About Sydney Tours

While Sydney itself has plenty to offer in terms of attractions, dining and more, look outside the city and your options for exploring some of New South Wales' true wonders open up even further. Sydney's central location means that a number of excellent natural destinations can be reached within the span of a day trip, and as a result a wide number of tour operators provide itineraries to witness their beauty firsthand.

These tours typically depart from the centre of Sydney and offer convenient hotel pickup services, too, so you can simply kick back, relax and admire the scenery or absorb the guided commentary along the way. We outline some of the best of Sydney's tours and day trips in detail below.

Tried and Tested

Popular Sydney Day Tour Destinations

Done all of Sydney's main attractions and looking for further adventures? You're in luck, as Sydney offers plenty to explore within and also serves as an ideal gateway to a number of surrounding destinations within easy rich for a single day journey - and each offers something entirely different to the next, as well. From top-quality local wines, to stunning stretches of sand, to incredible alpine environs, we outline some of the most popular day tour locations from Sydney here.

Blue Mountains / Jenolan Caves Tours

Blue Mountains Tours

Distance from Sydney: 3 hours

An area packed full of rugged - and traditionally Aussie - bush beauty, the Blue Mountains National Park ranks as perhaps Sydney's most popular day tour area, both due to its relative proximity to the city (around a 3 hour drive away) and to its blend of cavernous valleys, gorges and unique rock formations. Nearly every Blue Mountains tour itinerary from Sydney will include a stop at Katoomba to view the iconic Three Sisters formation from its lookout at Echo Point, yet it's also the many charming little townships such as Leura, Blackheath, Glenbrook and other smaller stops that help add an extra layer of character.

Blue Mountains tours can also be combined with stops at a number of other key attractions in the region as well, including the spectacular limestone network of Jenolan Caves, the unique sightseeing "rides" of Scenic World, native animals at Featherdale Wildlife Park, and more.

Hunter Valley Tours

Hunter Valley Tours

Distance from Sydney: 2 hours

New South Wales’ lush Hunter Valley has become one of Australia’s premier wine regions, playing host to numerous acclaimed cellar doors and boutique wineries from some of Australia’s biggest wine producers. The myriad vineyards and lush fields of the region give it a tranquil quality that serves to satisfy visitor’s love of food, wine and scenery - simultaneously making it not just a destination for wine connoisseurs, but also a pleasant escape for those simply looking for a change of pace from the city hustle and bustle.

Day tours to the Hunter Valley from Sydney thus typically revolve around visiting multiple cellar doors and wineries to sample the region's special breed of Semillon (a specialty), Chardonnay and Shiraz along with its signature rich cheeses and fresh fruits. The Hunter lies around 2 hours to the north of Sydney, which is doable on a self-drive by car; however a tour allows you to indulge in its excellent wines and return to the city guilt-free without worrying about the drive back.

Jervis Bay Tours

Jervis Bay Tours

Distance from Sydney: 3 hours

The flagship of the southern portion of NSW's coast, Jervis Bay is a jewel of a beachfront destination renowned for the quality of its sand at the famed Hyam's Beach in particular. A slice of seaside relaxation for those wanting a coastal getaway, Jervis Bay is also renowned for its quantity of marine life which dwell off shore - it ranks as one of Australia's top dolphin-watching destinations in particular.

Over 100 Bottlenose Dolphins call the region home, and dolphin watching tours have fast become the region's most popular activity other than simply walking on the beach itself. Other marine life such as whales (during migratory season), Australian Fur Seals, sea turtles and countless aquatic birds also combine to make for a vibrant and lively - yet peaceful and laid-back - Sydney tour destination.

The Sydney Opera House Tours

Sydney Opera House Tours

Distance from Sydney: 15 minute drive from Sydney CBD (traffic-dependent)

Sticking to the city itself also offers the chance to go behind-the-scenes of one of the country's most famous landmarks, as tours of the Sydney Opera House provide a unique look at the inner workings of this UNESCO World Heritage site. Guided tours of the Opera House go in-depth on the construction and architecture of the fame building, including some of its individual chambers, vaulted ceilings and more intricate carvings and woodwork that make it such as special site.

Opera House tours can also be combined with dining packages either within the Opera House proper, or outside at the popular "Opera Bar" drinking and dining venue that provides a wonderful, breezy atmosphere overlooking Sydney Harbour.
