Það sem verður gert

Get off the beaten track and see a different side of Sydney! Perfect for locals and travellers.

Come join a fun and relaxed walk through the inner-city suburbs of Pyrmont, Ultimo and Glebe. Often ignored by visitors and locals alike, these old neighbourhoods are bursting with stories and hidden gems.

On this walk you'll:
- Learn why there are so many pubs in this part of Sydney and what a "VIP Lounge" is
- Discover the Aboriginal and early European history of the area
- Be surprised by my choice for Australia's "national dish"
- See why this is one of the most multicultural parts of Sydney
- Gain an insight into our unique sense of humour and
- Hear some new Aussie slang along the way

We'll stop for a coffee at my favourite cafe mid-way through the walk, and at the end, we finish with a glass of delicious local craft beer at one of the most unique pubs you'll find in Sydney - complete with a talking pet cockatoo!

Note we walk about 3.2 km (2 miles) at a relaxed pace and a mostly flat route. We've had everyone from 3-year-olds to 80-year-olds complete the walk and it is pram/baby carriage friendly but please message us if you have any questions.

My name is Justin and I'm a recovering lawyer. About 4 years ago I quit my corporate job to work in a happier industry - tourism! I love showing people around Sydney and host 2 of Sydney's top Airbnb Experiences.

I've lived and worked in the Pyrmont/Glebe area for several years and really love this part of Sydney. Since starting this walk, I've shown over 1000 guests my 'hood, including Airbnb's senior executives.

I also run my own tour business (AussieYou Tours) and have solo travelled through South America, Europe & Asia and lived in China - yep, I can speak Chinese!

On some weekends my co-host Kieran will lead these walks. He's a local as well and can't wait to show you around!

If your dates aren't available, please message me straight away. I may have a solution for you <3

Staðsetning

We'll begin our walk at Darling Harbour, meeting on the Pyrmont Bridge. From there, we'll meander through Pyrmont, Ultimo and finish in Glebe, a trendy inner-city suburb with lots of restaurants, cafes, bars and bookshops. We finish near Glebe Point Road at an authentic "outback pub" and very close to the fantastic Glebe markets (Saturdays only).

We just know we would have LOVED this tour with Justin....if we'd been able to make it into Sydney! Unfortunately, COVID. 😞 But throughout our initial planning many months ago up until the sad realization that we wouldn't be able to come, Justin remained a great communicator and understanding host. One of these days, we WILL get to Sydney, and we certainly hope he is still doing tours! His passion for his home city is contagious!

I’m so glad we (mum, 4-year-old, baby, and myself) spent our Saturday morning with Justin on this tour. It was a wonderful, well-paced walk in Pyrmont, Ultimo, and Glebe. I was carrying the baby the whole way and was fine! My 4-year-old barely complained as well. Justin shared insights into the history, society, culture, architecture, and even flora and fauna of the local areas and Australia as a whole. Even though we’ve been staying in Glebe for 6 months, we still learnt a lot and discovered new places that we would not have known or gone to without Justin. The vegemite toast we tried for the first time was surprisingly yummy (gonna get a bottle for ourselves), and coffee was great. Thinking of heading back to the cafes and bakeries we saw on the walk. Justin was very easily contactable, punctual, engaging, and patiently answered all our (many) questions. After the tour, he followed up very quickly with photos and thoughtful information of other places for us to explore with the kids. We feel like we made a new friend in Sydney. I highly recommend this tour even if you’re a local and look forward to going for other tours by Justin. Thank you and all the best, Justin!

I did Justin’s tour a couple of days ago and this time there was another person in the group so that was great! I loved it very much as there was a leisurely pace walking through beautiful neighbourhood of Sydney. Justin was friendly, it really felt like being with a friend. Well worth doing! Thank you Justin!

Lots of fun! The last spot had a surprise guest which we all enjoyed. Definitely an experience worth having, for new visitors and locals alike!

Got to experience Justin's 'hood' that we would have never been able to experience on our own. He shared how the neighborhoods fit in with the history of Sydney's development. All along the way he would say hi to the folks he know in stores & pubs. My wife has a favorite new coffee and we can now say we have tried Vegemite :)

Justin gave not only a super introduction to these parts of Sydney: he fielded all our many questions, providing cool insights, anecdotes and historical facts on Australia, bringing it all full circle. I highly recommend any tour Justin gives!
