Continue your journey to Sydney Central Station. On arrival, make your own way to your accommodation.

Day 3


For a terrific Sydney snapshot, travel to Manly via Darling Harbour and the famous Sydney Harbour Bridge. Stop at Milsons Point for spectacular views across Sydney Harbour to the Sydney Opera House and back towards the Harbour Bridge, aka the ‘The Big Coathanger’. From North Head Lookout, panoramic views extend beyond the Harbour to the Pacific Ocean. Down in Manly, stroll along the café-lined Corso to the surf beach that has made this suburb famous. The trip back to central Sydney takes you through the exclusive suburbs of Neutral Bay and Mosman. In the afternoon, join your cruise to Taronga Zoo. With over 4000 animals to see and 20-plus keeper talks every day, your time here will be packed full of experiences. (B)

Day 4


Immerse yourself in Sydney’s tumultuous history and bright future on a walking tour, passing Cadman’s Cottage, the oldest building in Australia, moving under the iconic Sydney Harbour Bridge and tracing the waterfront to Sydney’s newest development, Barangaroo. Stroll down historic Argyle Place and Nurses Walk and continue to other essential sights, including the Customs House and Sydney Opera House – all with a local guide who’ll show you the bits you’d miss if you were on your own. This is Sydney ‘warts and all’, recounting the birth of modern Australia, the decisions made and legacies left behind: those who won, those who lost, and everyone in between. Factual, funny, irreverent and anecdotal – it’s an insightful local experience packed full of history and humour. The remainder of your day is free to further explore Sydney at your leisure. (B)

Day 5


Check out of your hotel after breakfast: one last chance to explore Sydney before your journey home. (B)
