This small group tour is a great way to explore a little beyond Sydney. West of Sydney lies the World Heritage Blue Mountains national park. Well worth the trip. Includes Featherdale Wildlife Park. 10-11 hour duration.
Enjoy unique aspects of Sydney life as we explore by car and on foot, with plenty of time for photographs. Our journey usually begins with a drive down Macquarie Street to get a sense of how the history of Sydney has changed since its days of early settlement. We enter the Royal Botanic Gardensprecinct where we take a short stroll to see some lovely views. From here you can capture that perfect photo of the Sydney Opera House and the Sydney Harbour Bridge. Then we stroll down to Mrs Macquarie’s Chair for a little bit of history right on our harbour foreshore.We will drive through lively Woolloomooloo and Kings Cross before we leisurely make our way through the beautiful Eastern Suburbs of Sydney. You will see how each suburb is a small village in its own right as we introduce you to Double Bay, Rose Bay, Parsley Bay or Nielson Park, Vaucluse and Watson’s Bay. We explore Sydney’s East by car and on foot taking in some beautiful secluded bays in the area where big tourist buses do not visit. We’ll get to see where Sydney siders hang out!We stop at a beautiful harbourside park to provide you with a special morning tea made up of Aussie snacks and, of course, a taste of Vegemite!We take you to an area called The Gap and show you the brilliant cliffs and waters of the Pacific Ocean.
