This unique day is the ultimate way to experience the beauty of Sydney. Begin the day touring the streets of Sydney with your own private guide and vehicle. Enjoy lunch overlooking the harbour and then finish with a private 2 hour sail on a 40ft Beneteau Yacht on Sydney Harbour.
Your experienced guide greets you at your city hotel for a drive around the historic Rocks precinct, visiting the first church in Australia, the Observatory and the convict built cottages, continuing around Circular Quay, the Opera House and into the magnificent Botanical Gardens. Here we take a short walk to view Mrs Macquarie’s chair and excellent harbour views to the Harbour Bridge and Opera House.
Continue through Woolloomooloo, Kings Cross and into Rushcutters bay. It’s here we stop to enjoy a lunch at the Cruising Yacht Club of Australia, Australia’s premier yacht club and home to what is considered yachting’s ‘Everest’ – the Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race.
We Continue on through Darling Point, one of Sydney’s most affluent suburbs and see some of Sydney’s most sought after addresses. Pass by Double Bay, Rose Bay, Vaucluse and Watsons Bay, before traversing along the coastline to Sydney’s most famous beach, Bondi Beach. Here you will have some time to soak up the atmosphere of this beachside Mecca. Stroll down the esplanade with the locals and maybe enjoy an ice cream before re-boarding your vehicle.
We return to the city, via Oxford Street Paddington, arriving at Darling Harbour where your yacht awaits for a cruise around Sydney Harbour with a delicious afternoon tea. After an incredible 2 hours on the world’s most beautiful harbour, your vessel returns to Darling Harbour. Here you may decide to eat out at any one of the dozen or more restaurants, stay and enjoy the entertainment, returning to your hotel at your leisure.
