Walk around Sydney with a local and explore the hidden “secrets” of this picturesque city .You will enjoy highlights of the city and see over 200 years of history come to life.

Sydney was settled around a freshwater stream that formed the back boundary of properties fronting the earliest main streets, and a series of informal paths provided rear access to gardens, stables and storage areas.
In time, these laneways became formalised, oblivious to any planner’s grid. Other laneways developed to provide access to the rear of commercial buildings that came to dominate the area. Charming walkways or grungy service lanes, today they contribute complexity to the tapestry of the city.

Explore Sydney’s hidden sights on this 2-hour walking tour along the historic Tank Stream. Discover the bizarre backstories and incredible histories of the city’s sights as you take the least-walked path through downtown Sydney – a great local experience!

Experience Sydney from a local perspective by checking out the major sights and learning about the city’s history without feeling like a tourist. This Sydney tour is factual, funny, irreverent, and anecdotal – a great local experience!
See all the city icons, including The Rocks, Sydney Harbour Bridge, and the Sydney Opera House, but explore them in a way most tourists don’t. You’ll be taken on the least-walked path through Sydney and meander through this fascinating city’s tumultuous history and into the modern day.
Among others, we will walk on the Tank Stream, which today runs silently through a city drain below the pavement of the Tank Stream Way, walk through narrow lanes such as Palings Lane, which despite its very contemporary feeling, has been on or close to here for a long time.

We will end our walk by following in the footsteps of the nineteenth century working-class man that will lead us through The Rocks district. Let us show you our city and inform you about its history and culture
