They include adventure, beach, city, cultural, flora and fauna, food and wine, nature, science and technology, shopping, sport and water-based tours.
A good way to start your Sydney adventure is to board the open-topped, red double-decker bus that drives around city streets. Buy a ticket for the City Explorer and you’ll be able to hop on and hop off at 34 different stops that include all the major Sydney attractions - Darling Harbour, The Rocks, Chinatown, Circular Quay, the Opera House, the Royal Botanic Gardens, Hyde Park, Kings Cross and Woolloomooloo. Tours run every day, all day. There’s also a blue Explorer bus that drives around the eastern suburbs’ harbourside bays and Bondi Beach.
A harbour cruise is another perfect way to tour Sydney. Head to Circular Quay or King Street Wharf where you’ll find morning, lunch, afternoon and evening cruises, some including meals and entertainment. Sailing on Sydney Harbour is one of life’s great pleasures – there are several morning, day and sunset tours on offer. You can hire a yacht or go cruising with an experienced crew that will do all the hard work for you.
If you want a bit more speed with your harbour experience try a jetboat tour and you’ll enjoy an exhilarating trip around Sydney Harbour with 360 degree fish-tail spins.
Cycling is also very popular in Sydney and there are some great cycleways around the city, suburbs and harbour. All you need is a bike and a helmet (necessary by law) and you’re set to go. Alternatively, you can join an escorted bike tour to discover Sydney’s best attractions with a local guide.
Seaplane flights are a fabulous way to see the stunning natural beauty of the city, the harbour and surrounding beaches and national parks. Taking off from Rosebay on Sydney Harbour, seaplane flights will take you to Palm Beach, Pittwater and the Hawkesbury River, north of Sydney. Seaplane flights include lunch at a waterside restaurant and/or overnight accommodation.
