Uncover all there is to learn about Sydney - Australia's oldest city - on this two-and-a-half hour comprehensive historical walking tour through the heart of Sydney while taking in the bright lights of Sydney's Vivid festival.
Starting at 6:00pm at Hyde Park's Obelisk, you'll hear about Australia's war history before exploring the beautiful Queen Victoria Building and crossing down to Darling Harbour and taking in some of the best vantage spots for Vivid.
Walking along we'll zig zag across to George Street - Sydney's oldest street, as we head toward Sydney Harbour and Australia's first suburb - The Rocks. As we get to The Rocks we'll stroll through some narrow laneways and uncover cutaways that are a reminder of Australia's convict past that dates back to the late 1700's. And you can't visit Sydney without checking out the Sydney Harbour Bridge...
With stunning views across Circular Quay, we'll sit down for a post-tour drink at one of Sydney's oldest and iconic pubs, where this tour will finish.
