From the cobblestone lanes of The Rocks neighborhood to the postcard-worthy landmarks of Sydney Harbour, there’s plenty to explore in Sydney. To experience the city like a local, a walking or biking tour is the way to go—here are your options.  

Highlights
  • See more of Sydney by touring the city on foot, by bike, or on an electric bike.
  • Explore local neighborhoods such as Darlinghurst, Surry Hills, Kings Cross, and The Rocks.
  • Discover the city’s hidden sights and little-known landmarks with the help of a local guide.
  • Opt for a private or small-group tour for a more personalized experience.

Walking Tours
Choose a walking tour that suits your interests: learn about Australia’s convict history as you stroll around The Rocks; admire colorful street art in Newtown and Enmore; brave an after-hours walking tour of haunted Sydney; or hunt down the best coffee shops in Darlinghurst and Surry Hills. Alternatively, escape the city for a hike in the Sydney Harbour National Park or enjoy the ocean views on the famous coastal walk from Bondi to Coogee.

Biking Tours
Bike tours mean you can cover more ground and take in more of Sydney’s attractions on a short tour. Perhaps cycle over Sydney Harbour Bridge and enjoy spectacular views of the harbour and Sydney Opera House; follow Sydney’s cycleways to sights such as Hyde Park, the Royal Botanic Gardens, Sydney Olympic Park, and Mrs Macquarie's chair; or zip around Manly Beach on an electric bike.
