Sydney sightseeing tours - an interview with Matt

Updated: Oct 12


Lots of Sydney sightseeing tours barely scratch the surface of this diverse city - there’s so much to see and do. However, there’s one tour that covers just about everything in one day.


This video is from an interview between Matt, the founder of Sydney Guided Tours and Charles Odom, the founder of Painted Circle, an ethical travel company.


Matt is an expert local Sydney guide who has devised the ultimate one day tour, The NATURE AND WILDLIFE BIG DAY OUT.


This video explores the who, what why, how and where of Matt’s tour.


On this tour you can discover the very best of Australian beaches, forests, coastlines, plants and animals within a day, away from the usual tourist trail.


Pat kangaroos and emus at a wildlife sanctuary set in a natural environment. Cool off under a waterfall or just relax in the lush rain forest with a bottle of complimentary local wine and chocolate.


Experience an easy, 40-minute bush walk above untouched picturesque valleys. Learn all about our plants and animals. Look for ancient Aboriginal carvings - unknown to locals!


Walk along pristine beaches and headlands, explore tide pools teeming with marine life and look for fish in crystal clear water. The giant pelicans are always a family favourite!


Have a gourmet lunch at an award-winning, waterfront restaurant.


Get your prized Sydney Harbour Bridge and Opera House photo from Mrs Macquarie's Chair. On the way home, take a sunset shot from across the harbour.


Optional bonus stops:


- visit a boutique winery with a wide array of botanical wines

- visit a gin distillery where the finest spirits are produced

- sample delicious oysters and visit NSW's only pearl farm


Arrive back at your hotel, exhausted but happy that you have had the ultimate Australian nature experience!
