What You Can Expect

Sydney Day Tour with Optional Sydney Harbour Lunch Cruise

Bondi Beach Sydney

After morning pickup at your hotel (see Itinerary for pickup times), you’ll travel by air-conditioned coach, listening to live on board commentary about the sights. Head to Manly Beach, passing Darling Harbour before crossing the iconic Sydney Harbour Bridge. Stop at Milson’s Point for spectacular views of Sydney Opera House and Sydney Harbour Bridge, then continue to Arabanoo Lookout where you’ll get panoramic views over Manly and the Pacific Ocean.

In Manly, you’ll have time to stroll along The Corso, checking out the relaxed vibe of this popular pedestrian street that ends at Manly Beach. Dip your toes in the ocean and watch the surfers bobbing on the waves before returning with your coach to Sydney.

You’ll have the option to upgrade your tour with a luncheon cruise at mid-day. On the cruise, you’ll enjoy a tasty buffet while listening to informative commentary about the sights that you see from the waters of Sydney Harbour. If you choose not to take the cruise, you will have two hours to explore at your leisure before meeting your coach for the afternoon portion of the tour.

In the afternoon, you’ll set out first for the historic Rocks district, the oldest part of Sydney. Then your coach will drive past Hyde Park, St Mary’s Cathedral, Parliament House and the Art Gallery of New South Wales to the Royal Botanic Gardens. In the gardens, you’ll stop at Mrs Macquarie’s Chair, a sandstone bench hand-carved in 1810 for the governor’s wife so that she could look over Sydney Harbour.

Next you'll drive to The Gap, a coastal cliff with stunning views overlooking Watson’s Bay. Snap some photos, then pay a visit to popular Bondi Beach. Afterward you'll return to central Sydney traveling through Paddington, the exclusive eastern suburbs, and Rushcutters Bay.

We skipped the lunch cruise, because we had a dinner cruise that evening. This was a great way to get out and see the outskirts of the city....including fantastic beaches and lookout points.

To those who are new to Sydney, it was a great way to familiarise with the city. It should be noted that the 'all day' trip was in fact two 'three hour' separate trips and if taking the full day, you have a two hour lunch break to fill in on your own.

I don't know what you pay our driver Henry, but it is not enough! He was knowledgeable, entertaining and kept our interest for both of the trips. Well done Henry!
