A short 45-minute drive and you’re already in the surprisingly wild countryside on the edge of Sydney, driving through scenic valleys of the Berowra Valley and Kuring Gai Chase National Parks..

This is an "immersive experience tour". An easy 30-minute bush walk, overlooking picturesque valleys where we discover ancient Aboriginal engravings and a mysterious unidentified engraving. Many Sydney locals don't know about these!

Get up close and personal with koalas, kangaroos and emus in their natural settings! The wildlife park we visit successfully mimics the natural environment of these fascinating creatures, making this experience feel far less like a zoo and more like ‘a walk on the wild side’.

Our first beach of the day! Lifeguards patrol Umina Beach and young Nippers (life saving cadets) train here, right in front of the clubhouse. Then a quick stroll through the beautiful beach-side village of Pearl Beach. The appearance to most visitors of this village is one of bushland with houses rather than the expected opposite.

Feeling thirsty? We drop in for a refresher at the Mediterranean-styled Boathouse Hotel. Located in the idyllic coastal town of Patonga, surrounded by the Hawkesbury and Brisbane Waters National Park.

Lunch is at the stunning waterfront Woy Woy Fishermans Wharf restaurant overlooking beautiful mangroves. Dine on award-winning local seafood. Our guests receive 10% off all meals and premium seating. The Central Coast's premier seafood market is right next door. It's also where you can browse the local sustainably-sourced, catches-of-the-day…

Beautiful Avoca Headland - the real surfers paradise! Walk along the pristine beaches and headlands. Chat with local surfers and fishermen, or have a look for fish in crystal clear sea pools. Don't forget to bring your swimming costume if it's a warm day!

A quick stop at a boutique distillery where an array of award-winning spirits and liqueurs are produced. Many of the ingredients are sourced from the flowers, fruits and herbs plucked straight from the distillery's amazing "fragrant garden". Wednesdays - Sundays only.

The majestic Hawkesbury River is our last detour for the day. Visit a local oyster farm supplying produce straight from the source (Wednesdays - Sundays). Sit back and watch the sun setting over the waterways, sampling oysters and prawns. Right next door is the only pearl producer in New South Wales. These Akoya pearls are of exceptionally high quality, are rare, and are believed to be premium on the global market today.
OPTIONAL BONUS STOPS - The iconic Mrs Macquarie's Chair: the best vantage point to view the Sydney Harbour Bridge and the Opera House. The chair was carved out of rock by convicts in 1810. Make sure you see the REAL chair not the fake that's shown to unsuspecting visitors! Sydney’s best pie: the internationally acclaimed Harry's Cafe De Wheels is an iconic pie cart situated near Woolloomooloo naval dockyard. Countless celebrities have eaten here during its 75 years in business.

  • Entrance fees into the wildlife sanctuary
  • 10% off lunch at Woy Woy Fishermans Wharf, with premium seating

Nice to get out

"I’d already done the sights in Sydney. Pretty but crowded. Heading up the coast with Matt was a refreshing change and def my best day in (or around) Sydney. Great experience with local animals, awesome food and a walk along ocean cliffs in Avoca."

The other Australia
"There is so much more to experience and explore just outside of the city. Berowra and the surrounding area is stunning. The beach at Avoca is beautiful and interesting with its little rock pools. Matt's knowledge and friendly disposition contributed to a great day out."
