    Walking Tour Around Sydney

    A great way to appreciate the sights around Sydney is by taking a pleasant stroll around its environs. There is a lot to do and see around Sydney, its harbour district, the well-maintained parklands and its iconic buildings.

    The main tourist locations are in the centre of Sydney and can easily be reached during a days gentle wandering around the streets and roads. The majority of attractions are free but the occasional sight may charge. Sydney is a reasonably flat city with only modest slopes and there are plenty of locations to stop off for a drink or bite to eat during the trip. See also the following ideas for five free things to do in the city.

    The Walking Tour

    Sydney Town Hall, Sydney Square is a great starting point for most walks; its central location is where many locals meet, the bus depot is here as well as the Town Hall train station.  From Sydney Square you can head off in a number of different directions in search of adventure. The Town Hall has an impressive interior complete with a lovely pipe organ.

    Across Sydney Square is the entrance to St Andrew’s Cathedral, once you have had a good look around leave by the side exit and walk up Bathurst Street to Hyde Park. As you cross over Elizabeth Street you pass the Obelisk and on into the park.

    In Hyde Park you will discover the ANZAC Memorial, entering on the ground floor where there is a staircase that leads into the Chamber of the Eternal Flame and from here you leave through the main entrance, down the stairs and past the reflecting pool.

    To the right is the Australian Museum, which if time allows is well worth a visit, here there are exhibits and displays that cover the natural science, indigenous species and cultural events from all over Australia.

    Continuing through the park you will leave at Park Street and head for Archibald Fountain, here you turn eastwards and head towards St Mary’s Cathedral. After you have looked around this unique cathedral head out via the gift shop towards Macquarie Street and the Hyde Park Barracks, Sydney’s main male prison until 1848.

    Continuing along Macquarie Street you will pass St James’s Church and Queen Victoria’s Statue. A little further on you will reach Martin Place, a magnificent open space and a perfect place to take a breather. Parliament House is next and here they offer free tours, then you’ll reach the State Library and discover for yourself the magnificent old reading room deep in the bowels of the building.

    Cross the road into The Domain sports fields, this is where you will find the Art Gallery of New South Wales following Mrs Macquaries road into the Royal Botanical Gardens. This is an excellent place to explore, relax and have a picnic. From this point you can walk up to Mrs Macquires Chair a large sandstone bench cut into the rock. Alternatively follow the harbour wall all the way round the coastline and get a marvellous view as you approach the Sydney Opera House.
