Starting at Customs House you will discover some of Sydney's CBD architectural masterpieces with AAA's trained volunteer tour leaders in a leisurely two- hour walk,tracing the development of the city and the evolution of skyscrapers which define Sydney's skyline! We will also see part 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 architectural icons Aurora Place and the 6-green-star No.1 Bligh Street.
See how adapted buildings have given 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 a spot with a view of the harbour and the Sydney Opera House, Sydney's UNESCO World Heritage listed architecture.
