The ‘Sydney Special’ City & Beaches Tour

It’s a great start to the day crossing Sydney Harbour and visiting Luna Park on the Northside.

As you can see from these South American and Asian travellers, Luna Park brings out the lunatic in all of us!

  

   

  

And you can’t beat the views of Sydney Harbour bridge

   

Next stop the Rocks, where modern Australia began, and one of the oldest pubs in Australia, ‘The Hero of Waterloo’, but be careful of the paparazzi

    

Then on to the Domain, home to the NSW Art Gallery, the Royal Botanic Gardens, Mrs Macquarie’s Chair, and more fabulous views of the harbour, the bridge, and the Opera house.

    

Leaving the Domain, we pass through Woolloomooloo, Kings Cross, and through some of the wealthier suburbs of Sydney on our way to one of the most famous beaches in the world, Bondi beach!

   

    

This warm summer day wouldn’t have been complete without enjoying the beach, and the water. For these two Mongolian girls it was only the second time they had been in the ocean!

  

  

  

It doesn’t get much better than this!

After lunch in Bondi, next stop was Centennial Park, an oasis of nature in the hustle and bustle of Sydney

  

     

then on to UNSW, one of Australia’s top universities

  

  

Our last stop was Maroubra beach

  

After a long hot day, the ‘Southerly’ storm came in the afternoon, and the best place to see it all was the Maroubra headland

   

  

Thunderstorm and lightning, very very frightening, skip to 35 sec

Then down to the beach and almost on cue comes the rainbow. A good day had by all!

  

Optional extras 

The Maroubra to Malabar walk through Malabar Headland National Park is approximately 2kms and takes 45 mins to an hour. A great way to start or finish the day!
