No shortage of marathons to be found, you can take in the big cities covering the Melbourne Marathon or Sydney Running Fest. Feel the ocean breeze with the Newcastle Running Festival, or celebrate the founders of this beautiful nation by taking on the Convicts and Wenches Ultra Marathon. Not afraid to go a little “out there”, there are winery tours and trail runs galore.
