From December you can get an inside look at the hidden world waiting to be found on the outskirts of Sydney, with Sydney Out Back tours. These guys can get you off the well-worn path in full or half day tours, and within a mere 45 minutes from the city you’ll be exploring National Parks and the Northern Beaches.

You’ll see some of the most beautifully untouched areas of the lower Hawkesbury and Ku-ring gai Chase National Park, as well as discover spectacular Aboriginal heritage at one of the most sacred indigenous sites. Part of the tour even includes a cruise on a 50ft motorboat to see ancient rock carvings that are otherwise inaccessible.
