Overview
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.
Highlights
  • 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.

Sorry, we love Sydney and are just here for a long weekend visit. No problem with the staff but once on board hardly anyone could get there speakers working up on top deck on the first bus. The next bus the speakers worked but half the time they weren’t on. There were visitors

The bus is a great way to great an overview of the city if you have a limited time, which we did. Only complaint I have is that the recording system was not totally reliable.

We took the bus and it was quiete long to make the complete circle. If you a short on time I would advisse you not to go. We had a week here so it was invaluable to us to make decisions on where we wanted to go. It gave us a good idea of Sydney and it's wonderful attractions.
