Overview

See Sydney from a local’s perspective on a private guided walking tour of its harbor-side beaches and eastern suburbs. Breathe in the ocean air as you take a private boat across the water to Rose Bay, where you’ll set out to see a seldom-explored side of the city. Discover Parsley Bay, Nielsen Park and the Hermitage Foreshore track, which grants stunning views of the Sydney Opera House and Sydney Harbour Bridge across the water. End the walk with a much-deserved lunch to be enjoyed in Watsons Bay.

Begin discovering a less-explored side of Sydney from your hotel, where you meet your guide. You'll then board a private boat to cross to Rose Bay. As you’re carried over the water, catch a glimpse of Shark Island—named for its fin-shaped outline—and Sydney landmarks. Arrive at Rose Bay where you will enjoy a delicious morning tea snack and begin your guided tour of the harbor foreshore and surrounding areas that make up Sydney Harbour National Park.

Leading your private group is a local guide who is well-versed in the area. On your easy walk, meander down the Hermitage Track to Watsons Bay as your guide shares insider tips about the area. The path affords views of Sydney Harbour Bridge and the Sydney Opera House across the harbor. Snap gorgeous photos and experience these iconic sights from an entirely new perspective.

The Hermitage Track also holds its own appeal. Admire the grounds of Strickland House, climb ancient toppled tree trunks, and wind past native flora. Along the way, stop at Parsley Bay, a favorite of local families, where you can walk a brief bushland circuit that showcases a waterfall spilling from the head of a gully. Continue on to Nielsen Park, and admire the turquoise waters of Shark Beach.

Before heading back across the water on the private boat, experience another local hot spot, Dunbar House at Watson's Bay. Once you’ve had your fill, return by ferry from Watsons Bay to the heart of Sydney, with a new appreciation for the skyline you admired from across the harbor.

This tour was amazing and our group of eight highly recommends it. Our guide Bell was superb and the scenery was breathtaking with views of Sydney Harbour not usually seen by tourists. We loved discovering the beautiful bays and learning about the history of the area, not to mention Bell's delicious home made muesli bars! The tour was the highlight of our time in Sydney.

The Sydney Harbour National Park Walking Tour is a 'must do' for all Sydneysiders, Interstate and International visitors. Starting at Circular Quay, you catch the ferry across one of the most beautiful harbours in the world to Rose Bay. From there you start the walk, while an expert guide informs you of local history. Continuing to walk you join the Hermitage Foreshore Track, which has to be one of the most spectacular walks in Sydney, taking in all the harbour views, Nielsen Park and Parsley Bay. Reaching the end at Watsons Bay for a much deserved fish and chip lunch at Doyle's at Watsons Bay.

The walk is very well organised and our guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. I would recommend this walk to all who enjoy the outdoors, nature and of course, waking.

After the razmattaz and excitement of Circular Quay, the Opera House, etc. this was a super pleasant way to spend half a day looking at Sydney Harbour from calmer shores. Bérangère Graham was our delightful guide. French, but now a committed Australian she guided us from Rose Bay to Watson's Bay passing through some delectable suburbs and interesting spiders' webs. The ferry rides there and back were an adventure too and provided yet more angles to photograph the iconic sights of Sydney's magnificent harbour. One of my highlight activities.

This experience was truly exceptional. The views were outstanding and the walk was relatively challenging. And the tour guide's enthusiasm was infectious. It really is nice to go on tour with a person who obviously likes her work so much. The itinerary was well put together and every element of the day fitted well together. And the fish and chip lunch was very welcome after the walk. Keep up the good work Berangere - you truly have a tour that every able bodied person should experience.
