They say Sydney’s North Shore starts in Manly – seven miles from the city but a thousand miles from a care in the world.

Road Tripping

Embark on an exclusive road trip along Sydney’s North Shore. From the city, head over the Sydney Harbour Bridge to the south end of Manly Beach.

Here walk the picturesque coastal stretch between Manly and Shelley Beach – home of the the Cabbage Tree Bay Aquatic Reserve.

Enjoy the pristine views out over the ocean and if you’re lucky you’ll meet some of the true locals – our peculiar water dragons.

Privileged Access

Drive to the North Head of Sydney Harbour. Here you’ll find small hikes and beach walks that will lead you to the most unassuming and serene places – local havens you will feel privileged to experience.

Think waterfalls, secluded beaches, military history and even a bandicoot refuge. All of this with the picturesque Sydney skyline in the far off distance.

This is the real Sydney. The stuff that makes this famous city so special.

An Afternoon – Your Way

For lunch, you will be spoilt for choice. Indulge in a 5 course degustation or a causal seafood lunch with a cold locally brewed beer or glass of chilled Riesling.

Spend the afternoon exploring neighbouring beaches, the stunning rock pools the Australian coastline is famous for and the dramatic sandstone headlands – perfect for spotting dolphins and humpback whales.

If you’re looking for a bit more immersion into the area, we suggest getting out on the water. We can organise a yacht to explore the area.

What our clients say

“We were told we must visit Freshwater Beach and PILU Restaurant when we get to Australia and Splendour Tailored Tours was the only private tour company that offered a tour that included both of these places. Our day was outstanding and we’re so glad we found Splendour. Our host Daniel made the day magical.”
