The tour starts at the northern end of Bondi Beach. From Ben Buckler viewing point you can survey Australia’s most famous beach and the craggy cliffs jutting south to Coogee. From the lookout we head down onto Bondi Beach. Visit the Bondi Pavilion. Built in 1928 in the Mediterranean style, the pavilion serves as a cultural center.

At the southern end of the beach you see the classy Bondi Icebergs Club. The clifftop trail begins after the Icebergs. Cut into the sandstone, the pathway is very popular with walkers and runners. Heading south, the first beach you’ll come to is Tamarama Beach. Next up is Bronte Beach, which has a string of eateries and a family atmosphere - here we finish up with a nice cup of coffee.

For a window into Sydney’s early days and a close encounter with the Sydney Opera House and Sydney Harbour Bridge, take a stroll through The Rocks and around Circular Quay. Start your tour at Playfair Street at the entrance of the Sydney Visitor Centre, the historical heart of Sydney. A short stroll takes us to the Observatory Hill from where you can take in some sweeping harbour views. At the base of the hill is The Garrison Church. Built in 1843, this is Australia’s oldest church and where Australia’s first prime minister Edmund Barton went to school. From here, wander down Argyle Street through the Argyle Cut, a sandstone opening created by convict labour.

Take the Argyle Steps and the stairs from Cumberland Street onto the bridge’s eastern footpath and visit the Pylon Lookout. Displays here document the bridge’s construction during the 1920s and ’30s. Back on Argyle Street, head downhill for the Rocks Discovery Museum. The intriguing exhibits here focus on early European artifacts and The Rocks’ original residents, the Cadigal people. From here walk towards Cadman’s Cottage. Built in 1816 - this is Sydney’s oldest house. Below Cadman’s Cottage is Sydney Cove.

Navigate your way around the shoreline to Circular Quay, one of the hubs of Sydney’s public transportation system. Just inland from Circular Quay is the sandstone Customs House. Originally an import/export clearance hall, it’s now a library and civic center. Inspect the Sydney scale model built into the lobby floor. Finish your tour on the steps of the iconic Sydney Opera House, Sydney’s architectural masterpiece and No. 1 attraction.
