Sydney's Secrets - Nature and Wildlife Day is for visitors who’ve already ticked off the ‘bucket-list’ sites of the city and are ready for something fresh and authentic, closer to nature and away from the masses…
I’m sure you’ve noticed that Sydney Guided Tours is unlike any other tour operator in Sydney. I take you to places that aren’t on traditional tourist paths.
My goal is to show you what "Sydneysiders" get up to in their time off, often in the stunning natural environments located just outside of Sydney.
As a volunteer site monitor with the Aboriginal Heritage Office, I've been trained to locate, monitor and report on the condition of Aboriginal sites.
As a born and bred Sydney local who is passionate about our natural landscape, flora and fauna, I’ve spent my weekends and holidays discovering the hidden jewels located on the other side of Sydney. I’d like to share them with you.
I respect that your holiday time in Sydney is precious and that you want to have an authentic Sydney experience!
So, here’s what you won’t do on my tour:
- wait in line with hordes of tourists
- sit forever in traffic
- drive for hours to distant locations - just to look at sites!
As a professional photographer and videographer, I’m passionate about documenting Sydney’s natural treasures. I’d love to help you capture your best shots too!
Let me introduce you to my
good friends at Walkabout Park
My tour visits this fabulous Australian wildlife park. It's also just up the road from my home :)
This is a place where you can immerse yourself in the animals' world and go “walkabout” with the friendliest wildlife in Australia.
The park was established to protect animals that come into care, breed endangered animals for release back into the wild and to provide an experiential learning space.
Exploring and documenting Sydney's natural environment is my biggest passion
Many of the areas we visit are rich in Aboriginal history. As a volunteer site monitor with the Aboriginal Heritage Office, I spend spare time discovering new sites and making sure these aren't vandalised.
A few Aboriginal paintings and carvings are on my tour.
I recognise the unique position of Aboriginal people in Australian culture and history and have a deep respect for Aboriginal people.
I'd love to chat with you! Please leave a message below if you have any questions.
