Our Northern Beaches Tour Sydney shows a paradise within a city. Led by a Sydneysider who grew up on the Northern Beaches, you will be in for a treat. With stunning beaches, breathtaking waterways, mind blowing scenery and a laid back beach culture, it would be difficult to find a comparison. In fact, one would say there would be possibly only a few modern cities with a population exceeding 5 million that offered beautiful safe swimming in a climate where the city’s people could enjoy them. Our Northern Beaches are linked to the rest of the city by only 3 access points (Spit Bridge, Roseville Bridge and Mona Vale Rd) making it a little secluded from the rest of our metropolis ensuring its unique culture remains. The area or peninsular is a treat with beautiful beaches and bush, pure water and air so clean you need to breathe it to believe it.
To ask which of our beaches is best is possibly only a question for people who have not visited the area. Some beaches are better for surfing such as Long Reef with its great break, others are sheltered for swimming such as Freshwater and whilst some are relatively secluded, beaches like Manly and Dee Why have restaurants and cafes that overlook them.
The Northern Peninsula is synonymous with water activities. It boasts 30 kilometres of beautiful golden sandy beaches and picture perfect scenery. People are seen swimming, surfing, body surfing, snorkelling, sailing, kayaking, windsurfing, motor boating, fishing. You will pass sparkling waterways where boats bob up and down in the calm sparkling waters. Many people are seen jogging, running, bicycling as they take in the area’s clean salted air. From the Norfolk pine fringed Manly beach-side to the palm trees of Palm Beach, the area is a recreational heaven. The insular peninsula is a great equaliser. Whilst some of the most expensive real estate is there and it is a popular place to live for some of the city’s movers and shakers, the people are really down to earth. The ex prime minister Tony Abbott was often interviewed coming out of the surf in just his speedos. People from all walks of life will go into the fish and chip shops in just their swimmers and thongs.
A tour of this area is a fascinating way to see a side of Sydney that many people never experience. Visit the amazing beaches and bush of the north. Explore the beautiful flora and fauna and maybe see a wallaby, water dragon (a large lizard) or even a goanna (a larger lizard). We are the only private tour that takes you to where the wallabies live. See the beautiful harbours and sandy shores. Walk around the small rock pools and see small sea life (such as sea anemones and small crabs).
Some of the highlights of this tour are:
• With luck see some animals such as wallabies, goannas and water dragons
• Walk along a suburban sandy beach
• Explore one of the city’s rock pools
• Experience the pristine wilderness of Ku-ring-gai National Park
• Walk to a lighthouse
• See Summer Bay from Home and Away
• View the city skyline from one of Sydney’s best vantage points
• Catch the Manly Ferry back to the city (or we can drive you back if you prefer)
