    Stop At: Paddington, Paddington, New South Wales

    The Eastern Suburbs – The Drive to Bondi Beach
    In Paddington we’ll introduce you to one of Sydney’s loveliest residential neighbourhoods. Here the narrow streets are lined with immaculately maintained Victorian terrace houses replete with wrought iron lacework reminiscent of New Orleans. In the commercial areas, we’ll point out the charming pubs and cafes intermixed with high-end clothing boutiques and art galleries.

    The Paddington Markets are a mainstay of the community. If you are with us for a longer tour on a Saturday, we can pop in and have a look at the stalls selling clothes, crafts, and food. Or we’d be happy to drop you here at the end of the tour if we begin early enough.

    We’ll do a half-loop through Sydney’s sprawling, green oasis – Centennial Park – as we head for the beach suburbs of Bronte, Tamarama, and Bondi.

    Otherwise we’ll park at Bondi and have time for a stroll along the esplanade, perhaps a quick dip in the ocean, and, on a longer tour – Bondi offers a wealth of lunch options.

We can take in the sparkling seas and sandstone cliffs of Diamond Bay, visit The Gap in Watson’s Bay, and enjoy a stroll around South Head for views of the full expanse of Sydney Harbour and across to Manly.

    Watson’s Bay also offers some excellent lunch options – notably Doyle’s Seafood Restaurant (for a proper sit-down meal) or their fish and chip take away, had as a picnic in Robertson Park.

    If you’d like to return to the city on the ferry from here, we can walk you to the wharf and help sort out your ticket. It’s a beautiful ride, stopping at Rose Bay, and delivering you to Circular Quay.
