What You Can Expect
Leading your small group is a local guide who is well-versed in the area. On your easy walk, meander down the Hermitage Track to Watsons Bay as your guide shares insider tips about the area. The path affords views of Sydney Harbour Bridge and the Sydney Opera House across the harbor. Snap gorgeous photos and experience these iconic sights from an entirely new perspective.
The Hermitage Track also holds its own appeal. Admire the grounds of Strickland House, climb ancient toppled tree trunks, and wind past native flora. Along the way, stop at Parsley Bay, a favorite of local families, where you can walk a brief bushland circuit that showcases a waterfall spilling from the head of a gully. Continue on to Nielsen Park, and admire the turquoise waters of Shark Beach.
Before heading back across the water on the ferry, experience another local favorite—fish and chips at Doyle’s at Watsons Bay. This Sydney institution, family owned for five generations, dishes out fresh Australian seafood against the backdrop of the stunning blue waters of the bay. Once you’ve had your fill, return by ferry from Watsons Bay to the heart of Sydney, with a new appreciation for the skyline you admired from across the harbor.
This was actually my first detour experience. I happen to find it when I felt like to do some hiking around some area I haven't been in Sydney. I was so lucky that the day I booked had no other guest. But the host Berangere still did the tour for me. Berangere was a very sweet and kind lady who made my trip a lot of fun. She made very delicious energy desert for every guest, which was nicely wrapped like a delicate gift.
Great tour with a friendly and accomplished guide. Have seen lot of hidden places, beautiful bays/beaches apart from all those tourist paths. Have had a wonderful day, enjoyed it. This tour's definitively its money worth; high recommendable!
