The Sydney Highlights is a great introduction to Sydney and Australia. It is a scenic walk from the middle of the Sydney Harbour Bridge to the Opera House. This self-guided tour of Sydney takes approx 3 hours with entertaining commentary, challenging puzzles, and stunning views of the harbour along the way.

Listen to the stories of Sydney and the Harbour

Our famous audiobook-quality commentary will reveal the fascinating stories of Sydney Harbour and Australia, including how the British sent their convicts to settle here, stories of the criminals and gangs of The Rocks, how the indigenous Aboriginal people have inhabited this land for tens of thousands of years, or how the Opera House has hosted some of the most famous performers in the world. 

This self-guided audio+puzzle tour of Sydney Harbour and surrounds is an entertaining and informative way to explore at your own pace. You will receive printed tour booklets and access to our mobile app, and together they will guide you to discover the hidden sights and rich history of Sydney.

Outdoor 'escape-room' style puzzles

As you explore, you will also solve puzzles which will encourage you to interact with your surroundings throughout the tour. It might be deciphering the secret codes hidden on the Harbour Bridge, uncovering concealed patterns in The Rocks, or figuring out the hidden messages on regular street signs! 

Note that puzzles range in difficulty (just like a regular escape room), so they are suitable for both teenagers (8 and up) and adults.

    A perfect way to see Sydney. Completed it while shopping, sight seeing and dining. Such a great concept, highly recommend it.

    Great historical commentary

    We did the Sydney Highlights tour and thoroughly enjoyed the commentary, it went into just enough detail and gave some entertaining stories of convicts, Aboriginal culture and the Opera House. The puzzles were fun, albeit challenging for some of us - we used the hints to finish some of them off. The bits of music and sound effects etc really made the tour very engaging. Will try and do the bridge one next time

    Very informative and engaging.

    My partner and I took this tour recently and although we have both lived in Sydney our whole lives we were learning a lot along the way. The Puzzles have a good range of difficulty which encourage you to look at your surroundings more in-depth than usual, often finding interesting details of the historical sites you would have looked over otherwise. It is safe to say that both of us are looking forward to the release of more tours!

    Recommended for anyone coming in Sydney and after a historical summary

    This tour gives you a fascinating look into how Sydney developed over time. It's packed with information, visuals, and interesting stories that keep you engaged. The app does a great job of explaining everything. I recommend this tour to anyone visiting Sydney to get a sense of its history and how it became the busy city it is today. We took a few hours to do it at a slow pace. Just keep in mind that there are some steps. Our group had no trouble hearing thanks to using headphones as recommended.

    Great introduction to exploring Sydney

    Informative commentary and breathtaking views. I'm a local but never get sick of exploring the harbour, and learnt a few interesting things on the tour too. Lots of fun
