Matthew

Your time in Sydney is precious, so my personal commitment is to show you the very best of Australian landscapes, plants and animals within one day! I’ve spent my life discovering Sydney's hidden jewels and now I’d like to share them with you. In my youth I caught lizards and fish by hand, explored rivers and hiked through untouched valleys. I surfed at the best beaches and have hitchhiked solo right around Australia for 14 months. As a volunteer Aboriginal site monitor, I'm trained to locate, monitor and report on the condition of sites. A scout leader for 10+ years (so great with kids!), a professional artist, photographer and videographer, I'm often making documentaries of Sydney's nature and wildlife. I look forward to meeting you! Your guide in Australia, Matt

Where you'll be

Fresh and authentic, close to nature and away from the masses… this is unlike any other tour in Sydney. Many of the places that we visit are unknown to locals in the area! I take you to places that aren’t on traditional tourist paths. Pristine and uncrowded beaches, gourmet local produce, crystal clear seaside rock pools, magnificent headlands, Aboriginal carvings and cute Aussie animals! Experience Sydney with a local! Ideal for families too!
