    Tours

     

    There are free walking tours of the sights and history of Sydney. Look out for someone in a bright green shirt and simply tag along, no booking is required. Sight seeing tours start at 10:30am and 2:30pm at the construction beside Sydney Town Hall and the historical tours are at 6pm, starting at the Cadman’s Cottage.

     

     

    Jump onto the bright red Sydney and Bondi Hop-on Hop-off double decker tour bus if you feel like exploring a wider area. You can hop on and off at 34 different stops with access to amazing beaches, coastlines and views of Sydney.

     

    Sightsee around Sydney on a guided bike tour, from anywhere between 2 to 5 hours, choose a tour and travel around the neighbourhoods of Sydney with a knowledgeable bike tour guide.

     

     

    Visit the SEA LIFE Aquarium, WILD LIFE Sydney, Madame Tussads Wax Museum and Taronga Zoo by purchasing a combined pass which allows you entry into all attractions.

     

    Experience the breathtaking cliff top views and lookouts on a Nature and Wildlife tour at the Blue Mountains; explore the rock formations and Jenolan caves or experience the mountains from a different angle on a river cruise.

     

     

    Landmarks

     

    Visit Mrs Macquarie’s chair for a picturesque view of both the Harbour Bridge and Opera House. Sunset is the perfect timing for photos as the hues of blue purple red and orange make a great backdrop for the Harbour Bridge and Opera house.

     

     

    The Harbour Bridge also known as the ‘coat hanger’ because of its shape, is accessible by car, train, bicycle and foot. Try travelling through the Harbour Bridge by all modes of transport! Embark on the bridge climb at dawn or dusk if you are looking for a challenging and rewarding experience while learning about the fascinating construction of bridge too.

     

     

    The Opera House is home to a wide range of performances including opera, ballet, theatre and music performances. You can book a tour and discover more about the history of the building, the architecture and take some amazing photos inside this iconic Australian landmark.

     

     

    For spectacular elevated view of Sydney, be sure to visit the tallest structure in Sydney, the Sydney Tower Eye. Dine 268 metres above the ground at the Tower’s 360 revolving restaurant with breathtaking scenery. If you are game, try going for a walk on the glass floor overlooking stunning views of Sydney.
