Our Detours. Sharing Sydney's untold stories.

My Detour all began with little more than a crazy idea 'How to become a Sydney local in a day' and a classic car; 1964 EH Holden Premier.

From a man with a crazy idea to a family enterprise, every My Detour member aims to make your day in Sydney an Unforgettable Local Experience.

With our infectious sense of humour and optimism, you will feel as if you are being shown around the city with old friends.
