Sydney holiday trike tour – Audrey + Christian 02.06.22

Audrey and her teenage son are from the USA. They thought a Sydney holiday trike tour would be a great way to see the major sights. It sure is, it’s amazing how much you can see in 1.5 hours on a trike (or Harleys). Our Chopper 4 trike rider Fred, picked them up from their hotel in the city.

Sydney Harbour Bridge

Firstly, they rode over the famous Sydney Harbour Bridge. As they rode over it, we always tell our passengers to look up and enjoy the unique view. The more than 6,000,000 rivets are so interesting and the arch is so iconic. It’s nicknamed ‘The Coathanger’ because of its arch-based design. It is the largest steel arch bridge in the world.

Kirribilli

Next, they rode past Kirribilli House. Kirribilli House is the secondary official residence of the Prime Minister of Australia. After that, they rode around the corner to Jeffrey Street Wharf. From here, the views across Sydney Harbour towards the Sydney Opera House and the CBD are magnificent. In addition, it also has an up-close view of the side and underneath of the bridge. A perfect place to stop for photos.

The Kirribilli Loop

They rode under the north side of the bridge and continued on their tour. The underside of the northern end of the SHB – Sydney Harbour Bridge – is very interesting. The Kirribilli Loop was finished by riding past Luna Park and the North Sydney Olympic Pool.

Then it was back over the Bridge, through the city to Centennial Park.

Centennial Park

Riding through the huge Centennial Park is a lovely experience. 120 fields and venues, and 35+ different sports played in the Centennial Parklands. It is the largest community sports precinct in Australia! The history is also interesting: “Originally a swamp and then set aside as land for the water source for Sydney. Centennial Park was reconstructed as a public park and opened in 1888. Sir Henry Parkes’ vision was to create a ‘People’s Park’ in which the citizens of Sydney could ‘take in the air’ away from the Sydney town centre.”

Bronte Beach and Tamarama Beach

Next, they rode east to Bronte Beach and then north to the tiny but picturesque Tamarama Beach. It’s lovely to look out to the South Pacific Ocean from any of the beaches. So far, the Sydney holiday trike tour was a lot of fun. It’s hard to keep a teen entertained but the trike tour had his attention the whole time.

Bondi Beach

Further north they came to the famous Bondi Beach. Here they stopped for photos and why not with this view! Just to the left of this photo is the the world famous tower of the Bondi Lifeguards of the Bondi Rescue TV series. They stopped at the famous Bondi Beach for photos, when in Sydney it is one of the places you should visit. The beach is seriously nice (but not our favourite) and we usually stop near the lifeguard station, made famous by the TV series “Bondi Rescue”. Bondi Beach is one of the most visited tourist sites in Australia. Bondi Beach is recorded by the Australian Museum that Bondi means place where a fight using boondi sticks (nullas nullas or fighting sticks) took place.

Eastern suburbs

After there, they headed west through the posh suburbs of the eastern suburbs of Sydney, including the Bays: Rose Bay, Double Bay and Rushcutters Bay. Continuing on, they rode through the infamous Kings Cross, though it has calmed down a lot since it’s heyday – home of the famous and huge Coca Cola sign. Kings Cross is also home to nightclubs and ladies of the night though it is not nearly as raunchy as it was in the 1970s (apparently). Next, they rode through the inner eastern suburb of Woolloomoolloo and past the famous Harry Cafe De Wheels. Harry’s Café de Wheels has been serving customers for over 80 years. They make delicious pies, hotdogs and more.

They rode via the Sydney Opera House which is always spectacular. However, the 1.5 hours was up so Fred rode them to their drop off point at Circular Quay. The Sydney holiday trike tour was a huge success and a lot of fun:

Testimonial 

“We were picked up at our hotel and we’re able to be dropped off at circular quay for our next excursion.

Fred was an excellent tour guide. We saw the opera house up close, crossed the Sydney bridge, stopped at several beaches an got to see the park! If you have no motorcycle experience this is a great intro! Fred is a competent and safe driver. I’m not a tiny frame (size 2x) and my son is over 6 foot but the bike was still quite comfortable for both of us!

My son is a teen and this has his attention the entire time. Having all the gear we needed and a small compartment to store a backpack was helpful.”
