Join a knowledgeable local guide on a fun walk through the inner-city areas of Pyrmont, Ultimo and Glebe!

On this walk, you'll learn why there are so many pubs in this part of Sydney, what a "VIP Lounge" is, discover the Aboriginal and early European history of the area and be surprised by our choice for Australia's "national dish". You'll see why this is one of the most multicultural parts of Australia, gain an insight into our sense of humour and find out some Aussie slang along the way. We'll stop for a coffee at a favourite local cafe mid-way through the walk, and at the end, we finish with a glass of delicious local craft beer at one of the most unique pubs you'll find in Sydney - complete with a talking pet cockatoo! We recommend doing this early in your Sydney stay as you'll get lots of tips to make your time in this city amazing.

Walking Tour: Discover The Rocks

star-5
On the 'DISCOVER THE ROCKS' tour we will visit the picturesque historic district The rocks on foot. This is the birthplace of modern Australia, and any tour of the country should start here. We are going to know together, in a very dynamic and close way, how the first convicts got here and the interests that the British crown had to create a penal colony on the other side of the world. We will walk through its streets and our hair will stand on end when we know the living conditions of this first settlement. We have tons of fun anecdotes and we will analyze the two great projects that have put Sydney on the map, the Harbor Bridge and The Opera House. This tour was born from the head of a couple of friends; an official guide and an architect, with a passion for storytelling. We feel that Sydney is our home and we want you to join us in discovering it. We assure you that this tour is the best thing that will happen to you in Australia for not knowing English.
