Bondi Beach & Sydney Sights
Your Driver Guide will provide expert commentary as you weave through the city streets to key landmarks.
At the very base of the Harbour Bridge is the historic Rocks district. Featuring heritage-listed buildings and streetscapes, The Rocks is popular for its markets, cafés, boutique shops and spectacular harbour views. The area was inhabited by the indigenous Gadigal people, before the first European settlers claimed the land in 1788. Your Driver Guide will share stories, both tall and true, of the characters and events that shaped this port community.
Mrs. Macquarie's Chair
High on the peninsula known as Mrs. Macquarie’s Point, the lookout was named after Mrs. Macquarie, the wife of a New South Wales Governor, known to visit the area in the early 1800s. From her convictbuilt sandstone ‘chair’, enjoy birds-eye views of the Sydney Opera House, a masterpiece of modern architecture and a world class arts venue.
Sydney Opera House
From Mrs. Macquarie’s Chair you’ll get another birds-eye view of the Sydney Opera House, arguably the most recognisable icon in the world. This World Heritage listed building is considered a masterpiece of late modern architecture and a world class performing arts venue.
Have your camera ready! You’re now heading to the entrance of Sydney Harbour, known as the Gap. A dramatic ocean cliff on the coast, the Gap will give you breathtaking views of the coastline.
Australians are renowned for their relaxed and outdoor lifestyle and Bondi Beach is a prime example of this. One of the most famous beaches in the world, it is a captivating location brimming with lifeguards, surfers and tanned beach-goers. You can wander along the shoreline and dip your toes into the cool ocean or treat yourself to afternoon tea (own expense) from one of the many cosmopolitan cafés and restaurants.

My family and I were in Sydney for this weekend just gone, and decided on taking one of your "City Sights Tours" as it was our first time in Sydney. All I can say is - WOW! We had a fantastic time!
