Sydney Harbour is one of the most majestic, unique and beautiful harbours in the world. It is world famous for the our Harbour Bridge and unique Opera House as well as its yearly New Year’s fireworks and Sydney to Hobart yacht race. Geologically, the harbour is a drowned river valley. It is 19 km long and has an area of 55 km2. At high tide it holds 562 million cubic metres of water. Historically, the harbour was selected as the first location for settlement by Europeans.
On the water, there are all manner of aquatic transportation. From the cruise ships and ferries to sailing craft and even jet boats and kayaks, you will be thrilled surveying the waters surrounding our great city. Tourists come to the city by Cruise ship. Commuters come to work by ferry. Can you think of a better way to go to work in the morning?
It is a beautiful natural paradise where people come sailing, swimming and cruising. Boats and kayaks ply its pristine waters. Around its shores, grassy areas and bushy tracks, people spend time walking, jogging, picnicking, etc. Here you can walk through bush trails whilst viewing the yachts on the harbourside and the expensive homes on the other.
On this tour, we will meet at NSW Art Gallery. From the art gallery, we will walk past the Naval Base and Lady Macquarie’s Chair to the Botanical Gardens. Here, we are likely to see some Australian native birds and flora. There will be time to take some great photos of our iconic Opera House and Harbour Bridge (the Coat Hanger). We will then pass by Circular Quay and the Rocks before walking up and across the Harbour Bridge. On the other side, we will make a short detour to walk under the Harbour Bridge to see the smiling face of Luna Park. On this tour, we will pass some of the old sandstone buildings that give the city its charm.
Bring comfortable walking shoes, hat, sunscreen, sunglasses, camera, water bottle and a jacket. As this is a walking tour, it is suggested that if it looks like it could rain, that you bring an umbrella, rain jacket or poncho.
