Michelle and Mike had seen a trike doing tours in Western Australia. They had always remembered how much fun it looked. Finally, they decided to look into doing a tour. Troll Tours had the best website in Sydney, they thought, so booked the tour with us. Now they can put a tick next to the trike tour wish list!
Our Chopper 4 trike rider picked them up from their hotel in Darling Harbour.
Sydney Harbour Bridge
Firstly, they rode over the famous Sydney Harbour Bridge. As they rode over it, we always tell our passengers to look up and enjoy the unique view. The more than 6,000,000 rivets are so interesting and the arch is so iconic. It’s nicknamed ‘The Coathanger’ because of its arch-based design. It is the largest steel arch bridge in the world.
Next, they rode past Kirribilli House. Kirribilli House is the secondary official residence of the Prime Minister of Australia. After that, they rode around the corner to 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. A perfect place to stop for photos.
The Kirribilli Loop
They rode under the north side of the bridge and continued on their tour. The underside of the northern end of the SHB – Sydney Harbour Bridge – is very interesting. The Kirribilli Loop was finished by riding past Luna Park and the North Sydney Olympic Pool.
Blues Point Reserve
Continuing on, they rode on through Milsons Point, did a left hand turn and rode up a few streets. This lead to Blues Point Reserve. The views over Blues Bay towards the Sydney Opera House, the Harbour Bridge and the CBD are just stunning. All the more stunning because of the lovely weather. Another perfect place for photos. So far, the trike tour wish list was worth the wait. Our passengers are loving it.
Mrs Macquarie’s Point
Then it was back over the Sydney Harbour Bridge, past the Allen C Lewis Fountain, past the Royal Botanical Gardens to Mrs Macquarie’s Point. 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.
Then they rode back along Mrs Macquaries Road and past the wonderful Art Gallery of NSW. The Art Gallery of New South Wales, was founded as the New South Wales Academy of Art in 1872. It was also known as the National Art Gallery of New South Wales between 1883 and 1958.
However, the 1.5 hours was almost up so Fred turned around and took them back through Sydney city to their hotel. The trike tour wish list is back on the list again! They’d love to do another.
Thank you so much for the photos, we had a great time and Fred was a great guide. Just wished we had taken the tour when we arrived, rather than leaving!
I will write a review and all good to post photos.Thanks again!
