This big day out to the south of Sydney winds through Australia's oldest national park, takes in spectacular coastal scenery along the Grand Pacific Drive, then climbs the sandstone escarpment to return via the forests and farmland of the picturesque Southern Highlands. Along the way you'll get up close to native Australian wildlife, traverse the iconic Sea Cliff Bridge, enjoy lunch at a seaside cafe—and perhaps a dip in the ocean—and wander through a eucalyptus forest to see a towering waterfall. You will also sample some of the cool-climate wines for which the region has developed a reputation.

I'm Steve. After studying biological sciences I stumbled into tourism and have been a tour guide now for almost 30 years. I spent half that time overseas but I've rediscovered the joy of showing visitors around my own backyard. He's Steve too! My longtime tour guide colleague, Steve, has been showing visitors to Australia the length and breadth of our vast island continent for decades. He's also the funnier of the two :-) We are both loving showing visitors to Sydney a great day out that combines spectacular scenery, fascinating history, wildlife experiences and good food and wine (or beer).
