An action-packed holiday in Sydney – Tonight on TRAVEL GUIDES
This week, our travel guides get an insider’s view of Sydney – secret sights, stylish food and the hippest spots locals love.
With millions of tourists each year seduced by one of the sexiest cities on the planet, our guides will spend a week living like a local and going behind fabulous beaches, houses and the famous Harbor Bridge to find out if Sydney has a beauty that is more than skin deep.
Will our guides decide if the other side of Sydney is worth seeing or is it just a pretty face?
To kick off their vacation in true Sydney style, our guides walk along the 4km of stunning coastline from Bondi to Bronte – a morning ritual for residents of the eastern suburbs showcasing some of the city’s hottest scenery – to both natural and sculpted.
Then it’s time to try out some of the latest fitness craze sweeping Sydney, including an outdoor aerobics class with RetroSweat that left some of our guides in need of a hip replacement!
And Supball at Manly Wharf which is a unique cross between netball, water polo, lacrose and rugby – all on a stand up paddle board.
Our guides’ holiday hits The Rocks where they step back in time to explore Australia’s oldest European settlement, loved by tourists and locals alike for its cafes, pubs and markets.
Next is a harbor cruise aboard a tall ship for a true sailor experience. Some of our guides overcome their fears and climb 22 meters high to the crow’s nest for the best vantage point – and others prefer the view safely from the deck.
Our guides decide it’s time to look the part in Sydney and visit the chic suburb of Double Bay for a makeover!
They visit celebrity hairstylist Joh Bailey and celebrity beautician Maria Nitsas for waxing and spray tans, and they even try to turn back time with an “aqua gold facial” aka “the treatment”. botox facial” at the Bay MediSpa.
So, having tasted life like a local, how will he rate his night out in Sydney out of five stars?
