Get the backstory on Sydney’s iconic cityscape and the real life dramas that shaped it.

Delve into the past as we introduce you to some of the larger than life characters that made the city of Sydney what it is today.

Theirs are tales of vision and self interest, of conflict and collaboration, of brilliance and incompetence.

Along the way we’ll take in scenic highlights like the Royal Botanic Garden, magnificent Sydney Opera House, bustling Circular Quay, the iconic Harbour Bridge, and the colonial sandstone architecture of the The Rocks.

A stop at a café with unrivalled harbour views is all part of this immersive experience in the story of Sydney.
