Take the least-walked path through Sydney and get to know it from a truly local point of view. Walk along the blue line that represents Australia's colonization and the birth of modern Sydney.

  • Stroll through Sydney via a hidden trail
  • Learn about the birth and development of modern Australia
  • See Sydney's major sights including the Opera House, Harbour Bridge, Angel Place, Parliament House, the Mint and the Barracks


Experience Sydney from a different perspective. Explore all the city icons, like The Rocks, Sydney Harbor Bridge, and the Sydney Opera House, but explore them in a way most tourists don't. We'll take the least-walked path through Sydney and meander through this fascinating city's tumultuous history and into the modern day.

"The Tank Stream" originally provided fresh water and all kinds of food for the Aboriginal People, the Cardigal, prior to British colonization. When the British arrived, they saw the importance of the stream and took it for their own. Australia as we know it effectively developed along this water supply. The Tank Stream is now represented by a blue line painted on the ground that meanders through the city.

This Sydney walking tour makes its way along the blue line, through to Hyde Park, retracing the steps that saw a small stream become the life source for a new country. We'll hit up the major sights, including the Opera House, Harbour Bridge, Angel Place, Parliament House, the Mint, and the Barracks, but in a way you wouldn't experience on your own. This Sydney tour is a "warts and all" account of the birth of modern Australia and the legacies left from decisions made and the people who made them: those who won, those who lost, and everyone in between.

Experience Sydney from our local perspective, by checking out the major sights and learning the city's history without feeling like a tourist. This Sydney tour is factual, funny, irreverent, and anecdotal - a great local experience!
