why you should get on board

Wander the Beautiful City of Sydney With No Restrictions

The hop-on-hop-off ticket allows you to travel to many of Sydney’s most sought after tourist hotspots at your own pace. You are free to create your own travel itinerary with this pass. On the Red Line, you can stop by the Royal Botanical Gardens, the Sydney Opera House, and the Sea Life Sydney Aquarium. The Power House Museum and the Maritime Museum are great places to see rare exhibits, while Woolloomooloo Bay and Sydney Harbour Bridge offer breathtaking views of the bay area.

On the Blue Route, the Australian Museum is a must-see for history buffs, with its extensive collection of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artifacts, as well as displays on natural history and Australian culture. Next, head to Paddington Markets for a unique shopping experience. Here you'll find a range of artisanal products, from handmade jewelry to locally-made clothing and accessories. End your tour at Bondi Beach, one of Sydney's most iconic beaches. Relax on the golden sands, take a dip in the crystal-clear waters, or enjoy a leisurely walk along the coastal path.

Enjoy a Cruise in Sydney Harbour

Besides the classic hop-on hop-off experience, the deluxe ticket gives you express access to three other tours. The Sydney Harbour cruise would serve as an excellent start to your tour as it opens early in the day. As you glide smoothly through the pearl-blue waters of the harbour, you will see some of Sydney’s most iconic sights such as the Barangaroo and the Sydney Opera House.
