What You'll Get
Welcome to Sydney, one of the most vibrant and panoramic cities in the world. Your sightseeing tour starts with pickup at your hotel, where you'll meet your guide for your introduction to the best the city has to offer.
Your first destination is the historic Rocks precinct, the birthplace of Sydney, home to convict-built cottages, pubs, and the first church in Australia. Then head east to the Royal Botanic Gardens, passing by Macquarie Street, named after the fifth Governor of New South Wales, Lachlan Macquarie. Here you will see Australia’s first Parliament House, the Mint, Hyde Park Barracks, and St Mary’s Cathedral. Continue to Mrs Macquarie’s Chair situated on the water’s edge, where you can take a walking tour of the harborfront with views of Sydney Harbour Bridge and the Sydney Opera House.
Return to your tour vehicle to continue through Woolloomooloo, Kings Cross, and into Rushcutters Bay, where you'll stop for lunch at the Cruising Yacht Club of Australia, the country’s premier yacht club and home to what is considered yachting’s ‘Everest’—the Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race.
After lunch, head through Darling Point, one of Sydney’s most affluent suburbs, and see some of the city's most sought-after addresses. Pass by Double Bay, Rose Bay, Vaucluse, and Watsons Bay before traveling along the coastline to Sydney’s most famous stretch of sand, Bondi Beach. Here you have some time to soak up the atmosphere of this coastal hotspot; stroll down the esplanade with the locals, and maybe enjoy an ice cream (own expense) before re-boarding your vehicle. Return to the city via vibrant Oxford Street and the suburb of Paddington, a boutique shopping precinct known for the charming Georgian and Victorian architecture of its homes.
