holiday trike tour surprise – Daniel + Lara 06.03.21

Lara organised a holiday trike tour surprise. They are in Sydney for a holiday. She thought it would be a great experience to explore Sydney with us. It is a great way to see places tourists/visitors to our wonderful city don’t usually see. If we do say so ourselves. 😎

Our trike rider Steve picked them up from a hotel at Circular Quay.

Mrs Macquarie’s Point

Firstly, they rode past the Royal Botanical Gardens to Mrs Macquarie’s Point. It has beautiful views looking west towards the Sydney Opera House and the Sydney Harbour Bridge. They ride past Mrs Macquarie’s Chair. Mrs Macquarie’s Chair is an exposed sandstone rock cut into the shape of a bench, on a peninsula in Sydney Harbour. It was hand carved by convicts in 1810, for Elizabeth Macquarie, the wife of Major-General Lachlan Macquarie, Governor of NSW.

Continuing on, 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. Next 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).

Then it was through the eastern suburbs of Sydney, including the Bays: Rose Bay, Double Bay and Rushcutters Bay. Next the riders usually stop at Bondi Beach for photos and so our passengers can have a proper look at the beach.

Bondi Beach, Tamarama and Bronte

Next, it was fun riding past the famous Bondi Beach. In this area, onlookers always seem to wave. 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. So far, and the whole way, the holiday trike tour surprise in Sydney was a huge success.

Then, they rode past more of the lovely eastern beaches – Tamarama and Bronte. Tamarama is an eastern beachside suburb of Sydney, in NSW. It is affectionately nicknamed Glamarama (or Glamourama), as it is a beach where wannabe trend setters come to sunbathe and swim or simply try to be seen. 😎

Centennial Park

Next, they rode through the lovely Centennial Park. 120 fields and venues, and 35+ different sports played, Centennial Parklands 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.”

Oxford Street

Oxford Street, home of great fashion and jewellery designers. The western section is widely-recognised as Sydney’s main gay district.

However, the hour was almost up. Steve rode our passengers back to their hotel. In conclusion, the holiday trike tour surprise in Sydney was a huge success. A real surprise for Daniel, our passengers loved every second of the experience. #feelthefreedom https://trolltours.com.au/product/the-city-viewer/

21st birthday trike tour – Zamanos Family 04.03.21

Adoni’s 21st birthday present from his Fam Bam – Tina really wanted to have some fun with her family. She wanted to organise a 21st birthday trike tour. Sure, we can help. In an email, Tina wrote:

“Our son Adoni is turning 21 and I wanted to do something very special for him. He has a disability. I chose your organisation because you have experience with clients that have a disability. I was hoping that you can please help me to organise a extreme experience for our family.
When I showed Adoni what you do he was so excited and had the biggest smile I’ve ever seen.
Can you please contact me so we can arrange specific details.
Thank you very much
Tina”

And that’s exactly what we did. We organised two trikes to take the family on a fun and memorable 21st birthday trike tour around Sydney.

Our trike riders Craig and Steve, met the family at their home in the inner west suburb of Glebe. After a few photos of them on the trikes, they rode through the inner west and onto the flyover. This led them onto the Sydney Harbour Bridge. 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.

After the interesting ride over the iconic Harbour Bridge, they rode to Jeffrey Street Wharf. Here, they stopped for more photos. 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. Back onto the Sydney Harbour Bridge and headed south into the city.

Eastern suburbs beaches including Bondi Beach and Tamarama

The family are cricket tragics, so the riders rode past the Sydney Cricket Ground. Onto the lovely Centennial Park, which they rode through. Next, they went past the eastern suburbs, to Clovelly Beach, Bronte Beach and Tamarama. 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. So far, and the whole way, the 21st birthday trike tour around Sydney was a huge success.

However, the 2 hours was almost up. The riders took the passengers through the posh eastern suburbs of Dover Heights, Vaucluse, Rose Bay, Rushcutters Bay and Double Bay. Now, time was up so Craig and Steve dropped the family back at home. The 21st birthday trike tour was a huge success. Tina wrote on our Facebook page:

Stopping north of the Sydney Harbour Bridge. The view over Sydney Harbour towards the Sydney Opera House and the city is beautiful.

We are happy to pick up from home.
Just remember, the tour starts from pick up.

trike tour to Harley shop – Dyllan + Steven 03.03.21

Originally our passengers wanted to do the City Viewer tour. After thinking about it, they decided on a totally different route. So, when Craig our trike rider turned up at their hotel, they asked if he would do a the trike tour to Harley shop.

