Colony

Walk a mile (or two!) in the footsteps of soldiers, convicts, and sailors from Sydney’s very early colonial days.

Customs House to Millers Point

Path of the settlers

This tour takes you through some of Sydney’s sandstone history and foundations,
plus a few of its oldest pubs

There’s a reason why the short version of ‘public house’ is a ‘pub’. Eat, walk, and have some of the ol’giggle water like the settlers that came before you.

Highlights

Customs House

Start your journey with a quick history lesson in this landmark building and by late Friday afternoon, watch the locals swarming for a beer or two.
The house comes alive during winter’s Vivid Festival, where it transforms and dazzles as one of the event’s most popular light displays.

Observatory Hill Park

For a stunning view of the world-renowned Sydney Harbour Bridge, take a pit stop at one of the locals’ most popular spots.
It’s also home to Sydney Observatory, where you can take a peek at constellations in the southern sky.

Walsh Bay Wharves

Once home to many a sailor and shipment, the wharves are now home to the Sydney Theatre Company and a delicious array of restaurants and eateries. Stop for a drink at the Theatre Bar at the End of the Wharf and enjoy the sunset at the end of the walk.
