About the tour

This hidden-gem of a small, local botanic garden offers unexpected finds including a Wollomi Pine - one of the oldest and rarest plants on earth. The species dates to the dinosaurs, and there are fewer than 100 adult trees existing in the wild. And tucked away in an odd corner, a local brush turkey has built a big nesting mound, just waiting for a mate and eggs.

Meet Elizabeth - Sydney

Elizabeth - Sydney

Elizabeth is an American by birth, Australian by choice. She is a happy immigrant and resident of Sydney for nearly 21 years. Having been fascinated with Australia since she was 12, Elizabeth found that when she arrived in Sydney in 2000, she already knew more about her new home than many of the Australians she met. She finally put all that knowledge to work as a tour guide in 2019 – just in time to really fall in love with it before Covid hit. From the iconic sights that always take her breath away no matter how many times she’s seen them, like the Opera House and the Sydney Harbour Bridge, to the little-known but beautiful corners of the city, Elizabeth loves exploring Sydney and showing it off to friends and guests. She lives in Manly, on Sydney’s northern beaches. She’s been very slowly blogging her way through all 84 of Sydney’s beaches and is working on a travel memoir about riding her bicycle around Europe.