Sydney Harbour Bridge

Steve loves the Harleys and wanted to by a t-shirt and wallet. Craig loves Harleys also so knows where all the Harley shops are in Sydney. Firstly, they rode from their hotel, through the city then across the Sydney Harbour Bridge. 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.

Spit Bridge

Continuing on, they rode through the lower north shore suburbs of Neutral Bay and Mosman. Next, they rode over the Spit Bridge which crosses Middle Harbour, this is always fun. The Spit Bridge is a steel and concrete girder bridge with a bascule lift span. The lovely views of Middle Harbour and hundreds of yachts are hard to forget. Riding further up the hill they rode into the northern beach suburbs of Seaforth and Clontarf. So far the the trike tour to Harley shop was a lot of fun.

Northern Beaches Harley Davidson

Further along and into the Northern Beaches, they arrived at Northern Beaches Harley Davidson. They all had a look around the big boy’s toy shop before continuing on to Manly Beach. Famous for its pine trees and it’s long. From north to south, the three main sections of Many Beach are Queenscliff, North Steyne, and South Steyne.

Dyllan + Steven were dropped of at Manly Corso. Here they were going to eat some lunch before catching a ferry back into Sydney city. In conclusion, the trike tour to Harley shop was a great success. They saw the big boy toys and saw some of the lovely sights as well.

trike tour into the country – Stephen + Val 28.02.21

The trike tour into the country was hilarious to organise. Val organised it as a surprise for her husband, they had been wanting to do some sort of fun experience. We had to organise it in the wee hours of the night and day when he was doing something else. After the ride, Val wrote 😂:

Testimonial

Hi Katrina,
Great time just cruising with Max. Great guy. Thank you.
I was able to keep it a complete surprise from hubby. Just kept reminding him he had 2 hours from 11 booked in with Max. Max is also my youngest son’s name.
The look on hubby’s face when Max took him out to see the trike was priceless.
Thanks again. Val

out of town and into nature

Val really wanted them to get out of town and into nature. Our trike rider Max picked them up from their home in Richmond. Richmond is roughly 63kms north west of Sydney. After a discussion and confirmation of where to go, they kitted up and hopped onto the trike.

Bells Line of Road

Max rode them through Richmond and onto the Bells Line of Road. This led over the lovely Hawkesbury River. Then it was through the lovely towns of Kurrajong and Bilpin (and others). Still on Bells Line of Road, they rode through Mount Tomah and onto Mount Banks. From here, there is a beautiful view west towards Bathurst and the Jenolan Caves. The trike tour into the country is a huge success so far!

Continuing on, they called in to see more beautiful vistas. However, the 2 hours was half way gone, it goes so fast! Max turned around and headed back down Bells Line of Road to Richmond and the passenger’s home. In conclusion, the trike tour into the country was a huge success. Stephen was hugely surprised and they both had a fantastic time. Feel the freedom.

Bells Line of Road is known for its bends so is very popular with motorbike riders. This weekend however, is the Supercars at Bathurst. Police were everywhere, drug and alcohol testing. It took its name from Archibald Bell Junior, the explorer who at the age of just nineteen years crossed what was to become one of the most scenic routes across the Blue Mountains.

trike 3Bridges tour – Cameron + Rebecca 19.02.21

Cameron + Rebecca were in Sydney for a holiday. What could be more fun (and different) than doing a trike 3Bridges tour? It’s a great way to see Sydney’s main bridges which all have wonderful views. Our trike rider Craig, picked them up from their hotel in Surry Hills.

Sydney Harbour Bridge

Firstly, they rode over the Sydney Harbour Bridge. 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.

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.

They continued riding on through North Sydney and Crows Nest before joining River Road. It is a fun road to ride on. River Road leads to Burns Bay Road which, in turn, leads to another bridge but not one of the main three.

Fig Tree Bridge, Tarban Creek Bridge, Gladesville Bridge

The Fig Tree Bridge opened in 1963 and spans the Lane Cove River. After that bridge, they continued on and crossed the second of the bridges Tarban Creek Bridge. This spans Tarban Creek, likewise, it has nice views east to the Harbour Bridge. Then they got to bridge #2 of the main 3 Bridges, the Gladesville Bridge. It has wonderful views along Parramatta River towards the Harbour Bridge and the city.

This bridge is on the main arterial thoroughfare of Victoria Road. They travelled along for a short while before turning off into the inner west suburb of Drummoyne. Following the shoreline of Iron Cove, which is part of the Parramatta River, they saw some lovely water views. It is part of the 7 km long Bay Run. So far, the trike 3Bridges tour surprise is a huge success.

