My Harbourside Detour

Sydney’s most spectacular guided harbour walk.

Sydney’s most spectacular guided harbour walk.

Immerse yourself in the beauty of Sydney’s pristine harbour with this full day guided walking tour along the most spectacular stretch of harbour foreshore – only 20 minutes from Circular Quay!

Explore the magic of Sydney Harbour National Park with My Harbourside Detour. We are licensed to conduct eco-activities in this National Park’s outstanding natural and cultural heritage.

From the moment your feet touch the sand, you ​are guided through the natural beauty of Sydney Harbour National Park, where you learn stories from first settlers, to smelling the fragrant aromas of the native flora that surrounds you. Continue the conversations whilst you enjoy either a picnic style lunch or classic fish and chips from a local Watsons Bay café before returning back to Circular Quay by private boat.

Crafted & designed by Bérangère Graham, this is the perfect opportunity for you to stretch your legs after your long flight to Sydney, or reflect on how this walk compares to paths you have travelled along in previous adventures. In this eco-friendly walk you have the opportunity to make a personal contribution along the path by protecting and caring for the environment.

“We love that we can take a private boat from Circular Quay and 15 minutes later arrive at a secluded beach, before enjoying the day in the wonders of Sydney Harbour National Park. It’s truly magical.”
– Bérangère Graham, Owner of My Detour
