If you come to Sydney in a group, you have the option of booking each person in your group on a tour. However, when you have a group of up to 20 people that can be an expensive proposition. Instead, why not hire a minibus in Sydney? If you hire a minibus you can see everything for a fraction of the cost and you will be master of your own destiny.
What can you see in Sydney? Well, within the city itself you can start by driving your minibus to the Sydney Opera House. There is plenty of minibus parking and from the Opera House you will see the famous Sydney Harbour Bridge, Circular Quay, Royal Botanical Gardens, Lady Macquaries Chair, Sydney Tower and The Rocks. From Circular Quay you can also take a ferry to Manly Beach, Taronga Zoo or Darling Harbour. Take your time and see things at your own pace, you dont need a guide to tell you that Sydney Harbour is one of the most beautiful waterways in the world.
From the centre of Sydney you can drive your minibus just 15 minutes to the world-famous Bondi Beach. A further 10 minutes drive and you will be at the Gap at South Head. This area offers a spectacular view of Manly, the Pacific Ocean and the Sydney cityscape.
Worried about getting lost? You neednt be. With the modern technology offered by GPS navigation systems (like Garmin and TomTom) you will never get lost in Sydney. Sydney roads are well marked and your GPS will take your minibus to exact locations. Most minibus hire companies offer GPS navigators for a small cost.
Ok, are you ready to drive your minibus further afield? Just 2 hours west of Sydney are the Blue Mountains. This spectacular range is a must-see. Once youve experienced the spectacular blue-hazed beauty, dramatic cliffs and deep canyons of the Blue Mountains, youll come away refreshed and invigorated.
Just 2 hours north of Sydney is the Hunter Valley. Here you will experience world-class wines and cuisine at over 120 specialty vineyards. Since you are in a minibus, only one person drives while up to 20 passengers can sample the famous Hunter Valley Shiraz and Semillon.
Feel like seeing some spectacular coastline? The unspoilt natural beauty of the southern coastline of New South Wales unfolds in a series of bays and coves. Little townships, many with interesting histories, are known for their fine food and wines, and great country markets. After four hours of amazing driving, you will end up at Pebbly Beach. Here kangaroos graze along the beachfront and rainbow lorikeets come to say hello.
If you dont feel like being the designated driver, most minibus hire companies offer a qualified driver service. Hire a minibus and driver and you can relax and enjoy the ride.
If you are in a group then hire a minibus and see the most spectacular city in the most impressive country in the world.
