Itinerary

En Route

Today you’re going to see some of the best sights that this beautiful harbour city has to offer. Your Driver Guide will provide expert commentary as you travel past famous suburbs, each with its own unique streetscape and intriguing history.

Milsons Point

On the lower North Shore is the picturesque Milsons Point. The streets are lined with beautiful homes, churches and schools, many built in the late 1800s. With its incredible views of Sydney Harbour and the Opera House, and an abundance of restaurants, cafés and boutique shops, Milsons Point is a popular destination for locals and visitors.

North Head Lookout

The heath-covered clifftops at North Head reveal uninterrupted Pacific Ocean views and a spectacular panorama of the harbour and Sydney skyline.

Manly Beach

With its relaxed, outdoor lifestyle, Manly is a great place to take some time out to wander along the golden sandy beaches that stretch from Queenscliff up to the North Steyne Beach to Manly Beach. You might also like to treat yourself to morning tea in one of the many cafés (own expense).

Lunch Break

Enjoy a 2 hour lunch break at Darling Harbour prior to returning to the coach for your afternoon portion of the tour or choose to upgrade to include a harbour lunch cruise.

Meet your driver at 2.00pm at Lime Street, King St Wharf to continue on the afternoon tour.

The Rocks

Situated at the very base of the Harbour Bridge, the Rocks is a lively and popular spot brimming with boutique stores, art galleries and world-class restaurants. Long ago the area was home to the indigenous Gadigal people. European settlers claimed the land in 1788 and the colour and character of their lifestyle can be felt as you wander through the historic buildings.

Harbour Bridge

From the Rocks you’ll get a stunning view of the Sydney Harbour Bridge, one of the largest steel arch bridges in the world. Designed in 1924 to connect the northern and southern shores of this growing city, the Harbour Bridge opened in 1932 and is one of the city’s most well known and photographed icons.

After the morning portion of your tour, you’ll have a two-hour break to purchase lunch, and perhaps take a stroll around spectacular Circular Quay before your afternoon tour to Bondi.

Mrs. Macquarie’s Chair

Mrs. Macquarie’s Chair sits high on the peninsula known as Mrs. Macquarie’s Point and is an exposed sandstone rock that was hand-carved into a bench by convicts in 1810. It is said that Mrs. Macquarie, the wife of the then New South Wales Governor, was known to visit the area to take in the views.

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 Australia. This World Heritage listed building is considered a masterpiece of late modern architecture and a world class performing arts venue.

The Gap

Again, have your camera ready. You’re now heading to the entrance of Sydney Harbour, known as the Gap. A dramatic ocean cliff on the eastern coast of Sydney, the Gap will give you breathtaking views of the New South Wales coastline.

Bondi Beach

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.
