What you'll do

I will equip you with a vintage Polaroid camera to capture Sydney from a whole new perspective. Your tour begins with a crash course in Polaroid photography, so you don’t need any knowledge about photography or Polaroid cameras before we start our tour.

Our photo walking tour will start at the Bradfield park, which is right under the Harbour Bridge. It’s one of the best locations to take breathtaking pictures from the harbour and the Opera House. From there we will walk to Luna Park, Sydney’s most iconic amusement park and on to the Milsons point ferry, which will bring us to Circular Quay. We will walk along the harbour to the Opera House, Australia’s most famous architectural landmark, where I will show you the best spots to take some amazing insta worthy photos. Followed by a walk through the Royal Botanic Garden. Our tour will end at Mrs. Macquaries’s chair, a seat carved into a stone cliff, from where you can enjoy a splendid view to the Opera House and the city.

You will get one instant film (20 pictures) by Polaroid Originals plus 10 pictures I will be taking of you with my Polaroid camera (if desired).
(More films can be purchased during the tour)

Even though I had to delay the schedule and arrived late she waited and kindly explained about the tour. The Polaroid was a unique experience and I took a vintage - ish photo with her help. She knows photography skills and it really helped me look good in the picture. It would have been better it I had more time ㅠㅠ she knows some sick spots where locals might go if wanna find out you should try her tour.

I recommend this tour for everyone who wants to visit and take photos of iconic spots in Sydney but doesn’t want to do so with much people. Julia is a cute and thoughtful lady.

This was overall such a great experience and way to see Sydney! I was limited on time in Sydney but with this experience I got to see so much in a unique way. The polaroids are a great souvenir and Julie was a wonderful host with a lot of knowledge! :)

I did this experience with my 18 year old son right off our 14 hour plane ride from the US. This was a perfect way to spend our first few hours! It got us acclimated to Sydney and we hit a lot of the hot spots I had on my list, plus some I didn't know about. My son was so into taking the Polaroid photos!! Julia's style was laid back and she didn't rush us from one location to the next. We also took lots of pictures with our phones. This really was the perfect way for us to see the sites.
