Amongst the internationally renowned iconic attractions lie secret gardens and boardwalks, back alleys and abstract perspectives.

The tour takes a 'hands-on' learning approach and guides you to master your camera's functions giving you ideas and insightful tips to help you capture Sydney's scenery, harbour, architecture and people, with time and freedom to capture your own inspiring images too.

You will begin at historic Luna Park, where you will capture the colour and lights. Then you will traverse the Sydney Harbour Bridge to see the spectacular cityscape from the tall pylons. Then, through the historic archaeological remnants of The Rocks you will get an insight into how the early founders lived. Your experience is culminated with a bird's eye view of the iconic sails of the spectacular Opera House.
