Ratings and Reviews
I love the app.
l did the Skirting Sydney walk on my own and had the best time discovering Sydney in the 1800s and 1900s. I was inspired by stories of women who through adversity or tenacity made a difference to their city which is now my city.
The interactive map and brief description of each point of interest was perfect.
I’m now looking forward to working my way through the other walks and sharing this discovery with others.
