We think a Sydney day tour is one of the most exciting ways to spend a day on Planet Earth. You don’t even have to be a newcomer to explore the amazing natural and human-made wonders of one of the world’s great cities.
So from seaside trails to urban graffiti walks, the Opera House, world-class theatres, restaurants and beyond, there are Sydney tours to suit a casual tourist or local Sydneysider.
Let’s explore the best Sydney day tours:
1. Royal Botanic Gardens Sydney
If you’ve got 90 minutes to spare, some comfy shoes and a hankering for some Aboriginal history, you’ll love Sydney’s Royal Botanic Gardens.
Don’t forget your picnic blanket and keep your eyes out for a juicy Davidson plum amid the backdrop of sights as famous as the Opera House, Mrs. Macquarie’s Chair and the Harbour Bridge. But it’s Sydney’s Indigenous history that is really the focus, as you learn about what the incredible Gadigal people were up to prior to colonisation.
2. Sydney Bridge Climb Tour
What better way to take in Sydney than from 134 metres up? Even better is that your 440-foot vantage point will be atop one of the world’s most iconic landmarks.
The Bridge Climb takes just over 3 hours – and you can choose to do this iconic Sydney day tour at sunrise or sunset as well, for extra spectacular views. Those views of the harbour, the Blue Mountains and beyond are taken in with an intimate group of just 14, and with the help of an experienced guide.
3. Blue Mountains Day Tour
If Australia has a ‘Grand Canyon’, it’s the mesmerising Blue Mountains.
And if you want your Sydney tours in World Heritage-listed sites, this one is for you – because the scenery is more than spectacular. Explore beautiful green and blue mountains, deep gorges and some of the world’s most incredible and unique wildlife.
4. Hunter Valley Tour
Australia has some wonderful and world-famous winemaking regions, but none are as old as the Hunter Valley.
During one of the best day tours from Sydney, you’ll hop from one winery to the next as you take in some of the world’s greatest cellar doors. Get an intimate look at how Sydney winemakers create some of the best drops on earth with a Hunter Valley wine tour in a private limousine.
5. Whale Watching Tour
Whale watching is on just about every ‘bucket list’ ever written – and luckily its one of the day tours Sydney does best!
Set aside a half or full day and you’re almost guaranteed some unbelievable whale sights on the incredible Pacific Ocean. The spectacular cliffs at Sydney Heads are also worth seeing, as you make your way to hang out with whales in their very own habitat.
6. Private Limo Tour
But for the ultimate Sydney tour, you’ll want to visit just about every sight of this magnificent city – in private, luxury style.
How does a complimentary bottle of Champagne sound as you sit back and tour not just Sydney’s most iconic landmarks, but unforgettable destinations like Cockle Bay, Hyde Park, Bondi Beach and beyond? Better still, you can fully tailor your luxury, chauffeur-driven experience to suit the tastes, desires and bucket lists of up to 14 guests with a private Sydney limo hire!
