A Pub Crawl With a Difference

Sep 15th, 2010 | By

We are all used to pub crawls. The concept of visiting a few pubs, having a pint in each and catching up with friends is popular. In Australia I have found a different version which could even be added to the tourism brochures. In Sydney, there is a pub crawl by ferry that my nieces and their friends have introduced me to. It makes for a long day but you do some different places that normal tourists probably wouldn’t see. But it does require timing otherwise the ferry times are lost and you can’t afford to wait 30 minutes for the next.
