Event Details

Description

See the most beloved architectural masterpieces in Sydney CBD with our trained tour leaders!

This leisurely 2-hour walk examines and traces the development of our beautiful harbour city and the evolution of skyscrapers which define our skyline.  We will also see different parts of the tank stream which attracted the first fleet to settle in Sydney Harbour.

From Harry Seidler’s iconic Australia Square tower that dominated the cityscape when it was completed in 1970, the tour explores the most exciting skyscrapers, including Aurora Place and the 6-green-star No.1 Bligh Street, a recent addition to Sydney’s architectural icons.

We also look at adapted buildings that give heritage items a new life, such as the cantilevered Governor Phillip Tower by DCM that protects 19th century terrace houses, or the ingenious excavation beneath the Botanic Gardens to provide more classrooms for the Conservatorium of Music.

The tour will finish at the Sydney Opera House, Sydney's UNESCO World Heritage listed architecture.
