Thanks to our volunteer tour leaders, all AAA tours tell a compelling story about Sydney and its architecture with a focus on the contemporary city.
Sydney City Walk every Saturday morning at 10.30am.
Sydney’s central business district from Martin Place down to Circular quay changed dramatically after World War 2. We examine many of the buildings in the cbd and trace the development of modernism and the high rise tower. From Harry Seidler’s iconic Australia Square completed in 1967, the tour explores the most exciting free-standing buildings of the late twentieth century, including the recently completed Deutsche Bank Place by British architect, Sir Norman Foster. Also on this tour are ingenious solutions to more recent heritage requirements, like the dramatic canilevering of the Governor Philip tower that protects 19th century terrace houses, or the excavation beneath the Botanic Gardens to provide more classrooms for the Conservatorium of Music.
