Hi guys, so far found good LDP spots at bondi beach, centennial park. But both pavement smoothness is just mediocre.

Was wondering if there are other decent spots for LDP-ing, I was thinking botanic gardens, anyone know?

Good question. Botanic Gardens will get you a fine from the rangers - they're nasty there.

If you're willing to travel out west, the M7 cycleway gives you some seriously long kilometres. Anywhere else?

Thanks alot for the suggestion, unfortunately M7 is way too far out. So dont even try to skate at botanical gardens? i c... thx

There is a iphone app that say skate spots, i don't have it my mate does and we haven't checked any of the spots out but it seems legit.

are you after LDpush? or LDpump? i use a bike path in ryde that goes roughly 5kms 1 way..a good part flats,and some ups and downs..this track is good for pushing..you could pump the flats though if that's your thing but my setup is for pushing..another is lansdowne park cycleway towards villawood suburb..i'm not quite sure of the address..its a 1 way cycleway circuit of decent length,maybe 15-20mins to do a full circuit on a longboard..mostly flat and slight gradual ups and downs with 1 decent downhill part of roughly 500-600metres..across lansdowne park is also a good park for pushing..or maybe pumping..

LDP as in long distance pumping, and I live in bondi beach, so the bondi beach is already pretty decent (just too short and pavement is average). Also, centennial is good in terms of distance, but the pavement is just average. Looking for spots around near bondi.

"Average" is being far too kind. Cpark has the worst surface in the Eastern Suburbs.

Plenty of bike paths around the CBD and out East now thanks to Clover Moore. Given them a try? Be warned, though, the cyclists can be pretty facist. I know people who've copped an elbow to the face just for skating on the paths.

Bay Run is probably worth a shot too:

You're going to have to leave the East some time if you're serious about looking for good LDP spots.

Skateboards are allowed on the separated cycleways, although some cyclists may not know that, or agree with it.

Sydney Park is a good spot - heaps of paths with mellow rolling gradients. Accessible by bus, or train (St Peters station).

Bondi is a pretty bad place for LDP as it's all hills.
If you wanted to travel ,Wollongong has a great bike path that runs along the coast from Wonona to the steel works. It's mostly flat and a great surface and would have to be at least 15km long. 

Thanks for all the suggestions, but it all seems too far away, i dont like going through the trouble of getting to a place, i just like pumping :)

I checked on google maps, what do you guys think about this, someone said botanical gardens you will get ticketed by rangers, so does that mean no longboarding allowed?

This seems like the BEST possible views and its long enough for LDP, just going back and forth will do the trick.

BTW- im planning to goto the 6:30 railway tonight, I assume its mostly city skating in a large group (safety in numbers). That sounds cool.

There's a cycle way that goes from brighton le sands all the way down to sans souci

Pretty much all flat and varied pavements.

Brighton to sans souci is mainly paved with bricks.
Takes a toll on your legs.
I live close to Brighton and usually go from the airport lighthouse to sans souci and back on cool summer days.
