  • Learn about the evolution of Sydney from a penal colony to a modern metropolis
  • Follow a route along charming walkways and grungy service lanes
Take a walk around Sydney with a local ringer and discover the hidden secrets of this picturesque city. See the highlights of Sydney as you experience more than 200 years of history come to life. Follow the least-walked path through this charming city.
What to Expect
Sydney was settled around a freshwater stream that formed the back boundary of properties along the earliest main streets, and a series of informal paths provided rear access to gardens, stables and storage areas. In time, these lane ways became formalized, oblivious to any planner’s grid.

Other laneways developed to provide access to the rear of commercial buildings that came to dominate the area. Charming walkways or grungy service lanes, today they contribute complexity to the tapestry of the city.

Discover Sydney’s hidden sights on this 2-hour walking tour along the historic Tank Stream. Hear the bizarre backstories and incredible history of the city as you take the least-walked path through downtown Sydney.

Experience the city from a local perspective by checking out the major sights and learning about the city without feeling like a tourist. This Sydney tour is factual, funny, irreverent, and anecdotal. See all the city icons, including The Rocks, Sydney Harbor Bridge and the Sydney Opera House, but explore them in a way most tourists don’t.

Walk along narrow lanes such as Palings Lane, which despite its very contemporary feeling, has been around for a long time. You’ll end your walk by following in the footsteps of the 19th-century working-class man through The Rocks district.
