What You Can Expect

Sydney Shore Excursion: Sydney Walking Tour

Fountain at Hyde Park

Make your own way from your cruise ship to the meeting point for your walking tour, which is located just a few minutes walk from the cruise ship terminal at Circular Quay. Your guide welcomes you to the place where Sydney began, the Rocks district, where the British colony was founded in the late 1700s.

Your walking tour includes the historic route of the Tank Stream, which provided fresh water to the original Aboriginal residents of the region and later the British colonialists. Learn the history of Sydney in part through this lens as your guide takes you to fascinating nooks and crannies off-the-beaten-path.

Expect to walk at a leisurely pace from Circular Quay, through the heart of downtown and wrap up in the lush environs of Hyde Park, covering about 1.5 miles (2 km) with frequent stops and photo ops. Along the way you’ll get a good look at iconic sights including the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Sydney Opera House and Sydney Harbour Bridge.

You’ll also see the Conservatorium of Music, a handsome castle-like structure that contains 18th-century architectural artifacts, then pass by the Mint, which was originally a convict hospital and is currently central Sydney’s oldest public building.

Your guide wraps up your walking tour in Hyde Park, Australia’s first public park. You'll leave this tour equipped with insider tips from your local guide, so that you can discover more of Sydney on your own.
