In this Experience you'll be personally chauffeured along the entire coastline of Sydney's Northern Beaches. You'll see a minimum of 10 beaches. I'll tell you the history of the area and show you some very significant locations!

I'll provide water, chips, snacks and banter, while we explore this beautiful part of the world. Plenty of options for food at lunch time. Aussie Meat Pies, Sausage Rolls, Salads, Smoothies, whatever you feel like. If you're Vegetarian, no worries, I know where to get the best salads in Sydney. I know almost every food shop on this 32km stretch of coast!

We'll sightsee at least 10 incredible beaches and several seaside towns. And we'll stop at the best spots. You're in for a treat, from Palm Beach to Manly. I'll show you the furthest Northern Point of Sydney. We'll visit a famous light house, witness where the TV show "Home and Away" is filmed, park the car at several lookouts (coastal observation points), take photos, have a swim if you need. Basically you'll be seeing the most incredible and natural and secret and breathtaking parts of Sydney, places that are not advertised anywhere.

This is where I grew up. This is what I want to show you.

Hey I'm Sean!

I grew up here on the beautiful Northern Beach of Sydney! It's been home for 30 years. I know every nook and cranny of these beaches. Every shortcut, every road, every grain of sand. Secret caves, secret trails, secret lookouts, I've found them all and I'll show you!

I live next to Freshwater Beach, which is the birthplace of Australian surfing! I go swimming every day of my life at this beach and usually surf a lot in summer. I love showing people around and getting to know people's different cultural backgrounds. In my spare time I DJ all around the Northern Beaches, do part-time acting, organise Airbnb Experiences and love morning coffees and long distance runs!

Where you'll be

We'll begin by stopping at the BIRTHPLACE of Australian surfing, for a coffee and some history. Then we'll go and see Palm Beach. We'll climb up to the iconic Lighthouse and observe the world from this 360 view. This beach is where the famous "Home & Away" TV series is filmed. I'll show you the "Summer Bay" set. I do some acting on this show, so I know all the spots they film. Next we'll have a swim, or depart for the full day of adventure!

Sean’s Northern Beaches Tour was the best day that I’ve spent in Sydney so far. He takes you from Palm Beach to Manly with all the secret local spots inbetween! We got to choose which beaches we wanted to swim at, and which ones to explore, and which ones to visit briefly. Sean let the group decide on what we felt like all day. Complete freedom! What we wanted for lunch, where we wanted photos, if we needed snacks, he went above and beyond the daily schedule. I really like that he was flexible like that! You wouldn’t get this kind of treatment and attention from any other tourism company. He was definitely catering for everyones needs, the whole 7 hours. The best thing was - you don’t need to bring any money! Everything is included. You just sit back and enjoy the scenic drive and immaculate beaches... Beer in hand! Thanks Sean! Had a great day with you mate. 5 star experience.

I went on Sean’s “Ultimate Northern Beaches Tour” and loved it. 7 hours of endless beaches. With a lighouse stop and a free lunch. It’s so hard to arrange a trip like this along Sydney’s beaches, any other way. To get your own private driver for a day would cost triple this price in a Taxi or Uber. Additionally Sean grew up here, so he knows everything about the area. He gave me the biggest choice for my free lunch as well! I got a gourmet pie from a famous pie shop called Upper Crust. It’s so refreshing to tick off the entire Northern Beaches of Sydney in one day. We stopped a couple of times for a swim and got to see some amazing views. I’ve wanted to tour these beaches for so long, but it was never available as an option until now. Thanks Sean and thanks Airbnb Experiences! Great day.

So much fun! The Northern Beaches of Sydney are INCREDIBLE! I've never seen this many beautiful beaches in one day. There's no other tour like this. I was chauffeured along this breathtaking stretch of coastline all day with an Airbnb group, stopping at lookouts, hearing about the history of the area and swimming at any beach we wanted. Sean bought everyone lunch and we all had a couple of beers while we explored the best beaches in Australia. What a day to remember. So relaxed and cruisey and cool. Sean picked all of us up from Manly in the morning. He shouted everyone a coffee while we chatted and got to know each other. We first drove out to Palm Beach Light House and saw some unbelievable 360 degree views! Amazing walk up to the top. Then he showed us where the TV show 'Home & Away' is filmed. We got a first class walk through "Summer Bay". Sometimes they're filming on the day Sean takes you! We then drove to areas I didn't think could even exist. Cool secret little roads that link the beaches together. A couple of caves and headlands. I especially remember a scenic road between Palm Beach and Whale Beach where the ocean opened up and took up the whole horizon. Sean literally drove us and entertained us from "Palmy" to Whale Beach, Avalon Beach, Newport Beach, Bungan Beach, Mona Vale Beach, Warriewood Beach, Narrabeen Beach, Collaroy Beach, Long Reef... the list goes on... I lost count... The last place we visited was "Shelly Beach" in Manly. I'd seen this beach on google and it was great to see in real life. Definitely a 5-star experience and I would recommend this to others for sure. Great value. Got some great photos. This tour has made me love Sydney even more. Thanks Sean!
