About the Tour

Starting at Kings Cross—renowned for its nightlife—this tour will take you on to Potts Point, an upmarket Sydney suburb that is full of great restaurants, cafes and artisan shops. Keep an eye out for several beautiful Art Deco buildings that adorn this area.

From Potts Point you will take a 'secret' lane through to Elizabeth Bay. Arriving at the delightful Arthur McElhone Park, you’ll learn more about Elizabeth Bay House while giving you a chance to enjoy the views of Sydney Harbour.

The tour will continue down to Elizabeth Bay Marina, where you can take a break and stop for a coffee before heading back up the hill and over to Rushcutters Bay.

Rushcutters Bay has a beautiful park with a tennis court, cricket oval and footpaths enabling you to continue exploring more of Sydney Harbour’s many bays and inlets.

How VoiceMap Works

Focus on your surroundings, not the screen

VoiceMap’s audio tour app uses GPS to play audio automatically, at the right time and place. Just install it, then download your tour and go to the starting point to begin your walk, drive, cycle, train trip or even boat ride.

Follow a route with turn-by-turn-directions

Tours follow a route from a fixed starting point. This is how we provide turn-by-turn directions. It also helps publishers tell a story greater than the sum of its parts. But you can use Resume to pick up a tour from the closest location whenever you like.

Listen as many times as you like

You can listen to your tours as often as you like using both the VoiceMap app and the VoiceMap website. Your access to tours doesn’t expire.

Take virtual tours anywhere

Just select Virtual mode in the VoiceMap app to listen to tours at home – or anywhere else. You’ll see the option after you download the tour. You can also listen to the whole tour at

Buy for less on and sync

Once you’ve purchased a tour, it’s added to your VoiceMap library. If you sign into the app using the same method you used on the website, you’ll have access to your full library of tours in both places.

Use VoiceMap offline

The VoiceMap app works entirely offline if there’s no data connection, so you don’t have to pay roaming fees. Just download the tour over WiFi before you get started.

Best time of day

This is a beautiful walk all year round. If you are in summer then try and time it to be at Rushcutters Bay by sunrise or sunset, on a clear day.

There are a few steps and hills so please take that into account.


When in Kings Cross, take care of your belongings. Although the area has a reputation for being a little rough, I can assure you, I have lived here long enough to know that the area is safe.


Interesting tour, with perhaps less detail than it should have. Deb seems a bit too in love with celebrity and "quality" destinations, however.
