What You'll Get
This food and drink tour of Sydney will give you a literal taste of all the city has to offer! Over the course of the evening, in a small group, you will visit three different small bars, all tucked away in basements, back alleys, old horse-cart carriageways, loading docks, and other hard-to-find corners. Spend about 45-minutes in each venue, giving you plenty of time to sample some snacks and/or enjoy a drink, depending on what’s on offer at each place.
One of the great things about this tour is that it’s rarely the same thing twice! you might be treated to specialty pizza one time or tapas or dumplings another time, washed down with maybe a glass of mulled wine in winter or sangria in summer. Come with an open mind for whatever’s placed in front of you!
In between stops, you’ll be guided along some of Sydney’s most interesting streets, where you can discover other venues, see fantastic street art, spy intriguing spaces, and learn where the locals really go after work hours.
The tour starts at the glass dome in Wynyard Park, the site of the old military barracks where the New South Wales Corps marched to arrest Governor Bligh in 1808 — known later as the Rum Rebellion. In the mid-1800s, it then became a site for shops and homes, with a recreational square.
The tour will end in the Kent Street area, after 3-hours of exploring the city centre via the nooks and crannies hidden away in downtown Sydney.
