What an outstanding tour, informative and enjoyable in equal measure. We took the Utzon tour on a Saturday morning. There were only six of us and Eoghan, an unlikely mix of guide, architect and raconteur, kept us enthralled throughout. Three hours flew by. We learnt...More

Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with
energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise
buildings and after-work drink places, high-end
shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners
frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a
dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit
the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle,
reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens
