See Sydney from a local’s perspective on a private guided walking tour of its harbor-side beaches and eastern suburbs. Breathe in the ocean air as you take a private boat across the water to Rose Bay, where you’ll set out to see a seldom-explored side of the city. Discover Parsley Bay, Nielsen Park and the Hermitage Foreshore track, which grants stunning views of the Sydney Opera House and Sydney Harbour Bridge across the water. End the walk with a much-deserved lunch to be enjoyed in Watsons Bay.
What You'll Get
Begin discovering a less-explored side of Sydney from your hotel, where you meet your guide. You'll then board a private boat to cross to Rose Bay. As you’re carried over the water, catch a glimpse of Shark Island—named for its fin-shaped outline—and Sydney landmarks. Arrive at Rose Bay where you will enjoy a delicious morning tea snack and begin your guided tour of the harbor foreshore and surrounding areas that make up Sydney Harbour National Park.
Leading your private group is a local guide who is well-versed in the area. On your easy walk, meander down the Hermitage Track to Watsons Bay as your guide shares insider tips about the area. The path affords views of Sydney Harbour Bridge and the Sydney Opera House across the harbor. Snap gorgeous photos and experience these iconic sights from an entirely new perspective.
The Hermitage Track also holds its own appeal. Admire the grounds of Strickland House, climb ancient toppled tree trunks, and wind past native flora. Along the way, stop at Parsley Bay, a favorite of local families, where you can walk a brief bushland circuit that showcases a waterfall spilling from the head of a gully. Continue on to Nielsen Park, and admire the turquoise waters of Shark Beach.
Before heading back across the water on the private boat, experience another local hot spot, Dunbar House at Watson's Bay. Once you’ve had your fill, return by ferry from Watsons Bay to the heart of Sydney, with a new appreciation for the skyline you admired from across the harbor.
