Day Tour of the Northern Beaches, Sydney
Your informative and knowledgeable guide will collect you from your Sydney hotel as we commence our private journey of Sydney and its City Highlights and the little visited picturesque Northern Beaches. We begin in the Sydney old town (The Rocks) and CBD (Central Business District)for you to learn about the settling of Sydney, colonial convict history and the modern financially focussed skyscrapers. We visit Macquarie St and MrsMacquarie’s Chair where some of Sydney’s most historic sites and buildings are located as well as prime views of Sydney Opera House and Sydney Harbour Bridge.
From here, it is time to escape the hustle and bustle of Sydney city and crossing The Sydney Harbour Bridge we travel through picturesque Northern Suburbs as we make our way to the Northern Beaches Peninsula. Arriving via the lushly forested Wakehurst Parkway we join the coast at Warriewood Headland for stunning views and morning tea/coffee refreshments. Driving on, we follow the coastline and enjoying stunning beach views before arriving at the Long Reef Headland. Here time to stretch your legs and enjoy the walk to the lookout for spectacular coastal views.
Heading into the local suburb of Dee Why we head to the beachfront to enjoy a leisurely lunch at one of the popular local restaurants. Here, with stunning beach views, we enjoy a delicious 2 course lunch of your choice off the menu, accompanied by a glass of beer, wine or soft drink. After lunch, we have time to enjoy a walk on the beach or perhaps enjoy a swim in the ocean! As we continue our exploration of local life in the Peninsula, we stop in at the iconic 4 Pines Brewery, where the machination of brewing meets the experience of drinking. 4 Pines Truck Bar is built inside the main brewery giving the customer the unique experience of drinking award-winning beer in the very place it is conceived and brewed. The bar is built of and around an old Dodge Truck and showcases 21 taps, including all the core range beers as well as rotating taps showcasing the large variety of small batch ‘Keller Door’ beers the brewery produce. Here chat with the local bar tender as we enjoy a tasting paddle of a selection of Brews. Our final stop of the day is in the well-known beach suburb of Manly for time to walk the esplanade, stopping to watch a local beach volleyball game or observe the local surfers before a final pause at North Head for stunning views back across the Sydney harbour entrance to Sydney city.
From here you can choose to stay on in Manly – perhaps enjoy a sunset dinner at one of the harbour side restaurants/bars before returning to the city via ferry at your leisure/cost. Alternatively, your guide will drive you back to the city via Spit Bridge, Balmoral Beach and back roads through the exclusive and quaint north shore suburbs of Mosman, Cremorne and Neutral Bay to arrive back approximately 5.00-5.30pm.
