A Local's perspective of scintillating Sydney, including its inner Eastern and Northern Harbour and Beach fronting Suburbs
A 8 hour full day guided drive through inner Sydney and its exclusive Eastern and Northern harbour and beach fronting suburbs. As we follow the natural contours of the harbour and the beaches on both the eastern and northern suburbs, the breathtaking views are simply scintillating. We will regularly stop the vehicle, walk about, talk about and photograph those iconic features that have made Sydney famous, the Harbour Bridge, the Opera House, Bondi Beach, the spectacular entrance to Sydney Harbour and Manly Beach. We will drive through and discuss the historic Rocks precinct and early Government settlements; cosmopolitan suburbs such as Double Bay and Mosman; trendy beach suburbs such as Tamarama and Freshwater: vibrant old world Chinatown and Chatswood with its emerging Asian influence; modernised Darling Harbour and the not so modernised Fish Market and the gorgeous leafy North Shore. By tour ends you will have been 'scintillated' by Sydney's beauty, its history and its modern day charm!!
We commence the tour in The Rocks, discussing why the area was chosen for early settlement and then take a walk by the harbour to learn about the construction of the Sydney Harbour Bridge and the iconic Sydney Opera House.
We then travel to Mrs Macquarie's Point for another great photo opportunity stop before venturing through affluent inner Eastern Suburbs such as Double Bay to reach South Head.
At South Head we stop for a walk offering spectacular ocean, harbour and city views before heading to Bondi Beach for a lunch break and an opportunity to soak up the local beach culture.
After lunch we travel through Chinatown and Darling Harbour before crossing the harbour to the leafy North Shore. We drive through exclusive suburbs perched above Sydney Harbour with stops at both Georges Head and North Head lookouts.
We visit Manly Beach where we can indulge in an afternoon drink or a walk along the the lively beachfront enjoying an ice cream before returning to the city through more leafy inner northern suburbs.
