Što ćete raditi

I meet guests at Milson's Point train station where we proceed to walk to Seidler's office complex. Here is where we get to see elements of his work that will echo throughout the walk. From this vantage point we will also view Sydney's first and most controversial tall apartment block. We then continue past Luna Park and Lavender Bay where we discuss Brett Whiteley and walk through Wendy Whiteley's garden. Next we walk the Bridge and talk about Seidler's connection to the Opera House. We will pause at the Sirius Building for a political insight into public housing in NSW. From here we make our way through The Rocks noting some significant street art. Our next stop is up George street where we visit an example of Seidler's tall buildings as well as contrasting it to the relatively new EY Building. From here we move to the magnificent Australia Square. Via the Angel Arcade we proceed to the Capita Building. Next and final stop is the MLC Tower. At all these destinations we engage with the architecture, art and history of the sites. At this point guests have easy access to public transport.
Other things to note
The walk is roughly 2-3 hours long. A reasonable level of fitness is required as we will be climbing some steps in places. Milson's Point station is not busy so we can meet easily. Meeting time: 10am

I began my first walking tour group in Bangkok while I was living there some years ago. My walks took in many different aspects of Bangkok but I became increasingly interested in Art and Architecture. Sydney is my home town and upon my most recent return I began developing small art and architecture walks. I am particularly interested in modernism and the work of Australia's greatest modernist architect, Harry Seidler. He was also passionate about modern art and many of his buildings contain sculptures, murals, paintings and tapestries.

I've been visiting Sydney for several years and thought I knew it well but Paul's tour showed me another dimension. Seidler's Sydney encompasses architecture, art and anecdote. We covered a lot of ground and I learned so much. Paul has the knowledge to answer any questions while never being too esoteric. He keeps it human. Take this tour if you have an inquisitive mind and learn more about this great city and its people. From both sides of the bridge I shall, in future, look up, because we all tend to look forward or down as we walk and there is so much happening up in the air. You won't believe it.

Pauls way of telling and his enthusiasm makes this a fantastic event for people that like to walk and hear about Seidler. Along stories and visiting buildings Paul also tells other interesting things linked to architecture. Highly recommended.

Paul ran an informative and engaging tour mixed with humour. Even though we visit Sydney often, we still discovered new vistas and perspectives.

This is a great experience that shows you some real hidden gems on both sides of the harbour. Get lucky with the weather (we did!) and you’ll have a wonderful time. We learnt lots, loved it all. Paul is a great easy going guide/host We came to this tour from a recommendation and would thoroughly recommend to others. I reckon even lifelong Sydneysiders would see and learn something new
