Explore The Rocks, CBD, The Bays & Bondi Beach:

This handy hop-on hop-off sightseeing service is the only one of its kind in the capital of New South Wales. Every day of the year their open-top double decker buses chart a course around two diverse and exciting routes: Sydney and Bondi Beach.

The Sydney Route covers key districts throughout city centre, including the CBD, Darling Harbour, Woolloomooloo and Potts Point. At some point during your travels be sure to check out the lively wharfage along Cockle Bay (stop 18), the bustling markets and food scenes of The Rocks (stops 1 & 24), and beautiful green spaces such as the Royal Botanic Gardens and Barangaroo Park.

Connect onto the Bondi route by exchanging buses at any of the following three stops: 3, 4 & 12. You'll start by journeying through Paddington suburb (hop-off available) and past Centennial Park. After crossing Bondi Junction you'll then pass along Bondi Road towards Bondi Beach Terminal, where you can disembark for easy access to the famous beach. Stay on the buses a little longer to reach the northern end of Campbell Parade.

Continuing further along the Bondi route takes you up through Dover Heights then onto Rose Bay, where you can step off next to the Royal Sydney Golf Club. The final location to check out on this route is Double Bay, an affluent suburb filled with top restaurants, boutiques and cafes.
