Escape the Ordinary & Experience the relaxed Sydney Beach Culture on our Northern Beaches Private day Tour!

Visit the Northern Peninsula villages of Palm Beach, Avalon and Newport. Then explore the Bushland regions of Pittwater, Ku Ring Gai National Park and Brisbane Waters National Park on a Historic River Boat Ferry.

The round-trip River Boat will take you to exclusive, little-known beaches and bays only accessible by boat including Currawong Beach & Mackerel Beach – long-time favourite ‘hidden’ holiday spots for generations of locals!

You will also visit Manly Beach, close to Sydney city and very popular with locals and tourists wanting to enjoy the golden and beach vibe.

The tour starts in Sydney’s CBD where you will be driven across the iconic Sydney Harbour Bridge to the North Shore, stopping at fabulous vantage points looking back across the harbour to the Sydney Opera
House. From there the tour will weave all the way up the north shore coastline to the exclusive Palm Beach where many Australian and International celebrities have holiday retreats.

You won’t feel rushed on this tour, there will be plenty of time for a stroll along the waterfront and perhaps get your feet wet in the pristine water. We will provide a picnic morning tea for you to enjoy on the waterfront while you take in the Ocean and Pittwater views including the prominent Barrenjoey Light House. At the exclusive Palm Beach there will be time for you to browse in some of the beautiful shops and boutiques if choose to.

There will be several options for lunch at one of the fabulous Northern Beaches restaurants offering some of the finest Australian produce or you might prefer freshly caught fish & chips to enjoy on the beach front.
