Ali and John are holidaying from the UK. They decided there was no better way to see Sydney than to do a city viewers trike tour. We have to agree!
Our trike rider Brian, picked them up from Circular Quay. We emailed them a map and instructions on where to meet. It’s really easy to find us.
Firstly they rode straight to the famous Bondi Beach. Here they stopped for photos and why not with this view! Behind our passengers, in this photo, is the world famous tower of the Bondi Lifeguards of the Bondi Rescue TV series. They stopped at the famous Bondi Beach for photos, when in Sydney it is one of the places you should visit. The beach is seriously nice (but not our favourite) and we usually stop near the lifeguard station, made famous by the TV series “Bondi Rescue”. Bondi Beach is one of the most visited tourist sites in Australia. Bondi Beach is recorded by the Australian Museum that Bondi means place where a fight using boondi sticks (nullas nullas or fighting sticks) took place.
After there, they headed west through the posh suburbs of the eastern suburbs of Sydney, including the Bays: Rose Bay, Double Bay and Rushcutters Bay. Continuing on, they rode through the infamous Kings Cross, though it has calmed down a lot since it’s heyday – home of the famous and huge Coca Cola sign. Kings Cross is also home to nightclubs and ladies of the night though it is not nearly as raunchy as it was in the 1970s (apparently). Next, they rode through the inner eastern suburb of Woolloomoolloo and past the famous Harry Cafe De Wheels. Harry’s Café de Wheels has been serving customers for over 80 years. They make delicious pies, hotdogs and more. So far, the city viewers trike tour was a lot of fun.
Mrs Macquarie’s Point
Past the Royal Botanical Gardens to Mrs Macquarie’s Point was next. It has beautiful views looking west towards the Sydney Opera House and the Sydney Harbour Bridge. They ride past Mrs Macquarie’s Chair. Mrs Macquarie’s Chair is an exposed sandstone rock cut into the shape of a bench, on a peninsula in Sydney Harbour. It was hand carved by convicts in 1810, for Elizabeth Macquarie, the wife of Major-General Lachlan Macquarie, Governor of NSW.
However, the 1 hour tour was almost up so Brian dropped them off at the Royal Botanical Gardens. From here they could continue exploring Sydney. In conclusion, the city viewers trike tour was a huge success. Ali wrote to us:
Ali recommends Troll Tours: “What a great trip out. Straight to Bondi, then back along the coast through Rose Bay, Double Bay and Kings Cross. Finished up at the Botanical Gardens, but plenty of stops along the way for beautiful views, fascinating bits of info from our driver Brian, and some photo ops. A great way to see Sydney, highly recommended.”
