About the tour

Watch the sun rise over the South Pacific Ocean from Manly Beach in Sydney. Listen to the waves crash. And maybe hear the seagulls and other birdlife start their days. This will be less a tour and more some time to just relax and enjoy the start of the day. Great way to greet the dawn for those who prefer to sleep in :-)

Meet your local guide


Elizabeth is an American by birth, Australian by choice. She is a happy immigrant and resident of Sydney for nearly 21 years. Having been fascinated with Australia since she was 12, Elizabeth found that when she arrived in Sydney in 2000, she already knew more about her new home than many of the Australians she met. She finally put all that knowledge to work as a tour guide in 2019 – just in time to really fall in love with it before Covid hit. From the iconic sights that always take her breath away no matter how many times she’s seen them, like the Opera House and the Sydney Harbour Bridge, to the little-known but beautiful corners of the city, Elizabeth loves exploring Sydney and showing it off to friends and guests. She lives in Manly, on Sydney’s northern beaches. She’s been very slowly blogging her way through all 84 of Sydney’s beaches and is working on a travel memoir about riding her bicycle around Europe.

Elizabeth has been guiding since Jun 2019

Relaxing but a little too long looking at the sunrise from the beach. Not for me.

This is one of my favorite VT tours! If you're looking for some time to just zen out and enjoy the sight and sound of a Pacific Ocean sunrise, this is the tour for you. Not so much a "tour" as an "experience". Very enjoyable!

What a spectacular, beautiful sunrise over the ocean! The sight and sound of the surf was very soothing. Elizabeth often swings the camera around suddenly and quickly, so I have several blurry postcards, but today we were watching a sunrise so it only happened a few times. But I still highly recommend this tour if you love the sunrise and the ocean.
