Venture towards the iconic coastline and weave your way through the picturesque Eastern suburbs, from Bondi Beach to Tamarama to Bronte Beach. Get a true feel for the famous Australian surf and swim culture. Stroll along beautiful Bronte Beach, bursting with history and amazing viewpoints for seasonal whale watching. Stop here to have a latte, juice and maybe some local baked goods.

Next up is a visit to a gallery – choose between an authentic Aboriginal art gallery or Aquabumps, a local photographic gallery celebrating Australian coastline photography.

At Manly Wine you get gourmet seafood with ocean views of Manly on your Sydney private day tour

North Shore

Next drive across the Sydney Harbour Bridge taking in the charming suburbs of Mosman, The Spit, Middle Harbour and finally Manly.

For lunch, head to the gorgeous Manly Beach where you will be absolutely spoilt for choice. We can make a reservation for you in advance at a great little spot tucked away at the south end of the beach or perhaps you would prefer fish and chips on the beach – the choice is yours!

Check out a few scenic spots on the way back to your accommodation.
