2-hour walking tour of Sydney's finest heritage and dining precincts


Tour this 'Paris style' district and see some of the finest buildings and best cafes in Australia, together with places where criminals and artists have fought and loved for two centuries.

The Potts Point, Elizabeth Bay, Kings Cross district was settled over 200 years ago, within months of the original landing by the British First Fleet at Sydney Cove. These precincts contain magnificent examples of every kind of Australian architecture (dating from the early nineteenth century), together with hundreds of restaurants, bars and cafes nestled along tree shaded streets, wonderful views of Sydney Harbour, colourful characters and fascinating tales of the rise of crime in Sydney over the past century.

This tour was developed in conjunction with one of Sydney's leading heritage architects.

You will be presented with special knowledge of architecture, local history, crime stories and food & wine during this unique, private travel experience.

Itinerary

• We'll walk through the lovely tree lined streets of Potts Point, past dozens of historic buildings, cafes, delicatessens and shops.
• Then down into Elizabeth Bay, one of the most beautiful precincts in Australia, with fine houses and apartments overlooking Elizabeth Bay and Rushcutters Bay.
• We'll then walk through Kings Cross, past bars and nightclubs, to see some of the 'underbelly' of Sydney life.
• I'll tell you stories of the fascinating social, artistic and crime history of the area and about many of the magnificent buildings and notorious places we'll see along the way.
• This is also the movie making capital of Australia, so we might just run into Russell Crowe, David Wenham or Hugo Weaving.
