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.

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.
