Sydney is full of incredibly beautiful ‘must see’ sights and landmarks that are scattered across this immense harbour city. On this tour you will see them all. Nestled below the Sydney Harbour Bridge, the area known as ‘The Rocks’ is the birthplace of European settlement in Australia. We visit the stunning Royal Botanic gardens with the superb views of the Opera House and Harbour Bridge, pass by the Naval base of Wooloomooloo and the party area of Kings Cross before delving into further into the exclsuive Eastern Suburbs (home to the cities rich and famous) & reaching the South Head at Watson's Bay.
Onto Bondi, without a doubt Sydney’s and Australia’s most famous beach. Bondi is a lively neighbourhood centred around the famous beach. Enjoy some free time to grab a coffee or take a quick swim (sea water temperature raises up to 26 degrees Celsius in Feburay & March) or walk along the shore feeling the sand between your toes as the water rushes over your feet. Stopping for a walk & a photo at Darling harbour, we cross to the North side of the Harbour and go to see the beauty of Middle Harbour & the Northern Beaches. Elegant homes perched on hillsides over-look yachts moored out front. A little slice of paradise, home to picturesque lagoons and many of Sydney’s most beautiful & popular beaches, the area deserves a whole day unto itself to truly see it all. We will see Narrabeen, Collaroy, Dee Why & Freshwater (birthplace of Australian surfing), the ever popular Manly and enjoy a restaurant lunch. From the North Head at Manly we take in the remarkable view of the Harbour. See the cliffs of the South Head and the entrance from the Pacific Ocean known as the ‘Gap’ with the city skyline off in the distance.
