Nature Tours in Sydney
Sydney is famous for its outdoor lifestyle and there are lots of ways to make the most of it. Explore the trails and look-outs in the many National Parks. Learn to surf or ride a horse. You can also take a number of scenic cruises around the city's waterways. Nature-based tours make a lot of sense if you're new in town or simply looking for a new perspective on Sydney and its beautiful surrounds.
Good surf breaks aren't always at the most well-known beaches, and on a tour you can pick the brains of the locals in the know. Newbies will also find surf schools at Manly, Bondi Beach and Cronulla. And horse enthusiasts can get their kicks in Sydney's west and in Moore Park in Sydney's East – or by booking a horseback tour or trail ride in the Blue Mountains, the Hunter Valley or the Central Coast.
If you fancy sitting back and soaking up the views from the deck of a boat, daily cruises departing from Palm Beach travel up picturesque Hawksbury River. You'll also find cruises up the Parramatta River departing from Circular Quay.
From the shore, a range of nature-based tours offer insight into aboriginal heritage – from bush tucker walks and coastal discovery tours to guided Aboriginal experiences around the harbour and the Botanic Gardens. You'll find great guided walks in the Royal National Park and around Bondi Beach, too.
