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.

  • 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.
