Select Date and Travelers
2 travelers
Explore Sydney and Bondi Beach on this hop-on hop-off sightseeing tour, which takes you by double-decker bus to 34 stops around the city including Sydney Opera House, Sydney Harbour Bridge, Darling Harbour, Bondi Beach and more. Enjoy unobstructed views and recorded commentary on board. Simply hop off to walk around and sightsee in depth. Your ticket is valid for 24 or 48 hours, so you can experience Sydney and Bondi's most noteworthy attractions, sights, and shopping and dining areas at your own pace.
  • Convenient hop-on hop-off transportation on an open-top double-decker bus
  • 34 stops around the city including Sydney Harbour, Bondi Beach, and Darling Harbour
  • Onboard audio commentary ensures you don’t miss anything
  • Buses depart every 15-20 minutes on the city route, or every 30 minutes on the Bondi route: less time waiting, more time sightseeing
What to Expect
Make your way to any of the 34 stops (see itinerary) to validate your 24- or 48-hour ticket, then hop aboard one of the open-top double-decker buses. Your tickets offer access to both the Sydney and Bondi Beach bus routes, which connect at Cook and Phillip Park, 100 William Street or Central Station stops.
Each circuit takes around 1.5 hours, and you can jump on and off as many times as you like. Perhaps get off at Sydney Harbour to enjoy magnificent views of Sydney Harbour Bridge and Sydney Opera House, take a stroll around Hyde Park or the Royal Botanic Garden, or explore Chinatown. Or visit Sydney Fish Market, watch the surfers at Bondi Beach, and discover neighborhoods like the Rocks and Paddington.
While onboard, don’t forget to plug in your headphones and listen to the audio commentary, which points out all the main attractions along the route, and offers background history and fun facts to help you learn more about the Harbour City.

It’s a nice bus tour throughout Sydney with all major attractions. We stopes several times. We loved the Fish-Market for lunch. Pretty touristic bit still worth a visit for very fresh seafood lunch.
