This fascinating five hour tour combines a drive through Sydney's exclusive harbour neighborhoods and a two hour walk along its pretty eastern coastline.
Your day starts from your hotel at 8:30am with a drive through the city to the southern harbour area. Take an in-depth look at Sydney Harbour's idyllic inlets, beautiful bays and cute coves that are dotted with multi-million dollar properties, sailing boats and yacht clubs.
Peruse the ritzy areas of Woolloomooloo, Rushcutters Bay, Darling Point, Double Bay and Rose Bay before stopping for a morning tea/ coffee and cookie stop at an historic 'local' harbour beach. Here you will have a chance to dip your toes into the water.
From here we'll continue our drive to the elegant waterfront village of Vaucluse and quaint Watson's Bay before a panoramic photo stop of Sydney Harbour's imposing North Head.
Just up the road is Bondi Beach - Australia's most famous strip of sand jam-packed with surfers, gym junkies, laid-back international travelers and its own reality TV show starring Bondi's professional lifeguards.
From here we commence a one and a half to two hour coastal stroll to Clovelly Beach. The cliff side pathway winds its way up, down and around jagged outcrops, seaside enclaves and sandy beaches. Enjoy endless vistas of the Pacific Ocean with a chance of spotting migratory whales between May and November or the 'Sculptures By The Sea' in October to November.
Tamarama, affectionately nicknamed Glamourama is the 'place to be seen'. Hurdle the sunbathers and wannabe trend setters.
Around the next bend is Bronte Beach home to some of Sydney's biggest waves. If the surf's up this is a great spot for spectating some daring board riding action, set after set.
Walk via Waverley Cemetery's Victorian and Edwardian monuments and look out for Australia's most famous poet, Henry Lawson's grave.
Our final stretch is via the Clovelly Lawn Bowls Club to Clovelly Beach for a well deserved lunch overlooking the water. Return to your hotel through colonial Centennial Park and snazzy Paddington.
Walk is approximately 4.5kms and is relatively easy with some sections of stairs. The two hour duration is designed to allow ample stopping time for photos. There are three restroom/ toilet amenities spaced out along the walk.