ANZAC Bridge

Our favourite bridge is the ANZAC Bridge. We think it is incredible, a work of art and design. It is main bridge #3. Similarly, it is also great to see without a roof over your head inhibiting the view.

Most noteworthy, the stay cable design concept development and final design for the new bridge were carried out by the Roads & Traffic Authority of NSW. Finally, the bridge was opened to traffic on 03 December 1995 as the Glebe Island Bridge.

The bridge was given its current name on Remembrance Day in 1998 to honour the memory of the soldiers of the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (known as Anzacs) who served in World War I.

However, the hour was up so Craig dropped our passengers back at their hotel. The passengers thought the trike 3Bridges tour surprise was fantastic, a great way to see parts of the city only the locals know about. https://trolltours.com.au/product/three-bridges-trike-tour/

trike tour present in Sydney – David + Tanya 15.02.21

The trike tour present in Sydney was bought for our passengers – by their sons! Their sons reckoned it would be a great present for when they holidayed in Sydney – and it was!

Woolloomooloo and the iconic Harry’s Café De Wheels

Our trike rider Craig, picked them up at the Four Seasons Hotel. Firstly, they rode through Sydney city to the inner eastern suburb of Woolloomooloo. This means they rode past Finger Wharf and the iconic Harry’s Café De Wheels which is always interesting. Harry’s Café de Wheels has been serving customers for over 80 years. They make delicious pies, hotdogs and more.

the infamous Kings Cross

This leads up into the infamous Kings Cross – 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). Continuing on, they rode through the posh eastern suburbs of Rushcutters Bay, Double Bay, Rose Bay and Vaucluse.

Bondi Beach, Tamarama and Bronte

Next, it was fun riding past the famous Bondi Beach. In this area, onlookers always seem to wave. 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 recorded by the Australian Museum that Bondi means place where a fight using boondi sticks (nullas nullas or fighting sticks) took place. So far, and the whole way, the trike tour present in Sydney was a huge success.

Then, they rode past more of the lovely eastern beaches – Tamarama and Bronte. Tamarama is an eastern beachside suburb of Sydney, in NSW. The locals (including us) call it Tamarama. It is affectionately nicknamed Glamarama (or Glamourama), as it is a beach where wannabe trend setters come to sunbathe and swim or simply try to be seen. 😎

60th birthday: spectacular tour – Brad + Rob 12.02.21

The 60th birthday: spectacular tour was given to Brad by his girlfriend, last year. She ended up not being able to come on the tour so he brought his best mate.

We organised our trike rider David, to pick them up from Brad’s place in Kirrawee. This is in the Sutherland Shire.

In summary, they rode through the Royal National Park to the amazing Sea Cliff Bridge. Then they returned via the National Park and Waterfall. Then, too soon, it was back to Kirrawee.

The Royal National Park

Firstly, they rode through Sydney city to the south through the Royal National Park. The Royal National Park is Australia’s first National Park and after Yellowstone in the U.S.A. was the second National Park in the world to be established.

Interestingly, the park was originally named The National Park but this was changed in 1955 after a quick visit by Queen Elizabeth II to the Royal National Park. It was created as a people’s park in 1879 and the park covers an area of 132 sq km. So far, the The 60th birthday: spectacular tour was such fun.

Coalcliff and Clifton

After travelling through the relaxing natural Australian bush, we travel the road between Coalcliff and Clifton, it used to have some scary moments. The potential of falling debris or subsidence into the sea made it necessary to close the road, but all is well again.

Sea Cliff Bridge

However, the impressive 665 metre Sea Cliff Bridge is now in operation, snaking its way around the cliffs and over the water, offering a far safer but spectacular route.

In conclusion, the The 60th birthday: spectacular tour was the best birthday present ever. Brad wrote this before we had a chance to send a follow up email:

Testimonial 1

Hi Katrina 
Just wanted to say big thank you to Troll Tours. Our Tour Guide David was wonderful and we have had the best trip down thru the Royal National Park today. Wonderful views, open road and very nice Trike. We loved the experience, thanks again.
Kind Regards 
Brad

After the follow up email Brad wrote:

Testimonial 2

Thanks Katrina 
We had a great day and David was lovely very knowledgeable and a very safe driver. We both loved the trip thru the Royal National Park. Normally when I drive the same route I’m too busy driving to look at the scenery. But with the Trike you get the Big Sky View and fresh air too !! This was a gift voucher for my birthday and this is not something I would have normally considered for myself.

