About Sydney Architecture Walks
We are architects and we want to share Sydney with you. We organise intimate walking and bicycle tours that are open to the general public. We also arrange private / customised architectural tours and itineraries on request. Taking the form of a series of urban provocations, our conversations are straightforward and jargon-free exercises in story telling. Aimed at the expert-enthusiast, we want you to understand the 'why' of the city whilst exploring the most provocative and daring projects Sydney houses; works of contemporary architecture, public art and landscape that inspire and delight but also projects that reveal something of Sydney's grimy pulse. We are interested in ideas and in the drivers of city; the vibrant network of invisible forces - political, cultural, economic and environmental that give the city form. Get stung by architecture. Sydney will never look the same again. Promise!

Eoghan was a great guide. His knowledge of the Opera House and Utzon was incredible. Gave a whole new insight into this iconic building and really put it into the context of Sydney at the time and as the work progressed. I would highly recommend this walk and will defintely be looking into some of their other walks.

Exceptional tour with a really passionate guide. Though Sydney is my home and have done a few similar walks over many decades, Eoghan's enthusiasm and knowledge made for a fascinating few hours. I'd recommend this walk to anyone who is interested in Sydney's architectural or cultural development and history.

Eoghan’s Opera House Tour was among the most informative and personal tours I’ve ever taken. This guy knows his stuff! As a practicing architect, he can talk about the design and construction at a level of detail beyond the capabilities of an “ordinary” tour guide. Yet Eoghan presented everything in a way that engaged everyone. He also gave fascinating insights into the competition to design the project, the personality of Jorn Utzon, and his troubled dealings with the NSW government. This tour is definitely focused on the genesis of the Opera House as a building. It’s the perfect complement to the “Backstage Tour” given by the Opera House which covers the inside operations. I highly recommend this SAW tour and look forward to taking others on future visits.

This is a fascinating tour for people interested in the deeper architectural and social aspects of this incredible building. Although I live in Sydney I had not ever had a chance to look so closely at the House with such an expert guide. Highly recommend this tour.
