Pip bought Dave a North Shore Skimmer tours Gift Voucher for his birthday. They chose Valentine’s Day to do the tour, how romantic!
Our trike rider Craig, picked them up from Circular Quay. Riding through part of the city they ended up on the Sydney Harbour Bridge.
Sydney Harbour Bridge
Firstly, they rode over the famous Sydney Harbour Bridge. The view of the arches is fantastic without a metal roof over your head. More than 6,000,000 rivets were used to assemble the various plates on the bridge.
Next, they rode past Admiralty House which is the Sydney official residence of the Governor-General of Australia. After that they rode past the Prime Ministers mansion – Kirribilli House. It is the official Sydney residence of the Prime Minister of Australia.
Continuing around the corner they arrived at Jeffrey Street Wharf. From here, the views across Sydney Harbour towards the Sydney Opera House and the CBD are magnificent. In addition, it also has an up-close view of the side and underneath of the bridge. They also stopped for photos here.

Continuing north east, the rode through Cremorne, Mosman and down past the Zoo to Bradleys Head. Make sure you look for the koalas eating or sleeping in the gum trees.
Bradleys Head and Balmoral Beach
Similarly, Bradleys Head has wonderful views across Sydney Harbour to the Sydney Opera House, Harbour Bridge and the CBD. Continuing on, they rode past the lovely posh Balmoral Beach.
Crossing the Spit Bridge is always fun, with lovely views of Middle Harbour and hundreds of yachts. Riding further up the hill they rode into Seaforth and Clontarf.
However, time was just about up so Craig dropped the passengers off at Manly. They could continue the birthday celebrations at one of the many restaurants in Manly before catching a ferry back into town. In conclusion, the North Shore Skimmer tours was a big success and a birthday present Dave will never forget.
