When it comes to exploring a city it is hard to beat walking. You see so much more when you walk through a district, than you do when zooming past in a vehicle. When walking, you can really enjoy the ambience and see little details that you would otherwise miss. You can stop in at quaint little shops or cafes along the way. Explore the city at your own pace.
For that reason we have put together five self-guided Sydney walking tours for you. Each tour is fully described on its own page which can be accessed by clicking on the corresponding links below.
You can also choose from a diverse selection of fully guided walking or biking tours that can pre-booked to guarantee your spot.
Sydney City Highlights Walking Tour - 10 kms
Sydney Highlights Walking Tour Our 10 kilometre Sydney Highlights Walking Tour is a great way to get an overview of Sydney at the start of your vacation.

Sydney Harbourfront Walking Tour - 10 kms
Sydney Harbourfront Walk Our harbourfront walking tour also takes you past numerous iconic Sydney Landmarks as you explore a total of 5 bays and coves along Sydney's world renowned harbour. If this 10 kilometre walk is a little too long for you, you can just do a portion of it.
Sydney Harbour Bridge Walk - 3 kms
Sydney Harbour Bridge Walk Sydney's famous Harbour Bridge has a walking path along the eastern side that offers some spectacular views of Sydney Harbour from above. You can also visit the Pylon Museum located in the southeast Pylon on the bridge for even more amazing views, along with information about the history of this very significant bridge.
