What to Expect
Make your way to any of the 34 stops (see itinerary) to validate your 24- or 48-hour ticket, then hop aboard one of the open-top double-decker buses. Your tickets offer access to both the Sydney and Bondi Beach bus routes, which connect at Cook and Phillip Park, 100 William Street or Central Station stops. Each circuit takes around 1.5 hours, and you can jump on and off as many times as you like. Perhaps get off at Sydney Harbour to enjoy magnificent views of Sydney Harbour Bridge and Sydney Opera House, take a stroll around Hyde Park or the Royal Botanic Garden, or explore Chinatown. Or visit Sydney Fish Market, watch the surfers at Bondi Beach, and discover neighborhoods like the Rocks and Paddington. While onboard, don’t forget to plug in your headphones and listen to the audio commentary, which points out all the main attractions along the route, and offers background history and fun facts to help you learn more about the Harbour City.

This is a very good way to get an overview of Sydney and the surrounding areas. The buses were clean, easy to enter/exit, the drivers were helpful and courteous. The buses on our 1 day excursion were very timely, too. We found that the map they provide was very helpful, too.
