Max gives an excellent 2hr guided walking tour at Sydney waterfront and thru the Rocks explaining the vivid history of Sydney cove. His knowledge of Sydney’s story is only exceeded by his storytelling ability. This guided walk is a gem!

Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with
energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise
buildings and after-work drink places, high-end
shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners
frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a
dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit
the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle,
reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens
