Sydney History Walking Tours
Our Sydney History Walking Tours
Our history walking tours all start at a train station in the Sydney city centre. Each walking tour has been researched and designed by a Sydney-based historian and archaeologist who specialises in Sydney’s amazing past. Our history walking tours take you off the tourist tracks and away from the tourist traps. You instead traverse back streets, and hidden lanes and explore secret neighbourhoods. Best of all, we don’t use tired old scripts, we prefer to customise the tours to suit the interests of each group. It is the best way to discover the Sydney of the locals.
