Forbidden Sydney guided walking tour

Sydney is one of the world’s great gay and lesbian cities — with plenty of stories waiting for you to uncover. Learn about the gay governor of New South Wales whose conduct scandalised the British Empire, the gay bushranger who was hanged at Darlinghurst Gaol, and the “most violent woman in Sydney,” a tough lesbian criminal who carried a knuckleduster in her handbag and stole male gangsters’ girlfriends.Starting out at Hyde Park Barracks, you’ll explore the eastern part of the city near Hyde Park and the Botanical Gardens before your Sydney tour heads toward the bright lights of the gay strip on Oxford Street. Your local guide will share dark tales of organised crime, corrupt cops, murder, and Oxford Street’s ultimate transformation into the centre of gay life in Sydney in the 1970s, and, of course, a tour of gay and lesbian Sydney wouldn’t be complete without a look at the city’s famous Mardi Gras — how it started, why it began, and how it’s become one of the largest events on Sydney’s festival calendar.

The tour finishes at a friendly gay pub where you’ll have a drink on us, rub shoulders with locals, and see why Sydney is one of the friendliest gay and lesbian cities in the world.This tour is designed for everyone — gay, lesbian, or straight. So don’t worry, no matter who you are or how you identify, you’ll be welcomed!

Sydney with conviction walking tour

Experience Sydney from a local perspective (which, let’s face it, is the best perspective imaginable!). Explore all the city icons, like The Rocks, Sydney Harbour Bridge, and the Sydney Opera House, but explore them in a way most tourists don’t. We’ll take the least-walked path on this Sydney walking tour, and meander through this fascinating city’s tumultuous history and into the modern day.This historic Sydney tour makes its way along “The Tank Stream”, the blue line that runs through the city (you’ll find out what this line means on the tour!). We’ll go through Hyde Park, retracing the steps that saw a small stream become the life source for a new country. We’ll hit up the major sights, including the Opera House, Harbour Bridge, Angel Place, Parliament House, the Mint, and the Barracks, but in a way you wouldn’t experience on your own.

This Sydney tour is a warts and all account of the birth of modern Australia and the legacies left from decisions made and the people who made them: those who won, those who lost, and everyone in between. Factual, funny, irreverent, and anecdotal – this Sydney walking tour is a great local experience packed full of Sydney history!

Walking and food tasting tour of Sydney

This food and drink tour of Sydney will give you a taste of what the city has to offer: over the course of the evening, in a small group, you will visit three different small bars, all tucked away in basements, back alleys, old horse-cart carriageways, loading docks, and other hard-to-find corners. We’ll spend about 45 minutes in each venue, giving you plenty of time to sample some snacks and/or enjoy a drink and it’s rarely the same thing twice! We might be treated to speciality pizza one time or tapas or dumplings another time, washed down with maybe a glass of mulled wine in winter or sangria in summer. Come with an open mind for whatever’s placed in front of you! In between stops, you’ll be guided along some of Sydney’s most interesting streets, where you can discover other venues, see fantastic street art, spy intriguing spaces, and learn where the locals really go after work hours. We’ll start our tour at the glass dome in Wynyard Park and end in the Kent Street area, after three hours of exploring the city centre via the nooks and crannies hidden away in downtown Sydney.
