Today you will see some of the best sights that this beautiful harbour city has to offer. Your Driver Guide will provide expert commentary as you weave your way through the bustling city streets to key landmarks.

Travel across the Sydney Harbour Bridge to Milsons Point and stop for spectacular views of the Sydney Opera House, Harbour Bridge and city skyline. Located on the lower North Shore, Milsons Point is a scenic suburb and home to some of Sydney's most exclusive homes, schools, cafes, restaurants and boutique stores. Many of the buildings within Milsons Point have been historically preserved from as early as the 1800s, making the sweeping views of the Opera House and Sydney Harbour even more interesting.

Visit La Perouse, a historical headland suburb where Captain Cook first landed in 1770. From this vantage point see Botany Bay and the protected beaches where the English and French naval ships arrived on the shores of this land.

See the historical buildings and learn how the Aboriginal people were impacted.

Discover the birthplace of modern Australia on a guided walking tour at the Rocks.  Wander the cobbled laneways and learn the rich history of the area from a British colony of convicts and sailors to a thriving entertainment precinct. Situated at the very base of the Harbour Bridge, the Rocks is a lively and popular spot for locals and visitors alike. In a time long ago, the area was inhabited by the indigenous Gadigal people, before the first European settlers claimed the land in 1778. From the Rocks you will get a stunning view of the Sydney Harbour Bridge, the largest steel arch bridge in the world.• An afternoon of spectacular photo opportunities!
