See The Historical Sights of Sydney
As you embark on this self-guided adventure, you'll start in the lush Hyde Park, where the city's history unfolds in front of us. Discover the intriguing past of the nearby Barracks, Rum Hospital and Martin Place, home to many of Sydney and Australias financial institutions. While exploring down into The Rocks and Circular Quay, you'll get a glimpse into the city's colonial history and waterfront beauty.
Join us for a memorable day of exploration, learning, and problem-solving as you discover the beauty and intrigue of Sydney's most iconic landmarks. Experience the city in a whole new way with our free walking tour – it's an adventure you won't want to miss!
Escape-Room Style Puzzles to Solve
As you explore, you will also solve puzzles, that will encourage you to interact with your surroundings as well as reveal fantastic views of the city and the harbour. It might be finding secret text in a statue, decoding text from a memorial plaque, or looking around the heritage-listed sites to figure out what items are missing - only you can solve them!
Note that puzzles range in difficulty just like an indoor escape room, so are suitable for both teenagers (7 and up) and adults.
Accessible through our Mobile App
Our tours are easy to use and accessed through the app (both Apple or Android compatible). You can pause/resume the tour as you please if you stop to explore or grab a bite to eat.
Is the tour really free? Not even tips?
Yes, that's right, completely free. Because our tours are delivered via our mobile app, there is no guide to tip. No tips, no gratuities, nothing. Just Sydney's best free tour.
This tour is free so that people can see Sydney, and get a taste of what a tour with Unlocked Tours is like. Don't worry, this tour still has the audiobook-quality commentary and outdoor escape-room puzzles that we are famous for. We're so confident you'll love this tour, that you will be back to do more tours with us!
What's the difference between this free tour and your paid tours?
This tour is a purely digital experience (it is delivered via app only), whereas our other tours have a physical component to them as well, through our tour booklets, puzzle tools, postcards, pencil etc.
Because of this limitation, the commentary and puzzles on this tour are a little bit less sophisticated than our other tours - this is still the best free tour in Sydney, but our other tours are a step above, with more detailed commentary, more voice actors and sound effects, and more advanced puzzles (and more of them!)

I loved this tour , the puzzles were something new to me and I really liked them.
It gives a lot of information, it is easy to follow and you can do it at your own pace.
A perfect Sydney Spring day. Found out more information about our history here in our beautiful harbour city which was wonderful. Just a great day. Thank you
Our other free tour got cancelled last minute and we found this one on Google, and was pleasantly surprised we could download the app and start it immediately. Had a great time, commentary was interesting, puzzles were fun, and best part was no cancellations! :)
We were going to do one of the Im Free walking tours, but didn't realise we had to tip at the end. This was perfect because it was delivered from the app, and the puzzles were an added bonus. Definitely recommended
We didn't know tours like this existed with puzzles and audio, so we did the free one then ended up booking the harbour bridge tour also. Heaps of fun, have told our friends about it too
