Experience Sydney’s historical past as you take in major sights on this 2-3 hour factual, funny and great local tour. Explore Sydney’s hidden secrets as you discover over 200-years of history in this picturesque city.

Start your tour on Pitt Street and head head towards Phillip Lane. Established in the 1840’s, Phillip Lane is now one of the last remaining lane-ways built to service Macquarie Street Houses. Enjoy a soft drink while you take in the history of this lane-way, thought to have been the inspiration behind Patterson’s famous poem ‘Clancy of the Overflow’.

Next, discover Sydney’s Tank Stream, a stream of fresh water emptied into Sydney Cove originally created by the convicts to ensure adequate water supply. Silently running through a city drain below the pavement of the Tank Stream way, you’ll discover the history of this creation.

Continue on your tour through narrow lane-ways such as Palings Lane, a contemporary but historical lane before ending your tour in the Rocks district as you discover the history of the nineteenth century working-class man and the Sydney Harbour Bridge.
