Stroll along Bondi beach
Welcome to Sydney, one of the most vibrant and panoramic cities in the world! Your friendly and knowledgeable guide will meet you at your hotel, and off you'll go to begin a day of exploration.
Your first stop is a tour of the historic Rocks precinct. Witness the birth place of Sydney and explore the convict-built cottages, pubs and the first church in Australia. Climb Observatory Hill for views of Anzac Bridge and Darling Harbour. Then cross the magnificent Sydney Harbour Bridge, one of Australia’s most recognised landmarks. Travel through the leafy northern suburbs before arriving at Manly, a beautiful seaside town. Take a secluded walk along the rugged sandstone cliffs—we promise it will take your breath away.
Next, make your way to the stunning botanical gardens situated right in the heart of Sydney. En route pass through Macquarie Street, named after the first Governor of Sydney, Lachlan Macquarie. Here you will see Australia’s first Parliament House, Mint, Hyde Park Barracks and St Mary’s Cathedral.
After lunch at the botanical gardens, your tour continues down to Mrs. Macquarie’s chair, situated on the water’s edge. Continue through Woolloomooloo, Kings Cross and onto Darling Point, one of Sydney’s most affluent suburbs, and see some of Sydney’s most sought-after addresses. Continuing on, pass by Double Bay, Rose Bay, Vaucluse and Watsons Bay, before traversing along the coastline to Sydney’s most famous beach, Bondi. Here you will have some time to soak up the atmosphere of the beachside mecca, with a stroll down the esplanade and maybe an ice cream treat.
Make your way back to Sydney via the vibrant Oxford Street and the suburb of Paddington. Admire this boutique shopping precinct and the charming Georgian and Victorian architecture of the homes. Wrap up your day with a relaxing dinner on your own.
