trike tour Christmas presents, Sydney Australia
The Three Bridges Tour.
You’ll ride over the 3 main bridges of Sydney.

Ride over the best (and most famous) bridges in Sydney. The Three Bridges Tour takes one hour and you’ll see parts of Sydney most tourists nor Sydneysiders see.

Our Harley and trike riders arrived at the pickup before the start time. We can pick up at hotels, railway stations, private homes. Anywhere where it is safe to stop. Once our riders meet you at the pick up the riders will ask you to scan our covid QR check in. Next, they will give instructions to you, the passenger(s), and kit you out with helmets and jackets before helping you onto the trike and/or Harley.

Firstly, you will ride 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, after riding across the Harbour Bridge, ride past Kirribilli House. Kirribilli House is the secondary official residence of the Prime Minister of Australia. After that, ride 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

Then ride 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.

Continuing on, ride 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, really you will ride over more than three bridges on the Three Bridges Tour. 😎

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, time was nearly up so our riders dropped our passengers back at their hotel, a great way to see parts of the city only the locals know about. All our passengers love Three Bridges Tour, it is something different and a fun experience. The passengers just relax and enjoy the feeling of freedom.

Eastern Sydney Panorama Tour, Sydney

Harley and trike tour, Sydney Australia
Eastern Sydney Panorama Tour, Sydney

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.
