The route begins at Wynyard Park near Wynyard Train Station in the heart of Sydney city centre. This walk showcases Sydney’s oldest neighbourhood and takes people along the Hungry Mile, Barangaroo and Millers Point. The tours ends at the Heritage listed Hero of Waterloo Hotel which is a 5 minute walk from Circular Quay and The Rocks.

The friendly tour guise will tell you historical stories and show pictures that help you compare what was then, and what is now. Short performances will take you back in time to experience the past, the people and for a brief moment, experience their lives. 
In line with the great traditions of bush poetry and the best of storytelling we tell tales tall and true: engrossing, poignant, funny & most of all, entertaining.
