      About This Sydney Tour

      If you have ever wondered why much of Australia's Aboriginal people were forced to move to other lands, you will no longer wonder after participating in this tour. Whether you join privately or as a 6-person group, a knowledgeable historian will take you in the direction of Sydney Cove. Learn about the 11 ships that disembarked from Portsmouth back in 1787, each of them carrying convicts and families of British, French, American and African origin. Next, move onto Circular Quay, which overlooks the central business district of Sydney.

      Circular Quay is famous for the Sydney Tower Eye, Sydney Town Hall and Suez Canal, among many other landmarks. Admire the Georgian architecture of  St. James Church. Nearby is the very first property to be built on the mainland - Australia's First Government House. Plans were made by Governor Macquarie. Various points in history are reflected in Sydney's ancient structures, like the State Library and significant convict house, Hyde Park Barracks. Convicts would usually be sentenced at the nearby King Street Law Courts.

      The Life and Adventures of Lachlan Macquarie

      You are going to hear a lot about governor Lachlan Macquarie on this insightful tour but why is he so well known, you ask? A man with Scottish cultural heritage, he has often been named the “father of Australia”. During his lifetime (1762-1824), Macquarie banned nude bathing and caused marriage rates to spike following the announcement of a law that prohibited women from obtaining their partner’s property. He was responsible for broadening the boundaries far beyond Sydney Basin and without taking on the role of dictator-governor, Australia’s first currency might have been very different. So powerful was he that he pressed for an 89-year-old member of his family to be appointed as the Horse of Guards.
