Culture Scouts

Cultural and Theme Tours

Culture Scouts Walking Tours was created to provide a local view of Sydney’s cultural hubs in a capsule experience blending art, food, history, retail and guided conversations.

Their tours are designed for international visitors as well as local wayfarers keen to learn and engage with Sydney’s diverse art and culinary scene. Their itineraries traverse routes of galleries, cafés, shops and bars, led by tour guides who share their diverse knowledge in sociable and thought-provoking tour sessions.

Culture Scouts endeavours to snapshot the city’s modern hotspots and esoteric gems in tour experiences that they believe can catalogue why so many fall in love with Sydney.

So, choose your shoes to walk in. They’ll take care of the rest.

A step away from the CBD, the creative precincts of Surry Hills and Darlinghurst are a living interaction between old and new Sydney.

Culture Scouts will be your guide; from ushering you into one of Australia’s oldest convict jails, to seeking out vintage finds and hidden art galleries. Together, they’ll explore the Sydney precinct with the most dense population of cafes and restaurants, as well as creative minds.

With a gritty past of razor gangs and rag trade, to being the birthplace of the Australian LGBTQI+ rights movement and Mardi Gras, Surry Hills and Darlinghurst is an essential destination for those who want to know the real Sydney.