However after experiencing the ride, I would consider buying this as a gift for friends and family. Great service, we loved it! Thanks for the photo and yes please feel free to use on your website.
Kind Regards
Brad

3Bridges trike tour surprise – Allan + Glenda 01.02.21

The 3Bridges trike tour surprise was organised by the passenger’s son-in-law. They are visiting the family in Sydney so he thought it would be a nice surprise. It sure was! Living in western Sydney, it’s not possible to see all the Sydney city sights. Our tours start from pick up so they drove to Milsons Point, just north of the Harbour Bridge. Craig our trike rider met them there and took them on the 3 Bridges tour.

Kirribilli

Firstly 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. So far, the 23rd Birthday trike celebration is so much fun.

They continued riding on through North Sydney and Crows Nest before joining River Road. It is a fun road to ride on. River Road leads to Burns Bay Road which, in turn, leads to another bridge but not one of the main three.

Fig Tree Bridge, Tarban Creek Bridge, Gladesville Bridge

The Fig Tree Bridge opened in 1963 and spans the Lane Cove River. After that bridge, they continued on and crossed the second of the bridges Tarban Creek Bridge. This spans Tarban Creek, likewise, it has nice views east to the Harbour Bridge. Then they got to bridge #2 of the main 3 Bridges, the Gladesville Bridge.

Our favourite bridge is the ANZAC Bridge. We think it is incredible, a work of art and design. It is main bridge #3. Similarly, it is also great to see without a roof over your head inhibiting the view.

Most noteworthy, the stay cable design concept development and final design for the new bridge were carried out by the Roads & Traffic Authority of NSW. Finally, the bridge was opened to traffic on 03 December 1995 as the Glebe Island Bridge.

The bridge was given its current name on Remembrance Day in 1998 to honour the memory of the soldiers of the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (known as Anzacs) who served in World War I.

Sydney Harbour Bridge

Lastly, they rode over the Sydney Harbour Bridge. 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.

However, the hour was up so Craig dropped our passengers back at Milson Point. The passengers thought the 3Bridges trike tour surprise was fantastic, a great way to see parts of the city only the locals know about. https://trolltours.com.au/product/three-bridges-trike-tour/

17th birthday trike tour – Lara, Lisa + Kent 24.01.21

The surprise 17th birthday trike tour was a huge hit! Lisa contacted us about organising the tour as a surprise for her daughter. We had arranged it in December last year but because of Covid, postponed. Finally, the time was right..

Art Gallery of NSW

Our trike rider Craig picked up our passengers from outside the Art Gallery of NSW. Firstly they rode up Oxford Street. Pre-covid, this is where the Mardi Gras parade route went through. Oxford St is very interesting in its own right.

Sydney Cricket Ground

Secondly, they rode past the Sydney Cricket Ground. Some histroy: in 1811, the Governor of NSW, Lachlan Macquarie, established the second Sydney Common, about 2,400m wide and extending south from South Head Road (now Oxford St) to where Randwick Racecourse is today. Part sandhills, part swamp and situated on the south-eastern fringe of the city, it was used as a rubbish dump in the 1850s, and not regarded as an ideal place for sport. In 1851, part of the Sydney Common south of Victoria Barracks was granted to the British Army for use as a garden and cricket ground for the soldiers. Its first user was the 11th North Devonshire Regiment which flattened and graded the southern part of the rifle range adjacent to the Barracks.

Centennial Park

Next, they rode through the lovely Centennial Park. 120 fields and venues, and 35+ different sports played, Centennial Parklands 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.”

Sydney’s Eastern Beaches

After Centennial Park, the road led to Clovelly Beach. Then to the main eastern beaches of Bronte Beach and then north to the tiny but picturesque Tamarama Beach. 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. So far, the The surprise 17th birthday trike tour was a lot of fun.

The Gap, near Watsons Bay.

Heading north, they rode through some of the eastern suburbs before stopping at the Gap, near Watsons Bay. Here, they stopped at “The Gap” for photos. The view towards North Head and out to the South Pacific Ocean. Watsons Bay sits on the end of the South Head peninsula. However, the 1.5 hours was almost up. So they drove to the drop off via the posh eastern suburbs of Vaucluse, Rose Bay, Double Bay. Circular Quay was the drop off point so they could continue celebrating!

23rd Birthday trike celebration – Daniel + Kayla 15.01.21

Troll Tours is perfect for a 23rd Birthday trike celebration. Mum decided to do something a bit different for Daniel’s birthday. Our trike and Harley tours are definitely that! They are from Sydney but as they wanted to see some beautiful views, not just suburbia. The 3 Bridges was the perfect tours so Craig, our trike rider, picked them up at Circular Quay.
