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.
But stories and anecdotes and personal dedicated service.
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.
We can walk thro the streets of old Sydney and enter the spirit of colonial days.
Hear about Sydney's short 230years and it's evolution from colonial convict colony to a diverse and beautiful modern city.
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, green lorikeets.
We can dine out in style, or a pub, on a boat, by the harbour, by the beach. Your choice.
We can explore Sydney's vibrant gallery scene with aboriginal art, colonial art or the best exhibitions of contemporary paintings.
Or shop the chic boutiques or the bargain markets.
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 lifetime passion.
I love real people, real experiences, wine and food, and lots of fun as we go.
A Recent Review of this guide
What an amazing day!! Thank you again Lyndal (and Russel). We were well cared for and educated! Lyndal answered our endless (9 hours worth) questions - flora, fauna, history, geological formations, culture and many other esoteric topics - with humor and exceptional knowledge. She facilitated our entrance into places that required tickets and offered additional insight into how to best enjoy theses sights. One of the best tour guides I have ever had!
