About this Sydney Tour
The land Down Under possesses a reputation for being laidback, beckoning with brilliant sunshine and beach time. In reality, its citizens are a notoriously industrious bunch who have ranked among the world's most hardworking. So much so that the country's tourism agency once implemented the "No Leave, No Life" campaign, urging companies to ensure employees use up their vacation days. And that's fair dinkum (true).
Climb aboard and grab a heady brew and tasty bites. Unwind as you glide around for a scenic intro to Sydney's waterside sites. See The Rocks, founded in 1788, soon after the colony. Once the realm of sailors, prostitutes, and gangs, it's popular with shoppers and history buffs. Hear about Fort Denison's old role as a penal site and defense facility, perched on Pinchgut Island.
No loop would be complete without a sneak peek of Sydney Opera House, recognizable against the skyline backdrop. Famous and bluntly debated for cutting-edge architecture, the white-sailed structure pokes into the harbor at Bennelong Point, atop a pink-granite stage. Home to several cultural venues, the icon proudly bears the UNESCO World Heritage Site badge.
Stare in awe at "The Coathanger" nearby. That's the 440-foot Sydney Harbour Bridge, the largest with a steel, arch-based design, supporting a whopping eight road lanes, two rail tracks, one walkway, and one cycle path. From vintage venues to modern marvels, your tour is just getting started. Try to keep one hand free…from the waves is a fantastic vantage point to capture postcard-worthy pics.
"Like an uncle who wants to get into every snapshot"
In his book Down Under, American travel writer Bill Bryson notes "everything that is in (the Sydney Harbour Bridge)…is the biggest of its type you have ever seen." An arch weighing 43,000 tons. Concrete pylons standing 292 feet high. Six-million rivets, the largest of which is eight pounds and almost 16 inches long. He's probably right, and its size might explain why it dominates the landscape…and so many peoples' hearts.
Please make your own way to King Street Wharf, Darling Harbour
