Such an interesting tour! Max has a real gift in delivering great interesting information! We went to areas I’d never been before, little back alleys, narrow corridors opening into such rich historical hideaways! Gems dripping into emotion and wonder! Max certainly delivered much more than...More

Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with
energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise
buildings and after-work drink places, high-end
shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners
frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a
dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit
the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle,
reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens
