Tour Summary:

Sydney is known around the world for its beaches, its harbour, its natural beauty and its man made icons. But do you know how LGBT Sydney started? Who were the first Australian LGBT people? Where and why Mardi Gras had its roots and why is it the massive and unique global event that it is today? And of course, where can I meet these hotties I keep seeing on the streets?

Only Planetdwellers Original Sydney Gay Village Walking tour, hosted by our local and friendly guides, can give you all these answers and more as we stroll through parts of Darlinghurst, Kings Cross and Surry Hills!

We end the evening with a celebratory beverage (Our Shout!) at one of Sydney’s most iconic bars, right on the strip!
