and infrastructure to support it.
Unfortunately, during our ride, the bushfires around the NSW region had affected the weather and sky. Sydney is usually known for clean air and a great bright blue sky most days of the year, yet, unfortunately, that was not the case today.
The video features the Ninebot Max Scooter, with an incredible range of 60km. Going from Pyrmont to Circular Quay and then back to Pyrmont only used about 20% of the battery!
The Ninebot Max is one of the more comfortable scooters to use around the city, with a large deck, soft air tyres and plenty of range, riding it around in this environment was such a joy.

The Complete Route:
The ride began on Harris Street in Pyrmont, using the overpass to fast-track to Darling Harbour, then along the pier and over to the Pyrmont Bay Bridge. Once across the bridge, it was a smooth ride along through the Barangaroo promenade and then under the Sydney Harbour Bridge and around the corner through Circular Quay - where it was quite busy - but nevertheless an easy ride. Going one lap around the Opera House with a great view of the city, and then ending up in the Botanical Gardens was a magical experience! At this point, turning back and heading along Hyde Park and back to Pyrmont directly! This whole lap of the city, with a few stops, took about 30 minutes on the Ninebot Max.

WalkSmart recommends that you check your local state laws and regulations in relation to using electric scooters in public locations, roads and footpaths. Laws vary state by state and therefore may limit use to private locations only. Each local body is reviewing public electric scooter use, so we expect it to be regulated, but legal in all states within the short term. Feel free to contact WalkSmart if you have any further queries.
