The Christmas holiday trike tour was organised via a travel agent. Our passengers are Swiss and in Sydney for a holiday.
Our trike rider Steve, picked them up from their hotel in the city.
Sydney Harbour Bridge
Firstly, they rode over the Sydney Harbour Bridge. 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.
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 Harley birthday celebration tour is a lot of fun, showing some beautiful scenes of Sydney.
Next, they rode back over the Sydney Harbour Bridge and through the inner eastern suburb of Woolloomoolloo. Past the famous Harry Cafe De Wheels and into Kings Cross. Harry’s Café de Wheels has been serving customers for over 80 years. They make delicious pies, hotdogs and more.
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).

After there, they headed east through the posh suburbs of the eastern suburbs of Sydney, including the Bays: Rose Bay, Double Bay and Rushcutters Bay.
Watsons Bay and The Gap
North through some upper class suburbs, they rode to “The Gap” and stopped for photos. The view towards North Head and out to the South Pacific Ocean. Watsons Bay sits on the end of the South Head peninsula. This is where the photo was taken. So far, the Christmas holiday trike tour was a lot of fun and very scenic.
North Bondi and Brighton Lookout
There are a couple of lookouts at the North Bondi headland. They all offer beautiful views of Bondi Beach and out to the Tasman Sea, part of the South Pacific Ocean. Fred stopped there for a few photos and so they could admire the view.
Next, they drove past the world famous Bondi Beach to the south side. Looking from the two ends of the beach give a different perspective. This is the beach where Bondi Lifeguards of the Bondi Rescue TV series is filmed. 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.
However, the 1.5 hours was almost up so Steve turned around and took them back to their hotel. The Christmas holiday trike tour was a huge success, judging by their smiles.
