A Sydney and Bondi Beach bus tour lets you enjoy all the benefits of a guided tour—including hassle-free transportation and onboard audio commentary—while exploring the sights at your own pace. Tickets are valid for 24 or 48 hours, so you can hop on and off at attractions like Sydney Harbour, the Rocks, Royal Botanic Garden, and Hyde Park, or simply enjoy the views from an open-top double-decker bus.
  • Convenient hop-on hop-off transportation on an open-top double-decker bus
  • Several stops around the city including Sydney Harbour, Bondi Beach, and Darling Harbour
  • Onboard audio commentary ensures you don’t miss anything
  • Travel along two routes with buses departing regularly for your convenience
What to Expect
Make your way to any of the 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. You can jump on and off as many times as you like on each circuit. 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.

This is a great way to see Sydney and Bondi. All hop on hop off buses do take 1-2 hours to complete one whole loop which can get annoying when you only have the ticket for one day and you have many sights to explore. We purchased this ticket to get to Bondi hassle free which we

I was extremely unimpressed with these tours. I have been on several hop on hop off buses around the world but this tour was so poor in so many ways. The entire experience was unorganised, time-consuming (far greater than advertised), and unpleasant. The commentary was minimal

Conveniently located pick up location in downtown. We kicked off our trip to Sydney by taking the Big Bus tour. We didn't get off as we didn't want to wait for the next bus, so we took the complete route first. We later got off to have lunch at the Hard Rock Cafe.

This bus takes you to all of the important destinations across the city, be aware that the driver does not tell you exactly which stop you are stopping at, they stop and you have to work out where you are, and when to hop off. Other drivers were much better, so just play it by
