Jean and her grandson are from Florida, USA. She promised Marcus she would bring him to Sydney to see the New Years Eve fireworks. While they were here, they thought they would have a bit of fun and do an eastern Sydney trike tours.
Our trike rider Brian picked them up from their hotel in The Rocks. Firstly, they rode over the famous Sydney Harbour Bridge. The view of the arches is fantastic without a metal roof over your head. More than 6,000,000 rivets were used to assemble the various plates on the bridge.
First stop was Jeffrey St Wharf, Kirribilli. The view is wonderful looking across Sydney Harbour towards the iconic Sydney Opera House and the CBD. Next, they rode the Kirribilli Loop. On the Loop, you will see the underside of the northern end of the SHB – Sydney Harbour Bridge. They finished the loop by riding past Luna Park and the North Sydney Olympic Pool.
The Eastern Suburbs beaches
Then, they headed back over the bridge to the Eastern Suburb beaches. The lovely Tamarama and Bronte Beaches were first. All along this stretch of beach coastline is very scenic, we could stop anywhere and get good photos.
Continuing on, the road went past the famous Bondi Beach so they rode past the beach and through Bondi. Moreover, the trike certainly was an attention draw card. Therefore, be prepared for plenty of people looking at you!
the infamous Gap
After that, we continued on to the infamous Gap. Unfortunately, The Gap is a well known place for suicides in Australia. But, it has beautiful views to the Tasman Sea. It is an ocean cliff on the South Head peninsula in eastern Sydney.
Following along the New South Head Road, they rode through the eastern suburbs of Vaucluse, Rose Bay, Double Bay and Rushcutters Bay. However, time was almost up so Brian rode through the city and dropped them off, back at their hotel.
In conclusion, the eastern Sydney trike tours was a big success. Jean and Marcus had a great experience, very memorable.
