What to Expect
Experience Sydney from a local perspective by checking out the major sights and learning about the city’s history without feeling like a tourist. This Sydney tour is factual, funny, irreverent, and anecdotal – a great local experience!
Explore all the city icons, including The Rocks, Sydney Harbour Bridge, and the Sydney Opera House, but explore them in a way most tourists don’t. You’ll be taken on the least-walked path through Sydney and meander through this fascinating city’s tumultuous history and into the modern day.
Walk along the route of the Tank Stream, which originally provided fresh water and all kinds of food for the Aboriginal people. Modern Australia was effectively developed along this water supply. The Tank Stream is now represented by a blue line painted on the ground the meanders through the city.
This Sydney walking tour makes its way along the blue line through to Hyde Park, retracing the steps that saw a small stream become the life source for a new country. You hit up the major sights, including the Opera House, Harbour Bridge, Angel Place, Parliament House, the Mint, and the Barracks, but in a way you wouldn’t experience on your own. This tour is a “warts and all” account of the birth of modern Australia and the legacies left from decisions made and the people who made them: those who won, those who lost, and everyone in between.
