We start with a sweeping view of the Sydney Harbour Bridge from Observatory Hill – the highest natural point in Sydney. From here we’ll stroll through the oldest neighbourhood in Australia, the Rocks, learning a bit about colonial and social history. Passing pubs, delving into Australia’s fixation with real estate, and learning about the changing face of Sydney. We’ll end on Circular Quay for postcard views of both the Bridge and the Opera House. NOTE: This is the Agar Steps Route of this tour which takes in the area west of Observatory Hill including a look at Barangaroo and Walsh Bay on our way to Circular Quay.
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.

Thanks for another interesting tour.

Elizabeth's tours are always 5*. Loved this one for its unusual perspective - we walked past Victorian terrace houses, which are a familiar sight in England and obviously built by British settlers of the time. Nothing like the glossy, modern Australia we see on film and tv.
