Sydney, NSW, Australia

I grew up in the outback with all its characters, poetry, animals, beauty.

My 35 years work life as been in wonderful vibrant Sydney.

Or guide you through every part of Australia (see below)*

CRUISE GUESTS, SHORE EXCURSIONS, PRE OR POST CRUISE TOURS A SPECIALTY.

****HOW MUCH TIME DO YOU HAVE?

Or spend a week
I use fully insured and accredited vehicles with a driver.
Choose one that suits you, or contact me for a personalised tour.
*****Private 45 min Cruise exploring Sydney Harbour can be added to all tours.

My passion for travel is all-consuming: for 28 years I have guided guests both throughout the cities and outback of Australia and thro Europe, North and South America, the Pacific and Asia.

With a childhood in "bush" Queensland I learnt to love the land and animals, the poetry, stories, humour and characters of the Outback.
With 35years in flamboyant Sydney I have been seduced by this wonderful vibrant city- filled with superb food markets, colourful and delicious restaurants and bars, music and galleries

Travel with me and you will not get long boring history talks.
Let's wander the Rocks, the city, the Cross, Potts Point, Woolloomooloo, Rushcutters Bay, the beaches and headlands and see it like a local, stopping for a drink, a gallery, a shop or something great to eat.
No long boring history talks, stories and anecdotes and personal dedicated service.

We can walk thro the streets of old Sydney and enter the spirit of colonial days.
We can find some cute koalas to cuddle, feed a kangaroo, watch a wombat and platypus or a Tasmanian devil.
Look for laughing kookaburra or a screeching cockatoo, a green lorikeet.
We can dine out in style, or a pub, on a boat, by the harbour, by the beach. Your choice.
We can wander thro the galleries and see aboriginal art, colonial art or the best exhibitions of contemporary paintings.
Or shop the chic boutiques or the bargain markets.
Or do you want to take a lesson at a surfing school, cruise the harbour, tour the Sydney Opera House, follow a gourmet trail, taste some wine, ride a helicopter over the city, harbour and beaches, go for a hike along the hidden reaches of magnificent Sydney harbour?

Sydney needs a week at least to do it justice.
But I will find you the best of the best in whatever time you have - 4 hours, a day, 2 days, a week. . . .

Walking or driving city tours, country tours, wine country.
* Or if you wish- contact me for tours throughout Australia- Ayers Rock, Great Barrier Reef, the Kimberley, Tasmania, wine regions of Australia and New Zealand.

I have a university degree in economics, languages and literature.
I have lived in UK, USA, Italy and Japan and cruising the world is my current passion.
My personal loves are real people, real experiences, wine and food, and lots of fun as we go.
