One of our most popular tours is the Eastern Sydney Panorama Tour. It goes for 1.5 hours through the eastern suburbs of Sydney. You can travel on the trike or Harley Davidson motorcycle to some of the most famous sights of Sydney and Eastern Sydney.

Mrs Macquaries Chair

We’ll pick you up from a prearranged place and take you around Sydney Harbour. Past the Botanical Gardens which has Government house situated in it. Next, we ride past the Art Gallery of NSW to Mrs Macquaries Point. A fantastic view of the Sydney Opera House and Sydney Harbour Bridge is found here. 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 New South Wales.

Harry’s Cafe de Wheels

Then, travel through Woolloomooloo, past the famous Harry’s Cafe De Wheels. Harry’s Cafe de Wheels is an iconic pie cart located on Cowper Wharf Road in Woolloomooloo. It’s near the Finger Wharf and Fleet Base East. They are best known for their dish “Tiger Pie”, a type of Australian meat pie named after the original founder of Harry’s.

Ride up to infamous Kings Cross, Colloquially known as The Cross, the area was once known for its music halls and grand theatres. It was rapidly transformed after World War II. By an influx of troops returning and visiting from the nearby Garden Island naval base. It became known as Sydney’s night entertainment and red-light district; however, many nightclubs, bars and adult entertainment venues closed due to the Sydney lockout laws. Today, it is a mixed locality offering services such as a railway station, gyms, supermarkets and bakeries. There are many entertainment venues including bars, restaurants, nightclubs, brothels and strip clubs.

The Coca-Cola Billboard in Kings Cross

Kings Cross is also home to the huge Coca Cola sign. The Coca-Cola Billboard in Kings Cross, Sydney, usually referred to by Sydneysiders simply as “The Coca-Cola Sign” or “The Coke Sign”. It was/is an advertising billboard erected in 1974 by the Coca-Cola Company. It is more often regarded as an iconic landmark than as an advertisement.

Bondi Beach

Further into the posh Eastern Suburbs and we drive past the lovely suburbs of Rushcutters Bay, Double Bay, Rose Bay and Vaucluse. Arriving at the world famous Bondi Beach is quite impressive. You will have a fantastic view from the back of the trike or Harley. We wander along the beach front where you will be momentarily as famous as the beach itself when all passersby can’t help but look at you.

Oxford Street

If there is time we return to your drop off point via the very ‘out there’ Oxford Street, home of great fashion and jewellery designers. The western section is widely recognised as Sydney’s main gay district.

This itinerary can be changed to suit your personal requirements. However, you’ll find the time flies past. Sometimes the route is changed on the day, depending on the traffic. In conclusion, the Eastern Sydney Panorama Tour really is a good one which shows some beautiful parts of Sydney city.

Palm Beach is one of our favourite places in Sydney

Palm Beach is one of our favourite places in Sydney. Palm Beach is a suburb in the Northern Beaches region of Sydney. It is located 41 kilometres north of the Sydney but it’s such a wonderful ride to get to. It’s the destination on our Beach Beauty Tour. https://trolltours.com.au/product/the-beach-beauty

Summer Bay (Home and Away)

Sometimes, Palm Beach is colloquially referred to as ‘Palmy’; and is used for exterior filming of the soap opera Home and Away, as the fictional town of Summer Bay. It is also the subject of the 2018 film ‘Palm Beach’. Despite the hefty property prices it remains a haven for a variety of artists

It is bounded by Broken Bay to the north, the Tasman Sea (within the South Pacific Ocean) to the east, Whale Beach, Avalon and Clareville to the south, and Pittwater to the west.

The Palm Beach photo above

This photo was taken from the headland at the northernmost point. It rises quite sharply from the beach to over 100 metres (330 ft) above sea level, and features an operational lighthouse. The narrow sandy isthmus or tombolo linking the south side of the headland to the rest of Palm Beach had extensive fencing and shrub planting undertaken during the 1980s to combat sand erosion.

Fishing is good at this time of the year. During winter, the Australian salmon run so bring your beach rod!

Specifications of Palm Beach

The 2.3-kilometre long east-facing beach curves in a gentle arc between the lighthouse and Barrenjoey Head. To the sandstone rocks of Little Head in the south, beach linking Barrenjoey to the mainland. North Palm Beach extends 1.4 kilometres south from Barrenjoey, with the northern 600 metres backed by a 200-metre wide densely vegetated foredune. The southern Palm Beach section includes the southern 600 metres (2,000 ft) of beach, which curves to the southeast in the southern Kiddies Corner. It receives increasing protection from Little Head with waves decreasing in height down the beach. Rips usually extend all the way to the head, though usually smaller in size, with a weak permanent rip against the southern rocks.

So as you can tell by this article, Palm Beach is one of our favourite places in Sydney! We can pick you up somewhere on the Northern Beaches and tour to and around here. Or, we can pick you up anywhere in Sydney or the surrounding areas, however, the ride may take longer than 3 hours. Contact us for a tour to Palm Beach – we know you’ll love it!
