Cultural Tours in Sydney

At first glance, it may seem like Sydney's all style and no substance. But scratch the surface, and you'll find a multicultural melting pot rich in history, culture and Aboriginal heritage. To find out more, take a tour; you're sure to find one to suit.

Half a century ago, a young Danish architect put Sydney on the map with his design of The Sydney Opera House, and a backstage tour (offered in a range of languages) is essential for the inside scoop on this iconic landmark. There are also architect-led walking tours of one of the city's beautiful gardens, and art critics guide groups around Sydney's galleries, artist-run spaces and studios.

Food and wine buffs will easily be satisfied on walking tours around Sydney's multicultural eat streets and coffee precincts. And if you love the water, hop on a half-day tour of Bondi Beach – or buy a day pass and discover the city by ferry; Balmain, Taronga Zoo in Mosman and Manly are all must-see spots.

It's hard to beat the history lessons offered on walking tours around the city, or the Aboriginal heritage tours held around Sydney Harbour and in the Blue Mountains. And for real, albeit spooky, insight into Sydney's colonial past, join a historic or ghost tour at the Q Station in Manly, one of the most haunted sites in Australia.
